Birthdays, Death Anniversary, and Christmas Are The Hardest
Belinda asked me to write something for the blog about yesterday, Mike's Birthday. We went out to his grave and took some flowers. Some one already put a beautiful Christmas arrangement on his resting site, complete with a horse and saddle. Mike was a cowboy, heart and soul, and every one that knew him, knew that.
I can remember when I first started working with Belinda,over two years ago.
Everything seemed so simple. It has been over 4 years since Mike was murdered now and I have watched his family take each set back in his case with a grim smile, knowing each time that they would not give up. But with each passing year, it gets harder and harder. For Belinda and Shirley(Mikes Mom) it was always "When they catch Mike's killer." Now they say "If they catch him" If. The passing of time is very discouraging.
I know many of the other families are visiting the graves of their loved one this Christmas. Some have waited over 30 years for justice. 30 years.
Please remember all of our families in your prayers. For some of them, the only justice they can count on is from God, as the murderers of their loved loved ones stand in judgement before Him.
