  2. I am SO sorry for how awful this has to be for everyone in your mom's life, and of course you.
    If there is anything me and my gang can do for any of you please let us know.

    And let me know how she is doing. I can't imagine, and I am so thankful that she is living through this.

    My friend who's daughter was murdered said to me - and I always remember - is that you have to come up swinging, or you'll go crazy.

    That may or may not apply, but I wanted to share it. Most folks working to help victims of violence have in someway been harmed in the past.

    Your mom when she heals is a testament.

    She has been through what so many of us fear.

    Hugz... and the prayers will continue until you tell me to stop.
