hard service

We are back from the cruise, and the wedding was fantastic. The cruise was amazing, and we are sad we have to be back. Why can't vacation last forever? Ellie flew in from San Diego and we even went home this weekend to visit Nannie and Pops with all the kids. HAD A BLAST. We hurried home so Katey could make confirmation class and youth service.

Tonight's service was difficult to say the least.
It was about Jesus dying on the cross and Pilates wife told him not to mess with that innocent man for she had had a dream about him. Well we were questioned had we ever stepped up and questioned something and spoken up even though nobody else was. He asked if we heard recently about a violent death, or some one being mistreated at school. Immediately Katey and I think of Adrianne.

He went on to ask some very hard questions.
Was there something you could have done? Something you could have said? Could you have done something that could have prevented this? The questions went on and on. Each one questions and guilt that I have asked myself many many times. Katey bowed her head and cried, and I walked out. I got control and came back in, but it was very hard.

When it was over and everyone walked out, we said in the pews and Katey and I just cried. We miss you Adrianne Leigh.

I just saw the E Documentary on your Cousin's murder. My heart goes out to you and yours - your blog comes up in a search for the monster they released in 2008. (Who should never have been released.) With many prayers.
