Wynonna Judd (@WynonnaMusic)via several tweets: “Sleep in Heavenly peace Mindy.” ” I sang a song for Mindy tonight & as I was finishing the last … Chorus. The thought flashed in my mind of the night when I was 18 & I tried to commit suicide … I can still remember that overwhelming feeling of just wanting the pain to stop. I didn’t necessarily want to die, but I knew … That I just couldn’t go on feeling so lost. It will always be a mystery as to why some make it through that dark night of the soul & why … Some do not. I feel so sad (& angry too), that addiction continues to take so much from people & those who love them…”
