I don't know if this has happened to you or not, but I received the stunning news today that someone I used to work with committed suicide last week. This is a news clip from an article.
"Fatima Cavic, 38, of 1638 Ash St. Des Plaines, was pronounced dead at Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove at about 2:30 p.m. Monday after Elk Grove Fire Department divers pulled her from her submerged silver Mercedes Benz in Busse Lake shortly after 1:30 p.m. Monday near the boat docks on the west end of Busse Lake near Higgins and Route 53"
Fatima worked in our limo company as an owner-operator for 10 years. I talked with her on the phone a lot during that time and saw at least two times a week. She had two children. She was married to a fiery tempered man who also worked with our company and they were nearing the end of their divorce. I liked Fatima a lot. She was a bright woman. I can't recall ever knowing someone as well as I did Fatima, commit suicide. Even though I haven't talked with her in about two years, I am absolutely stunned by the news. I would have loved to have had the chance to talk with her before she took her life.
