I like to joke about living in Stepford. In our neighborhood, you can have any style of house you want so long as it looks just like the house next to yours. It's a pretty tame community, not so unlike the farming community I grew up in. But a couple days ago, we had a shock.
A manager at a fast food restaurant was killed before the store opened. It's unclear at this point if it was a robbery, or how much if any money was stolen. She had a husband and two kids, 12 and 22. Loved her job. Loved Christmas. Earlier this year, she was managing a different restaurant and was attacked. She was pistol whipped and lost her hearing. She requested a transfer here, and got it.
Then she was killed. They are setting up a fund for her family, and we'll be donating to it. I'll post information when it becomes available.
