How is it that a stable person (for their whole life) suddenly up and commit suicide?

In brief: It can happen

It is almost impossible to know the soul of another person unless they choose to share it.
What we see and hear from others is just a small portion of who they are, a video clip and not the whole movie. It is tragic & occurs seemingly without warning. The other half of a story like this is that life changes and even the strongest of us can fall into suicidal depression. Be vigilant for signs.
