She was my 2nd cousin. Why did he have to take her out just because he didn't want to live? It's so unfair!!

I recieved an e-mail from Douglas with what happened and was shocked. He explained what transpired before hand and what led up to this horrible tradgedy. What he did will never be forgotten however we need to lean on God for His healing for the family. These types of murder-suicides never resolve anything for anyone in my opinion. Please, if someone in your family, especially during the hard times that we are all facing, is struggling with finances, invite them into your home. Help them get back on their feet no matter how much time , effort and money it takes. We cant have any more events like this that takes the life of someone that was innocent like Christina was.Reach out people, help those that you love so that nothing like this happens to them.

I worked with Tina and the girls and I all miss her terribly. She was a beautiful person and made our lives better just to know her. Its such a shame this happened to her. I never would have expected this of Jim. So strange.

had worked with Chrissy a few years agao and once every 6 months or so we (Jim included) would go out to eat and have a night on the town. I knew he was not working but I had no idea that it was that bad. So imagine my shock when I had not heard form them and went looking, left my card and got a message next day on my cell phone from a neighbor. If anyone sees this, I really would like some information as to what transpired. What happened to those dogs that she had? michaelcochranmi@aol.com

This is a horrible tragedy...and it makes us all take inventory of ourselves...would I, could I should I??? are all many of us can manage to utter after becoming aware of such things happening...everyone has what they feel is the cure to all of this but I pray that God will comfort those affected by this...obviously it was something that no one had a clue would, or ever could come to pass...ultimately we all need someone to confide in and being willing to be of some sort of help to each other...heck none of us is perfect but that does not mean that we should throw our hands in the air and simply give up...lets get to know our neighbors and as much as we can be helpful to each other...

I was looking at my site http://www.lessnau.com search logs and someone searched Christine Lessnau murder/suicide. So I became curious and did some searching and found this page. I don't think I was directly related, but my condolences to the Lessnau family.
