I, like many others, find it hard to believe Gatti would kill himself. Suicide is the ultimate form of quitting, and the Gatti we knew would never quit. The thing is though, we knew Gatti as a fighter, but how many of us can say we actually knew him as a person?
An old acquaintance of mine died last week. He stepped in front of a train. No one wants to believe he did it on purpose either. But the engineer said he blared his horn while the man stood there in the middle of the tracks, not moving at all, just staring straight ahead. A lot of questions left unanswered...but obviously he was troubled and maybe there were signs no one noticed.
With Gatti, we really don't know what inner demons he may have had. All I feel like saying now though is rest in peace, Arturo. You will be missed.
