    This may or may not be proper to post here.. but I feel I must write about it somewhere.

    I don't want to pass judgement on the husband, whom I know and in fact talked with only recently at a caving convention, but the wife Shelley was a close friend and will be missed by many.

    Love is precious, many times I've taken friends from granted, then when they are gone it is too late to say "I love you man", or "You've been a good friend"

    In the case of Shelley, I was able to speak with her just recently and while we didn't talk of life, at least we spoke.

    I miss her, and while she wasn't part of the BHW... she and I worked on multiple music video and film projects over the years.

    That's all... just wanted some of you to send a thought out to her (in spiritual form) and to her family (two children) who are left behind.

    That sucks.. It is sad to say that most murders are committed by people the victim knew. Feel really sorry for the kids.

    This also happened with a friend of my brother's about 2 years ago. The father beat the wife and two young children to death and after was involved in a high speed chase trying to escape police. Although i don't directly know what it feels like, i can see your pain. I hope that you will be able to recover from this tragic incident.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. I've started telling my friends how much I love them lately. You can tell it catches them off guard and it sounds kind of corny at times, but I tell them that I just wanted them to know just in case... My prayers to you and yours.
