My daughter was killed by a drunk driver when she was 19. It has been 15 years since she passed and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her. The tears are infrequent but they are still here especially on her birthday or the anniversary of her death, even reading about her friends who have gotten married or have babies... wondering what it would be like being a grannie by now. She was my only child. I can understand your friends feelings and I am glad she has a friend like you. When my daughter was killed my friends just didn't know how to act or what to say around me so i did not hear from them.
I forgave my daughters killer as I sat in the ER holding her hand that was turning cold after she lost her life. I even prayed for her killer then and there and I think no matter what the circumstances we should say a prayer for everyone involved in this case, The lawyers both sides, the judge, the jury, the Anthonys, all those called as witnesses and even say a prayer for Casey and the long road she has ahead of her. Pray that God forgives her for what she may have done to her little one and Pray for the Anthonys. No grandparents should lose a grandchild. I know it will be hard for a lot of us to forgive Casey for what she may have done to her daughter. None of us want to see any child harmed. In the end when this trial is all over we will go on about our business after a while and will forget all about The Anthonys and Casey unless they come up in the news again.
Forgiveness is the key to a peaceful heart no matter how angry we are that this precious Child Caylee may have lost her life at the hands of her mother. There is nothing we can do to bring her back but we can prevent this from happening to other children . If Cindy Anthony had been more observant and acted on Caseys behavioral problems perhaps Caylee would have still been alive.
