Gil Harrington’s thoughts from january 13th, 2011

January 12, 2011

It is very slow finding your way through a minefield like the holidays. We did so well! We had some genuine moments of joy, even though there were also many crying times. There is a lot of pain in discarding family traditions that are fractured for us without Morgan taking her part in them.

Like: Morgan was always the best at deciphering the treasure hunt clues for the “biggest” gift. We won’t / can’t play that game anymore.

Like: Morgan loved those chocolate crinkle cookies that you refrigerate and you roll in powdered sugar. I would only make them at Christmas time. Morgan had a sixth sense of exactly when, and inevitably find the refrigerated dough and would eat the majority before we could get the cookies baked. We won’t / can’t make that recipe any more.

Like: Morgan had what appeared to be a giant green metallic scrunchie with bells all over it. She would force our dog, Kirby, to wear his “jingle bell necklace” at Christmas. Kirby is sort of schizoid and afraid of his own shadow, so you can imagine how funny his response to this Christmas dress up attire was. Morgan thought it was a riot. We won’t/ can’t do that anymore.(Kirby is profoundly grateful for the reprieve; but I will miss the silliness)

Like: Morgan was notorious for taking one little nibble from most of the chocolates in a box, and then putting them back in her quest for her favorite caramels. Many repetitions of “if you bite it, you eat it” made her change her ways. Instead, to get around the no bite rule, she started poking her finger in the bottom of each one instead! We won’t / can’t have chocolates as sweet ever again.

These memories of Morgan are difficult to contemplate. I tend to neutralize the bitterness of such thoughts here. Somehow, writing about feelings that are painful is like removing the splinter or shard of glass from a wound before it festers. As with those excision, writing about Morgan and our grief is perhaps painful, but ultimately promotes healing and growth.

There are not enough words, or paper, or keystrokes to help us “get over” this loss; however, I do see a way through by sharing my feelings to dilute the anguish so that we are able to “get beyond” this tragedy.

Thank each of you for caring enough to carry us as we move through this rough landscape of life with out Morgan Dana Harrington.

Gill, I am so sorry you now have to live without your beautiful daughter. Morgan only had 20 years to live, but during those 20 years, she was loved and respected and appreciated more than some children get in a long lifetime. Morgan had wonderful loving parents. For this, I and many others are grateful. Happy you can now find some moments of joy in life. Much love and strength to you.

'"OK", You are so right. I am not perfect and certainly don't do everything right (just ask my family). But I never said I was. You are probably alot more perfect than I. I am only defending a family's right to call their child what they want or to work for a safer world. Most of the people who support the Harringtons have done much more than I. Actually, comparatively, I am a lazy slug. And how can one self promote when they don't even use their real name?'

Newsflash: FBI should check the DNA of the baby killer in Danville.(I know---silly me---they already have!)

I saw the composite sketch when I googled the Morgan Harrington sites. It was given by the surviving rape victim from the mid-nineties in Northern Va. Her rapist beat her badly and was interrupted by passersby---who knows--he might have gone on to kill her, because it is his DNA that is associated with Morgan's found shirt.

I saw a photo of the father down in Danville who killed his infant son this past year. The hairline and a couple of features reminds one of the rapist's composite up in No Va.

Sorry, I probably erred badly on the date of the composite.

Well well, so that blows the psychics story out of the water. That guy was probably a drug dealer that Morgan arranged to meet and score some "goodies" from. It's a known fact meeting with drug dealers can be dangerous. Risky behavior can turn into tragedy.
I grudgingly have to agree with you.

I don't have time to read all the thread, so I know this comment will be redundant: the drug connection also explains the farm site where body was found...a location for parties.

However, couldn't we say that 99 and 44/100% of partiers are not killers?! So, turn him/them in. Someone knows and others can conjecture and instinctively know who the killer is. So give up the information!

So are there any new leads on this case?
I realize this may be a bit off topic, but I used to talk to Kevin McNeill a few years back when he was on facebook and was obsessing over being with Morgan. Is it true he died? And if so is there a link to his obit I could get?
