Last night my friend Shannon (28) was over and got a call telling her to contact a police officer about her sister Kerrie (18). I knew this could not be good. I could not have imagined what was to come of it. Shannon called the officer but had to leave a message. She started to call around to relatives but none could be reached. Then she call the hospitals and found one in MD the had her there but they could not release any info & told her to get there.
Shannon just separated from her boyfriend of about 4-5 years.They have 3 kids and he has them with him about 60 miles south of here in Harrington DE. She has no car and the only way she could see her kids is if she finds rides. I have been taking her to get them since she moved up here with her mom. I knew how it hurts not to have a ride and she was getting depressed trying to find rides. She was in a great mood latley and talking about getting her life back together to get her kids more often.
Back to the "call", well, I can bot bring myself to write more about it so click the link to find out what you may already suspect happened: http://www.delawareonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20051103/NEWS/511030353/1006
She is not doing well at all now and I have to get her to seek someone to talk to. I called her relations to let them know that she need them NOW and if they did not want to lose another relative they need to put the B.S aside and be a family. They did not get along because of things in the past. I wish I could absorb some of her pain. I could handle it better than her right now, but I know this is not possible. I can only be there to help her in any that is possible. If anyone want to give her some words of support or how you dealt with similar incidents I will print them out and give them to her.
