For one reason or another, these famous people opted to end their lives by committing suicide and their famous last words were left in these suicide notes. Just as they were notable in life, these celebrities were notable in their deaths, which came as a shock to their adoring fans, family members and loved ones.
Just like the last words spoken by criminals before their executions, these words will be the last thing remembered by these celebrities. Some spoke to their family members, such as grunge rocker Kurt Cobain and Mexican actress Lupe Velez, while others focused more on themselves, such as in the notes left by author Hunter S. Thompson and poet Sara Teasdale. Other suicide notes or famous last words said very little, such as the simple goodbye uttered by poet Hart Crane before he jumped to his (presumed) death.
Whatever the case, these famous people left more questions than they did answers when they chose to take their own lives.
"When I am dead, and over me bright April Shakes out her rain drenched hair, Tho you should lean above me broken hearted, I shall not care. For I shall have peace. As leafey trees are peaceful When rain bends down the bough. And I shall be more silent and cold hearted Than you are now."
