    He said: ‘The last time we talked, she was in great spirits. The last time she texted, I thought she was having physical problems. 

    He said that her passing was still too raw for him to speak more personally but did say that they had made each other laugh for years and he wished they had had a few more years of laughter.    

    Other people took to Twitter in tribute of Kelly.

    Lauren Linahan of WTV Msaid: ‘My heart is heavy. Thinking of Kelly Plasker’s family, friends, and coworkers tonight.’

    Bryanna Gallagher of Fox23 provided details for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline and tweeted: ‘Heartbreaking, my thoughts & prayers are with her family during this extremely difficult time.’

    While WJHL’s Sydney Kessler said in a tweet: ‘It’s hard to lose such an amazing friend. Kelly Plasker, I’m missing you more and more every minute. You were the best co-worker, work wife & friend a girl could ask for. I love you so much and I’ll always wish I would have done more. #SuicideSucks

    KCBD ran a news report tribute to Kelly on Sunday night which described her as ‘a bright spot in our weekend mornings and in our lives’.

    Although Kelly’s cause of death has not yet been revealed, KCBD’s tribute report ended by talking about National Suicide Prevention.

    Ann Marie Casiraghi, who leads the Lubbock Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has warned: ‘This is a real time where our entire nation and even the world is under a lot of stress, never seen before. So, we’re asking that people, make connections with others.’
