I can go on brokenhearted and try to put the pieces back. I could, I just don't have the will this time," she wrote. "Please forgive me. I'm just not for this world."
"Cathriona was a shining light in our lives who was loved deeply by her entire family," her family said in an emotional statement following her death (opens in new tab). White sent this heartbreaking final tweet:
Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest. ✌🏼️❤️ to yo allSeptember 24, 2015
