Well dear Wendy, I thought I was having a rough patch today, but as I read about the tragedy you and Lisa, have experienced.....I have been humbled...and healing is such a long road, with so many bumps in our path, I want you to know, I thought I was in the deepest hole...I lost two uncles, a mom, and a cousin my age 54 within 4 months, as life would have it, there is another story that is so tragic....senseless, yet who do you believe or trust anymore, I hope you keep in touch with all of the rookies of the group, and teach us some of the life lessons that seemed to "ease" your pain for a moment, or how you got the strength or restraint...to not totally loose it...I am not sure two jackets would of given me the courage to see how the insanity plea, is exactly what is making you walk and witness this cruel injustice. I wish you peace, and know that your mom is in a better place, I surely would not want her under the same roof as this individual who took your mothers life....Be safe and stay in touch, Belinda
hi wendy...i sorry for your loss...i can very much relate to you..i lost my mother in pretty much same manner..my brother n law shot her in the back of the head several times..and we believe she didnt even see him...like a coward he came up from behind her...i to have alot of anger towards him..and i never got to say good by to my mother either..she was 72 years old still had alot of life to live..miss her great deal..
thank you Sally & Cathy for sharing your compassion. I was advised by my grief counselor to find an outlet for my anger at my stepfather for murdering my mom. I did - I shredded one of his leather jackets, actually 2. It made me feel so good while I was doing this, but still empty and sad afterwards. I have been labelled as "hostile" by the authorities because I was honest about what I did (killing his jacket) and saying I would not rest until he is dead. He has been placed in the criminally insane state facility as he is claiming he is incompetent to stand trial. Yeah he's crazy - like a fox. The anger stays on a roller coaster which I would like to get off, but cannot. I am looking for a grief group for people that their loved ones were taken from us quickly and vilently. I am trying so hard to better and not bitter, but it is truely a challenge
