Coppell Mayor bought clothes, groceries with city-issued credit card
Brandon Formby and Erinn Connor bring us a very sad story from the State of Texas. The mayor of an affluent town decided to take the life of her 19 year daughter and then take her own life. According to the article, a contributing factor may have been their financial despair and the imminent loss of their house to foreclosure. The death of these two people surprised many that were around them.
You may be thinking, “Matt…What does this have to do with real-estate?” The answer is nothing…directly….but lots indirectly.
The vast majority of people (if not all?) that are reading this have either gone through foreclosure/short sale/loan mod, are going through it now or know someone that has/is. This can be a very harrowing time for the people that are going through what can be a very tumultuous time in their lives. Always keep your eyes and ears open to the warning signs. Always offer to find people professional help if they are on the brink. Always be understanding of the plight of those around you.
If you are reading this and you are thinking about suicide, think about the effect it will have on those that are around you. Also know that life isn’t that bad! If you think it is bad…guess what….it can only get better!
