More proof that no man is an island.....

Kim is another friend of Kari's and fellow teacher from Spring Valley at the time Kari was there. I noticed she recently posted on her blog about last week being the 2 year anniversary of Kari's death. She also commented here about being at the cemetery at the very time that I was there looking for Kari and just as Kari's parents were leaving....and all of us just missing each other.

With permission, I am sharing part of her blog posting here:

"Last week marked the 2 year anniversary of the death of my good friend Kari. In fact, it was Tuesday, the day of the math TAKS test so I had alot of time on my hands to recount every minute of my day when the calling tree was enacted. It is amazing that I remember the events of that day like it was yesterday but I scarcely recall yesterday. I remember being so upset and shocked that she was gone, that I couldn't make the next phone call. I had to tell the teacher who called me to make my call. The events that followed are now national news so there is no need to recount......

Moving on....after everything and the roller coaster of emotions relating to the events of Kari's death, I have come to the point where I think can move on. So much so that I purchased a new Bible to replace the one I can't find. Jamie and I are going to dinner with the pastor and his wife of the church where we are members. Maybe by summer, we will be back at church."


The actions of that day touched more people than Matt could ever realize. Countless people knew and loved Kari. Countless people grieved so hard that it was difficult to move sometimes in the following days. Countless people still miss Kari. And countless, countless, countless people know Kari and know that she did not take her own life. And soon the remaining few that are hell bent on Matt's innocence will know the truth as well. And I pray for everyone involved. Prayers for strength for Kari's family to keep on keeping on and prayers for Matt's family when it's time to face the truth.

So many of the people who loved Kari have surrounded Jim and me with that same love. Kim has become a dear friend in my life. God has shown me His love through all of the wonderful people He has brought into my life.

I will be praying that the "time is coming when everything will be revealed; all that is secret will be made public" and that "whatever [matt has] said in the dark will be heard in the light, and that what [matt has] whispered behind closed doors will be shouted from the housetops for all to hear!". (Luke 12:2-3)
