The family of a 15-year-old girl from Pennsylvania who commit suicide in June called out their daughter’s bullies in a heartfelt online obituary.
“For the bullies involved, please know you were effective in making her feel worthless,” her family wrote in an online obituary that has since been removed. “That is all between you and God now, but please know that it is not too late to change your ways. Sadie’s death has taken us to dark places, we will stick together and protect one another as we try to make sense of this tragic loss.”
“To all the bullies out there, I just want you to know that as much as we despise your actions never, ever do we wish for you to feel the paralyzing pain that engulfs our bodies, a pain so severe that it makes the simple act of breathing difficult or the guilt that leaves us wondering what we could have done differently-or that struggle to remember the last words we spoke,” the heart-wrenching obituary continued.
“Our hearts are beyond broken. Sadie, it was a privilege to have you in our lives and we will always love you. May you find peace in the arms of God and may we all be kind to one another.”
“May you find peace in the arms of God and may we all be kind to one another.”
