My heart is broken. Thursday night, I found out that my sweet cousin, Lisa was shot and killed by her husband. Her daughter was also shot and will fully recover. They were shot by their husband and father, who is a very prominent minister.  After he shot them he stabbed himself. He will survive and face criminal charges. I am stunned at how a good person can do something like this. The husband recently suffered a heart mishap and two accidents. I'm sure the injuries and the meds caused him to be unhinged. I wonder if we will ever know what caused him to act so violently.

Lisa was one of the sweetest people that I know. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. She was always calm and tried to keep everyone else calm.  She would always forgive and forget. I hate that her death has made the national media and has caused horrible comments from people who do not even know her.

Please keep her daughter, Suzzanna, and all of their friends and family in your prayers.  Maybe one day we will learn answers to questions.
