Yet another wonderful friend....

The "Defense" keeps claiming Kari was depressed, sullen and didn't form deep friendships. Nice try, guys. It sure doesn't sound that way from emails I've gotten and from comments left here......oh, and knowing her personally. Another friend says:

I would just like to say that Kari was a really good friend of mine. Matt was the pastor of our church, and Kari and I got to know each other very well. We hung out all the time, and we were always with the girls. I loved Kari and Matt both dearly. Matt even married my husband and I. I have had a very very hard time with this over the last two years. I just can't get her out of my head, as hard as I try. I am torn. Matt married us, and did premaritial counseling with us. The more I read and hear, the more I wonder if he really did kill her. I don't know for a fact whether or not he did it. All I do know is that I love Kari still to this day. She was a wonderful woman with such a vibrant spirit. As much as I miss her voice and her face, I am so glad that she is now back home with her daughter whom she missed. I know that her other two girls are very strong, and even though they probably miss their mother very much, I know they will be ok. Thank you for this blog and the oppurtunity to talk to others who miss Kari as much as I do. I have thought for a long time that I am the only one who feels like this. Thank You!! I love you Kari, and you are greatly missed!!

I think I remember Kari talking about you and how much she liked you. Were you at Northlake in Dallas? Matt married my husband and me. Unlike you, I never wanted him to marry us. I already knew that he was a pervert. He had hit on two of my friends. He even hit on one friend while Kassidy was at Cook’s Hospital. I will forever regret that I didn’t come forward and tell Kari. I just didn’t know how when her child was fighting for her life. Still, I allowed Matt to marry us; I loved Kari so much that I couldn’t stand to hurt her by telling her why I didn’t want Matt to marry us. So many regrets…..I miss Kari so much.

Thank you for loving Kari. Please pray for her girls….all of you who read this and believe in the power of prayer. Kensi and Grace are our main concern now. I won’t go into specifics about how their lives have been devastated since their mother’s death. This isn’t the place. These little girls are the real victims in this horrible tragedy. The man who is raising those precious girls took their mother from them. Justice must be served.

Kari's daughters have their mother's spirit. however, they are still children. They need protection and professional help, if they are going to emerge from this tragedy whole, healthy and strong. That won't happen if MB remains free. Perhaps that is the strongest reason for justice.
