Search for mom, care for Jeni

$28,975 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 221 people in 3 months
Mom and Jeni were abducted from Jeni's home by her estranged husband. Police tell us mom was killed but they can't tell us anything more and as far as we know they don't have her body yet.  It has been the hardest week of our lives. Jeni has been found. She had been bound hands and feet. He hurt her. She is blind from chemo and end stage cancer. He is a sick and evil man. Mom was Jeni's caregiver and was staying with Jeni in her home to care for her through all that she is going through. We are all so overwhelmed.

Jeni's home, her car, all her assets are all part of the crime seen. Everything has been stripped away as they investigate. She is beyond traumatized emotionally and physically by what has happened. We are all beyond overwhelmed and don't even know how to begin to move forward.  

We don't know how or when we can even plan a memorial for mom but it will be coming. Jeni's future is going to be even more difficult than it was already. We need to figure out how to help her get through this whole ordeal.

If you can help in anyway we would appreciate the kindness.

On behalf of Jeni, dad, and all the rest us, thank you for your continued thoughts, prayers, and support. Search teams continue to look for mom's remains but so far she has not been found. We are tentatively planning a memorial to celebrate her life on July 28th in Hesperia, CA. More details will be available in the weeks ahead. Jeni has resumed her weekly chemo treatments and she had eye surgery to help relieve the pressure in her eyes. We will be taking her to a hospital in California, as well as, in Ohio for long-term medical consults. Her cancer is very rare and not everyone is able to treat it. She cannot live in Tucson on her own, so depending on which hospital has the better treatment options, we will be moving her to one or the other some time in July hopefully. We are trying to help her resolve things in Arizona as much as possible prior to then. Thank you to those helping with meals, encouragement, working on the house, the search for mom, etc. This journey has been incredibly hard and we are all exhausted with the grief, loss, ongoing investigations, medical issues, and Jeni's potential move. We would not have been able to endure without the kindness and compassion of others. We are incredibly thankful for you all.

UPDATE 5/19: Today, Jeni with her incredible strength and grace, released Norman's body to his mother and sister so they could take him back to the family home in Austin, Texas. It's hard to watch the criminal and his family get their demands and desires met, when sadly, we as the victims still have no closure with mom and continue to be victimized by a brutal process that seems to favor the criminal and his family in the short run. But we are hopeful and continue to pray that soon mom will be found and justice will be served for Jeni in the long term. Arizona, Search, Track, and Rescue agreed today to do a private search for us with their teams of cadaver dogs. They begin at the crack of dawn. Please pray God guides them to mom's location.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support. The police will be touching base with us and we should have an update tomorrow. Please continue to pray for the strength to get through this all and for Jeni's recovery. We know there is still more pain to endure in the weeks and months ahead. Jeni has multiple medical procedures in the weeks ahead. We appreciate your prayers as we help her get through this.

So you are aware of how we are using these funds: The cleaning crews have come through to clean Jeni's house. We have learned crime scene cleaning is just over $10,000 but we can submit receipts to victim's assistance and hopefully they will reimburse a large portion of that. We are also looking at purchasing cemetery plots and whatever costs are associated with a memorial service when the time comes. We are also going to use this to help cover bills at Jeni's and dad's until we get things get sorted through and we can access accounts.

Your help in our time of need means a great deal to us. Thank you so very much.

Mom had more joy than anyone I know. She knew she was loved by God and that love filled every part of her being. It gave her great peace and great joy. Anyone who has ever heard her laugh.... I am sure you can hear it now as I mention it. She just loved to laugh and it was a pure delighted wonderful laugh. She was such a precious woman. Thank you all for remembering her and for caring for our family through this horrific time.

Already we are learning of costs you just don't think about - like how much it costs to have a house specially cleaned after a crime scene, etc. and your gifts are a huge blessing to us as we walk this difficult path.

We appreciate your kindness. Thank you for for your love, prayers, and gifts. It is helping to get us through.
