David Spade's Tribute To His Sister-In-Law Kate Spade - Amy Brooks

I admit, I had no idea David Spade was of the same Spade family as designer Kate Spade. Seems simple enough, hell they have the same last name!  The now late Kate Spade married comedian David Spade's brother Andy and like almost all who are left behind say after a person they love takes their own life, "she was so bright and funny" or "he was so warm and friendly" or one of my favorites "she lit up a room"... how can someone who is so outwardly wonderful be so inwardly tortured? It is a looong standing conundrum to me and I know I'm not alone.  Hard to identify with but can certainly easy to deeply empathize with.

David Spade posted some photos Tuesday of his sister in law that gave us a cool glimpse of her sweet way as he explained:

“We had so much fun that day. She was so sharp and quick on her feet. She could make me laugh so hard.”

Fuzzy picture but i love it. Kate and I during Christmas family photos. We had so much fun that day. She was so sharp and quick on her feet. She could make me laugh so hard. I still cant believe it. Its a rough world out there people, try to hang on.

On Twitter, Spade shared a photo of his sister-in-law (calling her "Katy") at his book-signing. He praised her beauty and sense of humor, and repeated the advice from his Instagram photo. “It’s a rough world out there people,” he wrote. “Try to hang on.”
