[PA] Mom: "Happy 4th anniversary in heaven dear Carli"

Happy 4th anniversary in heaven dear Carli. 

I love you and miss you so much and wait for the day when I will see you again. 
"A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam 
And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world 
But then it flies again 
And though we wish it could have stayed... 
We feel lucky to have seen it." 

Path of heartbreak:

    as someone who recently lost her sister to a similiar situation I would like to expres my condolences.

    My deepest condolences to Carli's family.Many will not forget her.I for one think of her quite a bit.Her untimely death is a stark reminder to us all of her and the others who died needlessly at the hands of their police officer husbands.So much more awareness of this problem and accountability from their abusers needs to be addressed .If even ONE tragedy can be stopped,it would be well worth it.My prayers go to Carli's family and all the other families out there that are devastated by Officer Involved Domestic Violence.Keep the fire in your hearts burning to work together to stop these senseless tragedies from happening.

  3. I think about Carli often and remember sharing laughs with her in English Class, senior year. She is free of her abuser, but will certainly be missed. I hope he rots in hell for what he did.

    "Update on our case...Jeffrey Dennis was denied another appeal today!!!"

    In Loving Memory Of
    Carli Anne Bitterman
    Given By God ~ January 4, 1976
    Returned to God ~ February 27, 2006

    You never said "I'm leaving"
    You never said goodbye
    You were gone before I knew it,
    And only God knew why.
    A million times I needed you,
    A million times I cried;
    If Love alone could have saved you,
    You never would have died.
    In Life I loved you dearly,
    In death I love you still,
    In my heart you hold a place,
    That no one could ever fill.
    It broke my heart to lose you,
    But you didn't go alone
    For part of me went with you,
    The day God took you home.

    I Love and Miss You,
