Sad Days

For those of you who have not heard, my Aunt and my cousin were murdered at my Aunt's farm by my Aunt's husband. We are, of course, reeling from this staggering loss.

Those of you who knew them know that they were good people who never did anyone a bad turn in their lives. We will miss them both very much. They both worked in law enforcement and their departments have been wonderful in their support for our family.

They were also animal lovers. The list of animals we had to find homes for was quite large, but my cousin's friend appears to have suceeded finding homes for the smaller animals and my Dad found homes for the livestock.

We adopted one of my Aunt's Duchshunds, Roxie Boxie the Doxie. Roxie was found at the farm guarding my Aunt's body as a brave little sentinel. She has now joined our home and appears to be quite happy here and we are very happy to have her.

NOTE: I omit names at my Mother's request to not have this further discussed in the media.
