Fatal Anniversery

Leslie CargileYou may have read about the couple found dead in a motel room in Texas. They went on a trip to celebrate their wedding anniversary. The police have decided it was suicide.  I find that more amazing than I can say. Dr Leslie Cargile was my doctor. She was intelligent, witty, compassionate, and conservative. Her husband, who worked downstairs I only met once but he seemed nice.   They had two grown sons, a 1.4 mill house on lake sunset, a lucrative practice for 25 years and no major financial problems. Two really sweet older golden retrievers also visited the upstairs office area from time to time. I worry what happened to the dogs.

The police say there was no sign of struggle and her husband died first. I am at a loss to understand this.   They left their cell phones at home- does that mean they planned this exit. They left a note for the dog watcher that they would be back on tues, knowing they would be reported missing when she did not show up for work on Monday. If I had not known this woman I would just have written the story off to another crazy couple. It leaves me with many questions but all I can do is say prayers for them, their children, all the patients left without a doctor, and their dogs. We all carry our internal struggles- be nice to one another.

  1. I’m sorry to hear this tragic story. It make you wonder what was going through their minds as they planned this exit from a world that is left in confusion. You never truly know anyone and what is on their minds. So yes I agree be kind to one another!


  2. It is really distressing. Having know her too, I just can’t wrap my mind around the event. My prayer is that the loving arms of the One are gently holding them and taking them home.
