    A Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) officer discovered a suicide note, next to a black garbage bag filled with clothes, vodka and a can of Coca-Cola, which read:

    “Two great people are going to paradise… everything will be good.” 

    The couple, who left behind a 2-year-old daughter, were allegedly distraught the O’Neal’s mother forbade Smallwood to enter their home after he became involved in illegal activities.

    According to the New York Post, O’Neal’s mother did not like Smallwood at all.

    “Her mom didn’t want the boyfriend living with all of them,” said her landlord, Kinsley Senio. “She didn’t like him.”

    The two were arrested earlier this month for allegedly stealing jewelry from a Jamaica, Queens store. A neighbor said they both dyed their hair red recently.

    Terri Simmons, who lives directly across from the station, said she had never seen Smallwood before, but often saw O’Neal moping around the area.

    She would spend hours sitting on a urine-soaked stairway leading to the railroad platform.

    Simmons, 50, said she approached the young woman several times to ask if she was all right, but she never even raised her head.

    At around 10:15 p.m. Monday, Simmons heard a “boom” from the bodies’ impact with the Manhattan-bound express train, and ran to the station.

    1. My heart and prayers goes out to both families. Parents at some point we really need to stay out of our kids lives and allow them to adjust to adulthood, regardless how we feel about their selected mates and friends. Remember, we were once their age and probably felt the same these two young adults felt. May God bless both of them and comfort their families at this time.
