Lansing City Council-member Carol Wood reflects on her mom's murder three years ago

I've talked to and read about many who have lost loved ones to murder.  They are left with a deep pain that never goes away.  And it's a trauma that seems to be more and more common in our culture today.

Lansing City Council-member Carol Wood lost her mom Ruth Hallman to murder three years ago to a killer who has been blamed in a series of serial murders inside the city.

Her mom was regarded as an icon of compassion and love for those who needed help.  She was a difference-maker.  She and Carol were close.

This is a story worth reading and sharing.  It helps one to understand the pain and suffering left behind.

Carol opens her heart and shares how she is processing such a huge loss.
