Before jumping to her death from her 29th story Midtown Manhattan high-rise apartment in January. “First, I’m sorry, by the time you get this, I won’t be alive anymore
April Simpkins, 53, revealed her daughter’s tragic last words on an emotional Wednesday episode of the Facebook series “Red Table Talk
“First, I’m sorry, by the time you get this, I won’t be alive anymore
And it makes me even more sad to write this because I know it will hurt you the most,” Kryst, 30, wrote to her mother.
Kryst sent the texts when she knew Simpkins would be in an exercise class so she wouldn’t be able to intervene, the heartbroken mother said.
“I love you mom, and you are my best friend, and the person I’ve lived for for years. I wish I could stay with you
But I cannot bear the crushing weight of persistent sadness, hopelessness, and loneliness any longer,” the text continued.
“I’ve never told you these feelings, because I never wanted you to worry, and because I hoped they would eventually change, but I know they never will
They follow me through every accomplishment, success, family gathering, friendly dinner.
“I cry almost every day now, like I’m in mourning. I wished for death for years. And I know you would want to know and want to help
“Regardless of that, thank you sincerely for being there for me in some of my loneliness moments without me even telling you I needed you.
“I love you more than any person I’ve ever known. You’ve done nothing wrong, you’ve done everything right.”
