Get A LIFE Everyboday!!! move on.....
UNFORTUNATELY~~~the life of an AMAZING woman was taken, kind of hard to 'just get a life, and move on.' It's NOT that easy, IF IT WAS MURDER WOULD BE LEGAL!!!!(You know~~ like deer hunting!) Perhaps what shall happen, is people will end up 'dealing' with it and eventually they will be forced to move forward. However, until we're ALL able to learn how to do so, it's only EXPECTED that people will express themselves over such a TRAGIC OCCURANCE! How about YOU make a choice to move on to a different site and leave this one to those who give a damn!

I'm simply saying that if YOU don't like the fact that it's GOING TO TAKE TIME for people to get "get over it and get a life" then WHY would you WANT to come here and read the posts? It's FINE if you'd like to, it's even FINE if you feel the urge to TELL us how to feel, however...it's NOT okay to pretend like the lives lost meant NOTHING to those that they TRULY did matter to. I loved Kecia, spent alot of years with her, got to grow up with her, went through some of her world with her, saw what she had to offer the world, and ALSO had to attend her funeral due to someone else TAKING her life....so I guess EXCUSE ME for giving a damn about someone who WAS able to touch people. Please feel free to TELL me how wrong I am, how I should be over it....after all it's been over a month now, how the family will just have to 'get over it,' and ALL we are doing is 'bashing' the Skiba name....seems to be what I've read throughout the forum. I do however, plan to KEEP talking about Kecia, this occurance--AFTER ALL IT'S MURDER--in our small town, and I have NO INTENTIONS of being silenced--thus leading to Kecias' death being for NOTHING!

Sorry, Kiwi...my post was in reference to the buttwipe that keeps telling us to move on and get a life. I thought I replied and quoted that person. I'm on your side...if that's what we want to call it.

Big hugs!!

It doesn't ever end for those left behind. It will get buried then periodically resurface as emotions or new information arise.
The media didn't alert the public of a killer at large. Why not?They knew...yes, it all turned out everyone else was safe BUT...what if?
You know this is so true. When my gramma died I was sad but I accepted it was her time. Not that it "ended" but I accepted and moved on with peace. Always to remember but not with sadness.
Now with Kecia's murder, it's so different, it wasn't her time, it wasn't a "natural course of nature" you can't just close the book and move on with acceptance and peace. I don't know how to "accept" this. I don't know how to find peace.

Many years ago, when my grandmother died, our minister told me...."remember her as she was, not as she is." I have held that in my heart for 34 years now and it has helped.

My mistake, I didn't see the 'reply to..' it was only showing as a comment. I appologize and am glad that it isn't SO out of the realm of normalacy to have a challenge in 'getting past this.' Thanks for the hugs.....right back at ya!

She was MURDRED...Heinous acts of crime haunt those affected forever. The pain of her loss will lessen in time but I will never forget or forgive KELBY THE MURDERER. SHE FEARED for her life, rightfully so, before he ultimately killed her as she lay helpless in bed and its a very difficult, perhaps impossible, scenario to purge from my mind.

The fact that he pulled this off leaves blood on our judicial systems hands. As well as the enablers. I will never let that fact die. They all failed Kecia.

I've seen the facebook page for the law and I have to say, it doesn't really make much sense.

The page really should be more clear about what this law is if the supporters want to actually make progress on it being a law. As the mission states, it seems to want a website or something so people can "get information about future relationships" so they are alerted to violence in their past. This is very vague and although noble, might impinge on privacy rights - this could negatively impact those people who have even a mild criminal record.

Most of all, it seems like in this case with Kecia and Kelby, she and many of you ALREADY KNEW of his violent past, therefore such a law wouldn't have had much of an impact. However, a law that would do more to enforce PPOs and do more to punish / keep behind bars those violent individuals may have saved Kecia's life - ie he would not have been released from jail that week or instead, have been given some kind of tether so that police would be alerted when he came anywhere near Kecia's house. I would be much more supportive of this type of law.

Also, the creator of this group needs to give more information of how to ACTUALLY support this law - they don't make laws based on how many friends like your page - there's a protocol that needs to be followed.

Okay...I agree but it is just the beginning. I also believe the creator should be more detailed about the whole ordeal with Kelbys past so those that aren't aware of why this is so improtant.

We all know WHY he wasn't behind bars sooner. THAT political BS needs to STOP! I know the cops were sick and tired of it too. The puke was bailed out and enabled further.

I moved away from Alpena a few years ago, and every time I think I want to move back, some big "event" happens, I visit a forum, and remember the no-so-nice aspects of small town life.

Why do you all love to argue over someone in most cases you don't even KNOW? None of us have any right to say anything either way! It doesn't involve you! Jesus, we have people calling other posters "slimmy pigs," idiots, tards, anal openings, and I only read 2 pages! And all of this hate because a sweet girl was murdered!

I love the sense of community in Alpena but I also hate how everyone feels they know everyone else and have the right to comment. Go enjoy your beautiful summer weather! Aren't there better things to do than exude hate over the internet about situations you have nothing to do with? Thought so!

They also don't like to discuss any topic in a reasonable manner and they make accusations and spread gossip and rumors without being willing to provide actual evidence.

You must have read more than 2 pages! I went through every post, and the name calling didn't start until page 4 there was one tard thrown out there, on to page 12 we have idiot, 13 we have pig, and 14 an anal opening, but that really isn't the point here, the point is as you stated it is a small town, and yes most commenting one here either know one of the 2 or know someone that knows them! And yes it involves all of us, a young lady was murdered, and it could have been stopped, had he went to jail for any one of the numerous stalking charges he had, if he had not been coddled and got out of every bit of trouble that he had ever been in ! If he had been made to face his problems, but people don't face problems until they hit rock bottom, and they never let him fall, so again I say, it is ALL OF OUR BUSINESS!!! all of us that have daughters, granddaughters, nieces or best girl friends, we all need to be aware of the signs and we all need to know that the justice system will not help us if we have a stalker, because people think it won't happen in our small town, well guess what it did happen, and it has effected us all, it has shaken us to the core and we are confused and angry, so don't tell the people that are grieving how or where not to vent their anger, maybe you should move back to a small town, so you will again know how it feels to feel your neighbors pain.

Mr. Arizona, my dear....

Learn how to spell(period not comma). You (new sentence starts with a capital letter) must HAVE (not of) quit school in the third grade!!

Is this a case of the Pot calling the kettle black???

In my opinion, it's more than acceptable to critique the message. However, easy on the messenger.

Jeffssis, I thought more of you before this comment, the majority of the comments made are, from people that are grieving people that knew Kecia, you know full well that there are only a few trouble makers on here that name call and such, but yet you jumped on the band wagon , and sided with someone blaming all for being gossips, and spreading rumors, you know that most on here will have a decent debate, if not side lined by the few that are just making trouble, yet you lump us all together,
