There is no easy way to say what has transpired the last few days, but I feel I should let you know what’s going on.

Two nights ago my father shot and killed my mother, then himself. (link, link, link)

My family and I are beyond grief, beyond shocked, beyond broken.  We are together and taking it one minute at a time.  We have received wonderful support from our friends and church homes and that has helped to give us strength.  We are mostly numb; mostly in shock; and overwhelmed at the task ahead of us the next few weeks.

Prayers are coveted, I will try to keep you updated as I can.
