Update July 15/2014
Numb. It is with great sadness and despair that I post the following:
Douglas Garland charged with three counts of murder in deaths of Nathan O'Brien, grandparents-http://www.calgaryherald.com/news/calgary/Murder+charges+pending+case+missing+Nathan+Brien+Alvin/10030409/story.html
I am so distraught, I have no words. I am praying deeply for Nathan's parents and all of the family, I have no words other than RIP little cherub. At least you are safe in heaven with your grandparents. This is little comfort I am sure to a family devastated and wracked with grief.
May the world reach out and wrap their arms around them and send them virtural hugs, love and compassion to help them to survive this tragedy.
this blog post says it well.
