They are dearly loved and missed

From my journal dated November 21, 2002:

I went by the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office today to order copies of the charging documents. As I left the courthouse, I saw a sign for the Prosecutor’s Office. I decided to stop by and introduce myself. It was just a whim, but I really wanted to put faces to the people involved.

I had to wait a few minutes, but the deputy prosecutor made time for me. She is definitely not a warm, fuzzy person. I guess you couldn’t really be warm and fuzzy in her position. She apologized for the victim’s advocate not calling us when they filed charges.

I told her I wanted to meet her because, although she technically represents the State against J.H.*, she also also represents our kids. They are not just faceless numbers involved in fatalities in Snohomish County. They are people who are dearly loved and missed.
