“It doesn’t stay dark forever”: The impact and effects of suicide

Using her blog as an outlet for her emotions and distraught, Zoë Colegrove of Buena High School documented her life for several months. On Oct. 11, 2015, Colegrove completed suicide. As she entered respiratory arrest, she was airlifted to the Community Memorial Hospital. While her father Daniel Colegrove sat by her hospital bed, her heart ceased beating and the doctor pronounced her at 10 p.m. She was laid to rest at Ivy Lawn Memorial Park.
