It was six months ago today that Mom & Dad were killed in their own home. It still feels like a very bad dream. I keep thinking I'll wake up and everything will be okay. Yesterday I drove to Aunt Sis and Uncle Virgil's house. I then rode with them to Springfield, MO.
There we met my brother, Dave, and cousin, Cindy at Sheriff Arnott's office. We talked with the sheriff and 2 of the detectives working on Mom & Dad's case. It was very comforting to see how hard they are working to bring closure for us. The case has become personal to them. They all have pictures of Mom & Dad hanging on their office walls. You should see the stacks of DVD's of interviews not to mention audio interviews, many large binders full of reports and descriptions of the over 500 pieces of evidence!
I feel certain they will bring the killer(s) to justice. Please keep these dedicated officers in your prayers! They are giving so much of their time, expertise, and energy.
Today, we met with reporters. The support of the media has been overwhelming! We really appreciate all that they are doing on behalf of Mom & Dad. The fact that they are keeping this in front of the public really makes a difference.
I felt much better driving home tonight than I did when I left yesterday morning. I don't feel so alone in this journey.
Psalm 9:9-12 (The Message)
God's a safe-house for the battered,
a sanctuary during bad times.
The moment you arrive, you relax;
you're never sorry you knocked.
Sing your songs to Zion-dwelling God,
tell his stories to everyone you meet:
How he tracks down killers
yet keeps his eye on us,
registers every whimper and moan.
