~Court Hearing Yesterday~'s Friday night...and I'm sitting here catching up on emails and thought I would do a little update on the court case for the drunk driver that killed Ian this summer.
The District Attorney has decided to file "Second Degree Murder" charges. I updated Ian's blog for the family tonight so you can go there to read more information. This is a BIG deal. A really big deal. It could drastically change the sentence that Shannon Shimp will recieve when convicted.
Please keep our family in your prayers. Also my father-in-law lost his father a few weeks ago and my mother-in-law lost her sister on Saturday. Please say some extra prayers for them. As if losing Ian wasn't hard enough, they now have more loss to deal with.
For more details go to ~In Memory of Ian Kinney~ .

Blessings and prayers for all of you durring this trying time!


Sorry to hear that your Family is going through even more hardships of losing loved ones.
I hope that the prosecuter will change his mind and get justice for IAN and charge the guy with the maximun allowed! Is there a way to petition for that?
This guy never needs to be on the streets again!
I continue to keep all of you in my prayers.

I'm so sorry to hear about your in-laws' losses. I can't even imagine what they're going through right now, but I will continue to pray for them to be comforted during this time of heartache in their lives!

I hope that the trial results in the conviction of the drunk driver, and that he will not be allowed to cause anymore pain and hardship towards others.

Be assured that I'll keep you and your family in my prayers, Katie!
