After the news of Mindy McCready‘s suicide hit the media, country music stars and fans took to social media to express their sadness and shock over a loss of true talent. Mindy’s life since her first record has been a downward spiral of drugs, addiction, law breaking, and loss. Hopefully she can truly rest in peace, and hopefully her children will be wrapped in a loving home.

@TerriClarkMusic I hope our society shows compassion and realizes the severity and reality of mental illness, and addiction. #mindymccready
Yes, we all poked fun at Mindy. It’s sad when someone falls through the cracks of our mental health. Addiction affects many of us in one way or another, but those who can’t find the will to pull through need extra help. We were all shocked by the news that she killed herself, but none of us can truly act surprised. It’s sad to see someone whose future was once so bright, fall into an eternal darkness. Hopefully, Mindy will now be able to rest in peace, and may her children be placed in a loving home who raise them with the memory of their once healthy mother in mind.
