There was a muder-suicide over the weekend on a country farm approx 20 miles from where I live. I didnt know the people there. The entire family is gone. It appears that the mother killed her boyfriend and all the kids and then herself. The mother, had 2 children with a man whom was her husband but apparently were divorced. It was her weekend apparently with those kids. She had a 3rd child, (an infant) with her boyfriend. Like I said, I dont know these people. The father, of the 2 older kids, lives eevn closer to me and as you can imagine, is devastated. I mourn for the loss of life. I mourn for the children. I mourn for the boyfriend. I mourn for the surviving father and all the surviving family members. At least 3 families have been directly touched by this event. I also mourn for the mother. For I know the pain of suidical thoughts. I know the pain of mental illness and despair. I dont know exactly what she was going thru to bring her to this point, but I mourn for her too. May all the victims rest in peace. And may God save their souls.
