Andy Spade remembered late wife Kate with a moving tribute.
“She was born Christmas Eve, 1962. She loved the Midwest, the desert, and the city,” Andy, 55, wrote on Instagram late Monday. “I was lucky enough to have dear friends let my daughter and [me] stay at their home through a difficult time. This tree was standing alone beside the house so we ordered those multicolored, old-fashioned lights from Amazon or Target and another dear personal friend gave me a really long extension cord and Bea and I cut a star out of the cardboard box the lights came on and wrapped it in Reynolds wrap (TM) like we do every Christmas.”
It was Andy’s first social media post since Kate’s suicide at 55 in June.
Andy and Kate were reportedly separated at the time of her death, but Andy denied that the couple were considering divorce.
“Kate was the most beautiful woman in the world. She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend for 35 years,” he said in a statement in the days following her passing. “My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can’t even begin to fathom life without her. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already.”
“Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives. We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy,” the statement continued. “There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. It was a complete shock. And it clearly wasn’t her. There were personal demons she was battling.”
Kate was laid to rest on June 21.
