In an e-mail exchange with The Kansas City Star, Reta Saffo, one of the designer's five siblings, said family members "struggled mightily" to get Kate Spade the help she needed but to no avail. She was the kindest person I've ever known and my best friend for 35 years.

"She had a light that words can't capture but touched everyone she came into contact with", Brosnahan wrote on Instagram. "Kate really removed herself from society, from NY, from the fashion world, and she really just focused, I think, on being a mom".

"I still cant believe it (sic)", he continued. It's a rough world out there, people. "Thank you, Kate, from one of the millions you made feel handsome". Andrew Spade was not in the apartment at the time his wife's body was discovered but arrived later with other family friends, said the source. There was a moment when you couldn't walk a block in NY without seeing one of her bags, which were just like her; colorful and unpretentious. "She was also a staple of NYC who spread good will. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already", he said.
