One of my favorite divorce clients was murdered by her husband this past Friday morning. This was especially upsetting because I had just spoken to her Thursday evening and she was concerned about her children because she was working so much (due to their father’s lack of support and defiance) and she couldn’t spend enough time with them. Their father didn’t want to have anything to do with them after she filed for divorce last year. She told me, "I feel like my children have lost both parents because I have to work 16 to 17 hours a day, 7 days a week".
Ann was 18 when she met her husband, 27 years her senior. She fell in love and had 4 wonderful children with him.
Ann was the type of woman who spend quality time with her children, taking them on cross-country adventures and making sure they pursued their talents. She loved her children with everything she had. She spoke proudly of each of them.
The coward that shot her in the face 5 times could not take away her beauty. As she lied there in the casket, the beauty that always radiated within her still shown on her face.
Ann would have been proud to she her children last night at the wake. They were strong, they were confident and they greeted the thousands of visitors with hugs and gratiousness.
A job well done Ann.
