By her ex-boyfriend, who then committed suicide. She leaves three children under the age of four, who will probably be living with my aunt.

Lord have mercy on your cousin, on her killer, and on the children!  And may He strengthen those who are charged with providing stability and guidance and love for the children.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;

Tonight my wife cried herself to sleep because tomorrow marks the 11th anniversary of the Thurston High School shootings.  She was a freshmen there when it happened.  The boy/shooter was her best friend.  She was crying tonight because he killed his parents the night before he went to school and shot everyone he could.

This was 11 years ago, and she still cries every night before the shooting… and for several days she feels unsafe in public because she is constantly afraid someone is going to violently murder her.


+Lord have mercy on all involved in this similar tragedy… this will affect them the rest of their lives.
