    Arrow Thanks to Kelly

    Dear Kelly,

    Because of you many more people will remember all of the missing.

    It is my opinion that you have a God given talent for writing. He will surely bless you for using it to help others.


    I usually cry when reading your stories of the missing. Your touching presentation of Maura caused me to cry a river.

    I'm not sure if thank you is the appropriate response to making someone cry. I will, however, thank you for being a person who cares about the missing.

    I suppose I could look at it from the standpoint that if someone cries over a person they do not even know, then my work on the blog is effective.

    We need more angels like you!

    Many blessings,
    Kelly

    Kelly, Your work on the blog is definitely affictive...thank you so much for your perspective on Maura. And, the fact is, your work always seems to be affective. I can only hope that you have a small idea of how much what you do is appreciated.

    Kelly, your pain come through in your writing...but the fact you are able to overcome and help makes all of us cry... Your devotion and your love for all the families of the missing keeps many going through the worst of it... They can look to you and say "She knows our pain" She really cares" that is what makes your writing so moving... I feel blessed to know you, and to read your blog, your website , and to have spoken to you... God Bless You and may Jason be home with you again very soon.....

    It is common for a family with a missing loved one to make public statements of hope. No one knows for sure, in most cases, if their loved one is dead or alive. I have made many such public statements in case my son could read what I said, such as: "No matter what, we forgive you. We just want you to come home."

    Does that mean that there is neccesarily something to forgive, some hidden secret act? No, it is simply a statement made to cover the bases. It is also normal for families of the missing to feel guilt and question anything they may have said or done to cause the loved one's disappearance. This guilt is typically present regardless of the type of disappearance.

    "Big Bill" refers to Sharon's husband, Bill, in the story on my blog. Maura's fiancee is always referred to as "Billy".

    This is just a friendly reminder that this is the support forum, rather than the discussion forum. The types of postings seen here in the past 24 hours should go on the Missing Discussion Forum. This forum is to be a "safe haven" for families of the missing, where if they should be reading, they do not see themselves or their missing loved ones torn about or written about as if they were just a theory. It is hurtful to those left behind. It's painful enough as it is without seeing those postings. If you need this clarified, I'm sure a moderator would be happy to do that. Most posters write in a respectful manner, but some do not. Thank you.

    I apologize to you as I think I misunderstood the actual purpose of this thread even though it is labeled correctly. I thought that support might also mean discussing information to help find the missing as well as just being a comforting source. Edited to add:I think the title "Missing persons Information and Support" is what threw me.
    I have seen similar style conversations in support threads but that is no real excuse. My mistake.

    Hi Doc,

    No need to apologize, really. I can't speak for members of the Murray family in regards to their feelings about case discussion on this thread, but I can speak for many other families who are hurt and appalled at what they see written about about missing persons and their families on posting boards. (not just their own)

    If this particular board is to be a safe haven for families to read and not see any material that they may be sensitive to, then it needs to remain as such. Moderators, please correct me if I am wrong.

    I don't recall seeing anything disrespectful in your posts. Thank you for that.

    Kelly

    thank you for pointing this out Kelly... my temper gets the better of me when I read things that disrespect the missing and their families and friends.... therefore I usually back out of the forum.... Tact is not one of my strong points.

    There but by GOD's Grace go I... my son could have gone or could go missing, or my grandson, my nephew, my brother..... I love you and admire you so much, but I hope I never have to walk in your shoes....

    Prayers to you, your family, and all the families of the the missing, and especially heartfelt prayers for those who are missing... Your family wants you home...they love you, Please if you are able, come home or at the very least let them know you are alive and safe.

    God Bless YOU ALL.

    Thanks!

    As soon as I read Kelly's comment, I had been wondering if this was possible.

    ...........hopefully we will be able to keep the discussion in the proper thread. Since I follow this case so closely, I will do my best to remind everyone where the discussion belongs :-)
