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.
