Oh Amy I am so glad you were able to find us here. It is so very great that our own Maureen has been here. She is one of the most wonderful people in the whole world. I think what you will find great about her and so many of the people here at Peace 4 is that they are strong in many ways and compassionate. I know that we can now rap our arms around you and support you how you will need it. Thank you for coming here and I hope this space helps you and we can help you and everything that Maureen said....Ditto.
Amy...all these things are happening but you didn't cause any of it. The roller coaster ride will stop...you just have to concentrate on when it does stop who will emerge from the ride. My guess is a better and stronger you. I know it doesn't seem that way at this second but you haven't gone through all of this to in the end just give up on yourself. You can't control Robby's family they own their own hatefulness. You can control not becoming a hateful person yourself. You can't control the evil that is the murderer. The best justice for you would be to go and have a great life in spite of the havoc that evil person created in your life. Don't let his evil permeate your whole life, you can control that, you can have the upper hand by creating a blessed and happy life, make evil the loser and goodness the winner. Even though so much bad has happened have you sat down and made out a list of all the good things that have happened? It might surprise you.
Thank You for your kind words. Robby was my fiance , (of seven years). I met him 1year after the death of my husband. (who, at the age of 32) died in his sleep, leaving me with 3 beautiful girls. RObby was my hero., we were together everyday after Oct.06,2002. On Oct 18th ,2009, Robby was shot and killed in our home, by a "friend" after a verbal argument. The accused (Estaban), shot him 2x, returned in the room, and shot him again, turning the gun on me, and( for the grace of god, ) had no more bullets. ( Robby died in my arms ) after 4 months of running, the Us marshal's apprehended him, (4 months to the day).
Estaban has been charged with 1st degree murder, and assault with a firearm. His pre-trial conference is sched. for April 20th.
I not only lost Robby, I was forced to move back with my parents (with estaban on the run) I was not safe at our home. I lost my job, and to add salt to the wounds, Robby's family (whom he did not talk to) came in a took whatever they wanted from our home. forcing me to have to call the police and have them removed. Now they continue to blame me, saying horrible things about me. and even refused me his ashes.
The state of Az. has refused me victim $ , because I have an outstanding traffic fine. I am 2 weeks away from loosing everything in my storage shed(do see a therapist) but everyday, instead of getting better, I get weaker. -thats my story. any suggestions?
thanks for listening. love- amy
Oh Amy welcome. Glad Gwennie sent you to Peace4. You can "need us" all you want. Whenever you are ready to share your story you can....don't feel you have to. When is the trial? Is there anything we can do to help you prepare? Be as needy as you want to be, lean on us.
