Horrible and sad news Vote for this post

I'm sure many of you remember a lovely lady  by the name of Sheils Morgan.  She was a member here for many years quite a long time ago, and before my time, but I know that many of you knew her.

Apparently there are gangs of Indians in her town in Wales, who had been breaking in to homes in her neighborhood.  They broke in to her house and she was stabbed. She was in the hospital and developed an infection and died during surgery. 

I am just shocked and stunned by the cruelty and senselessness of her death. I never think of things like this happening over there...it seems like such a peaceful, beautiful part of the world.  HORRIBLE.

If anyone wants to e-mail me....feel free.  I know that she had lots of friends, here. My e-mail address is maggiesmomma@msn.com

Love and hugs,
Jeanie and Annabel
and Jolly....my heart at RB

I believe this was their member page (see first link). Laddie and Misty. Years ago we had a huge wedding adventure here, I believe it was when Laddie and Maddie got married. It was the highlight of the year and we OLD members had so much fun with it. I just cannot believe that something so horrible would happen to such a nice person.

and the link below was their "wedding Album." Oh gosh, so many fond memories.

As I recall, there was even a book printed (I think profits went to rescue). I have a copy somewhere.

This was my first Westie, Reggie, with his sweetheart, Martigale, all gussied up for the wedding.

(We later adopted ROO from Marti's Mom, Georgia Griffis, who rescued Roo and fostered him until I could go and bring him home. That was almost 15 years ago.)

Great pictures, Cheryl.

Could you or someone notify Betty and Fran?  I don't think they are on Facebook, and I don't know how to notify them.  I did send a FB message to Eve.

And also, Mark....I don't know how often he checks to board.....

I can't stop crying......

Sadly, I've lost touch with them, Jeanie. But Mark does check in fairly frequently, or you could post a message with his name in it and I'm sure he will see it. I think his e-mail might be
info@terrierclub.com
if I remember correctly.

I don't want to start a death penalty debate and it's OK with me if people disagree with me- but everyone involved in this should not longer be allowed to breathe. Such wanton disregard for human life to me says you are a scourge that needs to be eliminated from this earth. Anyone who can hurt a defenseless woman  (or animal or child for that matter) needs to go.

I TOTALLY agree, Patti!

I have learned that her husband was also stabbed.  The knife was dirty, and that is what caused the infection.

They have caught at least one of them...but I don't know how many there were. 

The dogs were not hurt, so if she was not protecting the dogs....WHY DID THEY STAB HER????

I just can't get over this....so tragic and senseless.....

That is just disgusting. People today have no respect for human life. Too bad she did not have a weapon of her own and the people breaking in lost their life instead.

Sending prayers her way.

Sheils was long before my time but I am so heartbroken and sad
to hear this news. I always think of the nations of the UK to be safe
and violence free as for one thing no one there carries or uses guns, thank God
But of course their are evil crazy people all over the world and I am so sad
to hear Sheils was a victim of these evil people.
There is no place in Heaven for evil and these people will burn in
hell with everything else that is evil about our world.

Jeanie I know you are devastated by this event and I just send my love
and hugs and my friendship.
God be with you now and for the whole year so these awful things
will leave you alone now.

I don't know for sure, Annie...but I think it was in the past few days.  She died yesterday.  Now, I hear they used a dirty knife, which caused the infection...but it baffles me, how this could happen in a hospital, and they could not control it. 

I may be repeating myself...but they have arrested a 24 yr. old local man, and he is in custody.  I don't know about the rest of them, as I think there were several involved.

Hugs....

I tried finding out more on the internet but only found out about the young couple. The surname of one of them was also Morgan, I think. I'm sure there is probably no connection, but it's strange, just the same.

That seems very strange to me, too Cheryl!  I have a couple of friends over there trying to find something.....but nothing so far.  

I guess they are going to be doing an investigation....but what is taking so long?  I will try to keep everyone posted, but I need to back off for a bit....I guess I am asking too many questions!!!!

I can't fathom what goes through a human mind that would make it do something like this. It upsets me to no end that people have so little respect for human life. It's terrible, but I have found myself shying away from crowds and especially young people...My heart goes out to her husband and I pray that he recovers quickly so he and the pups can draw comfort from each other.

What terrible news. I have many fond memories of Sheils and this is just heartbreaking. She was very active in the early years of the Terrier Club and had a great sense of humor. 

Such a senseless loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.

Thank you Jeanie for letting us know of this sad news. Yes, I remember Sheils and Wayne and their pups Misty and Laddie. I am just so shocked and saddened. Sheils was a nice lady and certainly didn't deserve this ending. My thoughts go out to Wayne and their family.

I am also certain Sheils is waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for Laddie and Misty to run into her arms.

Thank you all for wanting to let me know. I miss this place. Such a happy part of my life for many years.

Fran & R gang all at RB with Ralphie and their Daddy too.

Such sad horrible news.

I met Sheils and her Westies Laddie and Misty right here on TC years ago when I joined, it was 1999..It wasn't long before we started adventuring to places we could only imagine, Sheils had a wonderful imagination and sense of humor, our adventures were always full of fun. As time went by, members went their own way, I heard from Sheils over the years. She will be fondly remembered

My heart hurts for her family.

Thank you for posting, Betty.  I especially wanted to let you know, as I know that you and Sheils were close.  She contacted me a couple of years ago, as she wanted reach out to you.  I think it was when you lost one of the "girlies", so I know how much she cared for you and your pups.

I didn't join the TC until 2004, so I never knew her here.

She was loved by many....all over the world....it is just so unfair.....

Jeanie

Laddie crossed the Rainbow Bridge on March 21, 2011 and I know he was right there waiting as Sheils walked across, they are together again once more :(
