My friend is gone

Well we got some heartbreaking news today. Dot has been found and it wasn't good. It's been on the news and if you live in Texas, you have probably heard the story also. It appears her daughter murdered her and drove her to Texas in a box and buried Dot in her back yard. I cried this afternoon because she didn't deserve to be treated like this especially from a daughter she let move in with her to help her get back on her feet. Life is so cruel and it makes me wander what drives people to this sort of thing. It's not in my world of thinking and I do know that it can happen to any family. Al's brother was one of them---killed by his own son and buried in a hole in the backyard and only served 8 years for his crime.

Dot's mom is not in good health, so please pray for her. Love and Hugs, Pat
