    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Very sad. Don't throw away your lives like that, life is short enough and so precious !

    I'm also wondering if maybe she didn't kill herself ? Like perhaps a murder/suicide ?

    The surname "Sexton" brings back memories of a true crime book I'd read a long time ago ; but it's probably a fairly common last name.

    And this just proves my feeling in another thread - all of humanity is at peril!! Have we bred ourselves to such a weak gene pool that people are literally damaged? OK, I am rambling...but it is just sooooo disturbing! I know this is a site that focuses on crime, but I visit other sites and see messed up crap too!

    I feel for their family and friends. They are the ones who are hurting!

    How awful. I suspect he killed her and himself. Why was this uncle even allowed around her?
