Please help...

I know most of you who read this may have all ready received an email from me... If not you may have read my posts earlier in the week about my BF's sister... Or, maybe you've come because of a blog train post, and are a complete stranger... In any of those cases I urge you to send any positive thoughts/prayers to Kandie and her family. Teresia has moved into the dangerous stage of infection. She was burned so badly that she has no ears, lips, or eyebrows left, and only has a few small patches of skin.

For those who don't know the story it can be found here:
Man burns wife, takes own life in Monroe County

I know how great the digi community can be, and while I myself am not religious I do believe in the power of positive thinking in ANY form. Teresia has 3 children- 14, 11, and 9. Kam is taking care of them during this trying time so I know she's trying to be strong for all of them. Just knowing there are people out there - strangers or not - thinking about them and wishing them well will help her pull through this. I realized yesterday when I tried clicking one of the MySpace links I left earlier in the week that you wouldn't be able to see them as she has her profile set to private, but you can leave comments on her Blogger blog. It looks sparce as she set it up while talking to me in Sept and didn't go back, but I can let her know to check it. Please if you have a few extra moments stop here to leave her some good thoughts.

I'm tearing up as I type this because I'm far enough away that I can't give her a hug, or let her cry on my shoulder. What I can do is spread the word, and ask for the kindness I know you all have to be shared with her. Also, please share this with as many of your friends and family as you are comfortable doing so with. The family didn't think him capable of something like this -they thought he loved her enough not to. Domestic violence has no boundaries - love or lack of it is not the issue.

Hon, I'm sorry to hear the news isn't good. There are never the right words to say to you or them right now. I wish for you the strength to continue to be strong for your friend and hope to help ease the pain. I sent your email on to my family as I know that she can never have too many prayers. You ALL are in my thoughts. Take care of you too!

The power of prayer should never be underestimated! Miracles do happen. I urge you and your friend to lift all these troubles to Christ and let him shoulder this burden.

How awful. I"m so sorry to hear the news. I also agree that every prayer helps.

There was a similar incident in our community recently, only the entire family died with the exception of the father, who did it. So tragic and wrong.

Barb said...

Oh my gosh, I just realized that this took place in Lasalle Michigan. I grew up in Monroe, literally five miles away from where the crime took place.

Sigh. Again, I"m so sorry.

I'm sorry to hear all that, but my thoughts are with you. I wish you and all of her friends and family the strength to get thru the whole thing. I think knowing that she has friends that care so much about her will help your friend to get better!
I came with the DSO Train, BTW

My thoughts and prays are with your friend and her children. My concern goes through out our country as I also lost an entire family of friends who I'm loved due to horror circumstances.
