A warm November morning with leaves blowing about the front yard with light dew scattered atop everything. Once the dogs are back inside, the tea has finished steeping, and I decide to check my mail and post today’s blog. I receive blog updates from a few different blogs – an agent, authors, writers, and those dealing with missing children cases.
One of these blogs is written by Karen Beaudin. Her sister, Kathy Lynn Gloddy was kidnapped, raped and brutally murdered forty years ago today. As I read today’s post my heart ached for her and the family. Some might say, “Time heals all wounds” yet the loss of your sibling is heartbreaking and I anticipate I will miss Heidi as much in forty years as Karen misses Kathy today.
Karen has written a book, A Child is Missing from the sister’s perspective about her sister’s murder. She shares the heartbreak and loss experienced by herself and her family. Karen writes and speaks to advocate for the voices muffled by kidnapping and murder.
I encourage you to read Karen’s blog posting in remembrance of her sister Kathy today. Karen strives for positive change in our crime investigation while also lifting up the spirits of the families affected by kidnapping and murder through her inspirational speaking.
Will you join me in prayer for Karen Beaudin and her family today?
"Today marks forty years since Kathy was murdered and the case remains unsolved. I miss her and just want her back.
While my sister’s remains lay in the ground for forty years the murderer continues to walk free. He’s had birthdays, enjoyed life, family, friends, and luxuries. Kathy never had the opportunity to take pleasure in any of these things and we were denied the joy of seeing her do so..."
