Today is a sad day - what does a person do-what do they say- when they find out that the daughter of a friend has been kidnapped and brutally murdered while the family lay sleeping? Today they will bury my friends 8 year old daughter who was killed almost two weeks ago by a "family friend". The details are not clear as this happened overseas and it's been difficult to contact the family. I haven't seen my friend in almost 20 years - but that doesn't make it any less painful or any less real. Who would have thought so many years ago when we were all so young and life was so worth living that something like this would happen to one of us?
My heart goes out to you my friend and to your family. May your daughter Rest In Peace and the the accused be brought to justice - and that your family may learn to live again.
