In Memorium

I just found out that Jamie-Lynn Walsh, one of my friends from East Pictou, died Monday. I'd even seen her fairly recently - just three or four days before I moved to Antigonish for school. I bumped into her downtown at the Salvation Army store, and she had her baby girl with her. I can't remember the chil's name righ now, but she's less than a year old. Jamie-Lynn had been looking for baby clothes and stuff, and we had chatted for twenty minutes or so. Then I had to go because I had something else to do, though I can't remember what.

Her death is no longer suspicious, but now considered a homicide. I never even realised that the New Glasgow Police HAD a Major Crime unit, though of course they would. I had just never really thought about it before. Though it's unlikely, I hope there's a wake or something before I go back to school.

Rest in peace, Jamie-Lynn, and I hope they find out what the hell happened.
