I can't keep my thoughts off of it. It's such a horrible story.
A friend of mine buried her husband yesterday.
Her name is Heather, his name is Sean. They're both 23 years old with two small children.
I first met Heather in North Carolina when I interviewed her to work for me. I've never met Sean.
Sean was murdered, shot in the head, by a friend that Heather and Sean have known since High School.
It's all over the news, a media circus, and promises to be for some time as the murderer (he called 911 after he did it and waited outside for them to show up), has hired the former U.S. Attorney to defend him (apparently his grandfather has connections).
Everyone has questions, no one has answers.
But there Heather is, going through this. My heart breaks for her. She is so young, appears meek and quiet to the eye, but even before this tragedy, she has struck me as a very strong and capable girl.
If you think of them, please pray for Heather and the two children she is now raising (Matthew and Kaylie).
