A friend of mine who was in an abusive M was murdered almost 2 yrs ago.  Her H was found guilty in Aug & just had his sentencing last week.  Her story will be on Dateline this Friday night (which I love to watch because I think Keith Morrison sounds like the Grinch.  :smileylol:).

Her family wants as many people watching as possible, kind of like a candlelight vigil with tv's, and I said I'd help spread the word.

Here's more info: http://www.facebook.com/events/475597089139419/

Create, I'm sorry for your loss and I will make it a point to watch Dateline this Friday and honor your friend. I will silently stand vigil and think of you and her.

 


Much peace & Love,

Thanks!  I'm not sure how much the show will go into her life, but she was having an A and had started divorce proceedings.  I hadn't been in touch with her other than FB for a while.  I now seldom use FB & make the effort to phone or meet my friends in person!

I'm so sorry I just saw this, I don't have Dateline where I am but I will watch it online. I had a family member murdered by her H over 11 years ago, it pained me reading this post. Sending my condolences to the family members and friends as yourself, and my prayers to a soul that was prematurely taken.

I'm so sorry tiramisu.  I can't imagine what you went through.  I've known Steph's family for over 20 years, and the effect even with their relationships to each other has been tragic.  They've started a cause to support victims of domestic violence, and I'm so proud of Ramona (she'll be on the show) for turning this into something positive.  Her strength through this keeps reminding me that, no matter how bad things are, we always have choices.

It was a difficult time, he had us, and the entire country looking for her, and even tried to frame someone else for the murder. He is getting his now, and will be locked away for a very long time. She was a beautiful person inside and out, and had so much to offer the world. It is great to see Ramona taking a proactive stance out of something so tragic. This is also a reminder to us how things can turn out when strong and irrational emotions are involved. Many tragedys as such have been the outcome from ending relationships.
