Mae Schoemer: Beloved friend, anguished individual—tragic death

In memory of Mae Schoemer

One of my friends was going through a divorce and impulsively moved in with a high school sweetheart. Bad news. He was unstable. She was unstable. She lost weight, dropped her support network, spent money, got despondent, bought a gun and shot herself in the head — tragic death. Wouldn’t have happened if guns weren’t available like candy. Senseless death.
