Funerals for Amish Girls
Honest to God I feel like I am just going to cry- often, over this.
Sisters? Oh that poor family Such little girls......All roads leading into the village of Nickel Mines, the site of the shooting, were blocked off so the Amish could gather quietly in three homes for funerals of Naomi Rose Ebersole, 7; Marian Fisher, 13; Mary Liz Miller, 8; and her sister Lena Miller, 7. The funeral for a fifth girl, Anna Mae Stoltzfus, 12, is scheduled for Friday
6 years old That's my Rosie.The country coroner, G. Gary Kirchner, said he was contacted Tuesday by a doctor at Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey who said doctors were planning to take one victim off life support so that she could be brought home. He said he was told Dr. D. Holmes Morton, who runs a clinic that serves Amish children, would be the clinician in charge.
Morton said Thursday that published reports that a 6-year-old had been taken off life-support and taken home to die were accurate "as far as I know."
all I can think of is what those poor little girls went through- the fear and the horror and the tears.....I want to go home and wrap my arms around my beautiful daughter and just love her.
It's unbearable. This is just too much.......
I have to say though- if you read the article and see the forgiveness these people practice and their attitude towards the widow and children of the maniac who killed these girls....it's downright humbling. I could not do the same.
