Shirley, originally uploaded by NellyMoser.

I was a little taken aback, last night, to see this photograph on the front page of the local paper. It was taken in our kitchen when Shirley was staying with us. The paper stated that it was a picture 'taken in happier times'. She was quite happy that day, getting ready to go out to meet some friends in Ballymena. There were also lots of days when she didn't appear so happy.

Ballymena was where Shirley made her home and it was where she made the few good friends who loved her, but it was also in Ballymena where she was cruelly mistreated and abused by some others who were not her friends and, finally, where she was callously murdered.

Today her murderer has been found guilty after a long trial.

Sometimes I really do hope that Hell exists. For there are others who have never been brought to justice for the crimes they committed against this vulnerable young girl. I really do hope that there will be a Hell for them and that they will roast in it for ever.

Ther is definately a Hell and they will be going there. I never met the girl and I am sorry for her pain. She looks so very pretty and happy in this photograph. God Rest her Soul

Nelly, I was thinking about you when I saw the news earlier.Lets hope the rest are brought to justice and all serve a decent length of sentence for what they've done.

I don't think it will happen in this life Dave.

Good - I am glad this has finally been sorted out. Has taken a fair few years though.

Hope all is well at Nellybert!
