This is a local story for me, and I was so worried that she was one of us. The second that I read that she and the youngest child were murdered while cosleeping I knew.

So very, very, very sad.

I couldn't stop thinking about Francie and her precious children last night. I just don't get it. How could someone snap like that. I can understand taking your own life, I guess, but your family? What a horrible tragedy. Thanks, OP for linking her blog, facebook page and the news article.

I know, I know. One of the news articles had a picture of her with her children, the youngest in an Ergo. I wonder if that is why it hits us so hard-- even though we (or at least I) didn't know her, I feel like I did-- like I shared at least some of her values and dreams.

It is impossible to understand something that can never make sense.

I think that's it. I feel like its such a small AP/NFL world and we feel close to her in a way. I read through her blog and cried at her surprise UC with her youngest. I pray for both of their families. This is just too hard

I am so broken up about his. It is so very sad. I will keep all involved in my prayers.

I googled to find an update on the story and found a terrible article. I am now even more upset. A so called professional is laying blame all on Francie. I am so very bad a writing letters but I just feel like something needs to be said. Francie deserves to be remembered as the great mother she was. Please PM me if you can stomach the article and email or write on behalf of Francie.

I am so sick.
