STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Since the Christmas Day fire at her Connecticut home last year that took the lives of her three daughters and her parents, Madonna Badger wonders why she survived.
Badger, a New York advertising executive until the 2011 fire in Stamford, made it through the funerals for her children and parents. Then she fell apart, she tells the Hearst Connecticut Media Group (http://bit.ly/UsPBvi ).
Her hair turned gray and fell out in clumps. She waved a fistful of pills in the air and threatened to swallow them.
Badger traveled to Little Rock, Ark., in February to live with a friend from their college days. She says the only condition was that she promised to not commit suicide.
Investigators determined the fire was accidental. Badger said love is the legacy her children left.
