I hope that the Kimmi family knows that we are all sitting here awaiting word on the happenings occurring in that courtroom. I know that many of us would prefer to be there in person to offer our support to this most gracious of families.
I never had the honor of knowing anyone personally involved in this sad and incredibly tragic case, but I feel as though I know Pat and her children. Pat's personality and values have been shared here through the love and respect shown by her children.
I have been in tears for most of the morning as each little tidbit of information is made public from the courtroom. No family should ever have to endure the horror, the sadness, the pain, the indignities that were thrust upon the Kimmis by these evil monsters.
It is my fervent hope that when this trial concludes (with a guilty verdict, I pray), that another trial for the other party involved in this case will soon be on the horizon. The main player in this tragedy needs to be brought to justice, and with a vengeance, as he is, in my opinion, the most evil of all evil.
May God bless you, Kimmi children and extended family, as you sit through what must be a terribly difficult trial for you to witness. Stay strong, as I know you will.
My thoughts and prayers are with each of you.
