Mountains & Valleys

MOUNTAIN - It's a multi-faceted relief to find out who robbed the Tupper Lake bank in April 2009, to know that's the worst we got from serial killer Israel Keyes (as far as we know now, anyway), and to know he won't kill or rob again. We cannot be happy about his death, or anyone's, and we wish he had lived long enough to tell the FBI more about his murderous past and thus solve other crimes, giving more answers to grieving family members. He chose instead to kill himself, which is sad but consistent with the other terrible choices he made throughout his life. He did much evil in this world, yet he was loved; his family is having a funeral for him, sermon and all. Imagine being there for that. Perhaps this family is grieving even more than those of the victims. By all accounts no one knew he was a killer; his mother was pleading with him to repent being an atheist. To learn what he really was, and to lose him in such a way, is a loss that's hard to fathom. To love him through such obstacles would be great love indeed.
