Kelly, Remembered

Kelly, Remembered (2011)

Kelly, today you would have turned thirty three
What a beautiful lady you would now be
I miss the walks we use to take along the ocean shore
And all the things we did together that we can't do any more
But ever since you left this world I have been deeply driven
By thoughts about the night you died and will I be forgiven
I returned you to the place you felt such lonely desperation
Thinking it was safe for you was a foolish expectation
I'm sorry that you were too little to ever comprehend
I never would have left you had I known your life would end
The evil that you succumbed to the night your fate was sealed
Did not go undiscovered as his secrets were revealed
I know that I am part to blame in close association
To love you and to keep you safe I had an obligation
With secrets I embedded deep I had to use discretion
With all my faith in just one man I gave a rare confession
So Kelly, I can tell you, with reasonable absolution
That this man and, his unit, are set on a resolution
A Cold Case Unit comprised, of four men that are the best
They are Kind, unselfish saviors, that help the victims rest
They never let a family's grief be their personal gain
No matter who the victims are they can feel their pain
They understand the anger, and comfort all the sorrow
They're honor is compelling, a policy others should borrow
Every day they do their job and are rarely ever praised
They complete their task for victims and are totally unfazed
By all the attention suspects get beneath ones moral guide
They will always stand for justice while never having lied
So as each and every victim dies in deep and dark despair
There's a glitter of hope in knowing this Unit really cares
Kelly, I am so sorry that you were battered through the years
And for what your father did to you as you spent your life in tears
I know your little body and your soul are filled with scars
For you, the Cold Case Unit put your father behinds bars
I'm very grateful to them for having the courage and heart to say
We won't let the man who killed you-ever get away.

To Pay Tribute To: The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department
Cold case Unit: Detectives Robert Alexander, Greg Myler, Prosecutors: John Thomas, Mike Fermin

concerned, this is a beautiful tribute to Kelly. I hope you have gotten over your guilt on this case. You did absolutely nothing to Kelly. Had you known what she was going through, you would have intervened on her behalf.

I DID know Kim's husband had abused her several times, but I never thought he would murder her. I also felt guilty when I received the phone call, because I wasn't there to protect her but now I know there was nothing I could have done, short of shooting him.

Thanks Mama, shooting him would have been good. For him. But then again, I remember when the cold case detective told me that I shouldn't waste any more time thinking about Charles, he wasn't worth my time. But thinking about shooting him works for me too. I know you miss her but had you been able to save her, I know you would have. Then..but eventually he would have hurt her anyway. We can't bring them back Mama. So try really hard not to become the vey person you hate....
