Dorothy Dandridge
1922-1965

"In case of my death - to whomever discovers it - Don't remove anything I have on - scarf, gown or underwear - Cremate me right away - If I have anything, money, furniture, give to my mother Ruby Dandridge - She will know what do to.
- Dorothy Dandridge

Carole Landis

Suicide Note:

Translation:
"Dearest Mommie - I'm sorry, really sorry, to put you through this but there is no way to avoid it - I love you darling you have been the most wonderful mom ever And that applies to all our family. I love each and every one of them dearly - Everything goes to you - Look in the files and there is a will which decrees everything - Good bye, my angel - Pray for me - Your Baby"

Those pictures are the perfect size. They don't overextend the page format but still have good detail.

Poor Dorothy Dandridge. It's not easy being the man who found $10 million

Virginia Woolf suicide note

March 28, 1941


I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel we can't go through another of those terrible times. And I shan't recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can't concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don't think two people could have been happier 'til this terrible disease came. I can't fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can't even write this properly. I can't read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that — everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can't go on spoiling your life any longer. I don't think two people could have been happier than we have been. V.

Fanny Godwin suicide note

The daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin, Fanny Godwin was the half-sister of author Mary Shelley. Her suicide led Mary's husband Percy Shelley to pen the poem On Fanny Godwin


she rights

I have long determined that the best thing I could do was to put an end to the existence of a being whose birth was unfortunate, and whose life has only been a series of pain to those persons who have hurt their health in endeavoring to promote her welfare.

Perhaps to hear of my death will give you pain, but you will soon have the blessing of forgetting that such a creature ever existed as...

Fanny Godwin

Though living is no newer.

When I am dead, and over me bright April
Shakes out her rain drenched hair,

As leafey trees are peaceful
When rain bends down the bough.
And I shall be more silent and cold hearted
Than you are now.

Jim Carrey's ex's suicide note:

“I’ve spent 3 days now in disbelief that you're not here. I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back. I could, I just don't have the will this time,” she wrote, according to the autopsy report obtained by the Daily News. “I’m sorry you felt I wasn’t there for you. I tried to give you my best part.”
