You read about people killing themselves and their kids in the news but you never think it will affect you.
The other day I was shocked to read in the Gleaner that my cousin Carol did just that. To say I was astonished and very saddened is an understatement. She lived with us for about a year when I was a teenager. We didn't keep in touch after that so I don't claim to have known her well but from what I remember she was a pretty, quiet, shy girl.
I can imagine feeling terrible because your husband has betrayed you but what I can't get my head around is why kill the kids?
It's a terrible tragedy and my heart goes out to her parents.
