It is with a heavy heart that I received the following message from a fellow ZNE member an hour ago.
Alisha her missing niece has been found and her husband has been arrested.

Dear Patti,
They found Alisha this evening. We have lost her.
Her husband was arrested.
Just wanted to let you know.
Thank you for your notes and prayers.

The following was a message from one of the founders of ZNE just after Gail sent her message to me.

A message to all members of ZNE Network
Hello ZNEers,
It is with a heavy heart that I share Gail Whitegull's updated blog post about her niece Alisha.
A little over an hour ago, Gail posted this brief update, which speaks volumes to grief and speechlessness over such horrible news:
"Alisha was found this evening. It is not the news we wanted. Her husband has been arrested. "
ZNE will be sending Gail flowers in her lovely nieces memory. Anyone who want to donate to the floral fund may do so by sending a dollar or two to
More important than any donation or flowers, are our prayers and condolences for Alisha, her family, and Alisha's two young son's who now face life without a mother and a father who has been arrested for her murder.
You may leave Gail a message on her ZNE Network page, here:
Please hold your family tight tonight. In memory of all women who have lost lives so senselessly - remember teach your children love, empathy, and nonviolent means of conflict resolution.
xoxo - Chel

My prayers will go up for this family. A great and senseless tragedy. Life is so precious. It last for a moment, we must all take responsibility to not only teach our children love and caring for all life, but keep our minds in check. Anger comes quickly over things of really no great importance. Win this battle of your mind with love and respect. My heart is so saddened for all who suffer.♡♡♡♡♡✞

When and if you feel it would be o.k., I would want to reach out to Gail. If you would be so kind as to send any particulars to me at faerieluna at cox dot net. Having lost my little sister a little over a year ago at the brutal hands of her husband, I am brought back instantly to the depth of grief Gail and her family are in the midst of. I am so truly heartbroken for them.
