Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. – Romans 12 verse 15 (NKJV)
We, the Comrades of Unit 1012: The VFFDP, will remember Miana Stewart who died on this date, October 13, 2005 in West Virginia. We will have two prayers for her and her family from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer:
Miana Stewart (PHOTO SOURCE: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=105115352859917&set=pb.105114236193362.-2207520000.1381654132.&type=3&permPage=1)
Let us hear from her mother:
QUOTE: "Besides missing her every day, I also miss what I will never get to have. I will never get to see her go on a date or get married. I will never get to have a grandchild. That day changed my life so drastically. Why don't the politicians understand that this should be prevented from someone else going through? Don't let murderers out of jail early and support capital punishment," Stewart said. "Aren't the people and children of West Virginia worth it?"
AUTHOR: Mary Stewart is the mother of Miana Stewart's favorite color was purple. The 14-year-old was an honor student at Musselman High School with lots of friends. She loved to ride her horse. She played the violin and clarinet. She was active in her church, and one of her most prized possessions was a cross she wore around her neck, said her mother, Mary Stewart. Miana Stewart died as a result of injuries from being beaten and strangled during an Oct. 10, 2005, home-invasion robbery. Mary Stewart, beaten and strangled herself, managed to escape and call for help, but it was too late. The last memories she has with her daughter are those of being tied up and bleeding from her head after having been beaten with a bat and dragged down the stairs. As her daughter lay bound nearby, she watched as Miana was strangled with a rope, and she listened as her only child struggled to take her last breaths.
