IN LOVING MEMORY OF
COLETTE, KIMBERLEY AND KRISTEN
It seems impossible that it has been 47 years since the lives of Colette, Kimberley and Kristen
were stolen from us.
Their murders were such a waste.
Colette fought like a hero to the end trying to save the lives of her precious babies,
Kimberley, Kristen and the baby boy waiting to be born.
There is still that sudden horror of when we were notified and the wrenching pain of
being torn apart. A pain of grief hardly to be endured
will forever remain fresh in our minds.
Our hearts ache over our loss, the empty chairs at the table on the holidays the missed
birthdays, the graduations and the new members that would have been added to our family.
Our hearts ache for the pain and suffering Colette, Kimberley and Kristen suffered the night of
their murders. The last thing they saw was the face of the one who was supposed to love and
protect them was the very one who was killing them. Our hearts ache for the unborn son that
we never got to see or know.
Our heart aches that they are no longer here with us today, but their presence is felt
with memories that live on. Those whom we have loved never really leave us.
Colette, Kimberley, Kristen and the unborn baby boy live on in our
hearts and cast their radiant light on our every shadow.
In our hearts your memory lingers,
sweetly tender, fond and true.
There is not a day,
dear Colette, Kimberley and Kristen,
that we do not think of you.
If we could have one lifetime wish
and one dream that would come true.
We would pray to God with all our hearts,
just to see and speak to you.
But a thousand words won't bring you back,
we know because we've tried.
And neither will a million tears,
we know because we've cried.
You left behind our broken hearts,
and precious memories too.
But we never wanted memories,
we only wanted you.
If roes grow in heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for us.
Place them in Colette, Kimberley and Kristen's arms,
and tell them they're from us.
Tell them we love them,
and when they turn to smile,
place a kiss upon their cheeks,
and hold them for a while.
Remembering them is easy,
we do it everyday.
But the ache within hearts,
will never go away.
We pray for those who trusted too much and for those who still do --
For those who are in a domestic violence situation, PLEASE, we pray you
will seek help before it's too late.
Remember the abuser is clever when around others in exhibiting a veneer
of good over evil, but just below is the devil in disguise.
Our sincere thanks to those who continue to contact us and for their support. Because of that
support, we are able to provide two scholarships this year in memory of Colette, Kimberley
As we wait once again for the court's decision, please keep us in your thoughts and prays
that the murders will continue to remain in prison.
God Bless You All
