In our local paper......

Female inmate dies in jail cell...(click on link)this was in our local paper...Ventura County Acorn. This female inmate was the grandmother of Titus and Amelia(my 8 yo grandson and 7 yo granddaughter)..their father's grandchildren were there,during the weekend visitation with their father,who lives with his mother!,and saw her arrested!! This was such a terrible thing for them to have witnessed and to know she died in a jail cell. Titus and Amelia went to her funeral last Friday.   Say a prayer for my granchildren...such an awful thing for them to have gone through at such a young age! I pray they were not witness to the charges she pled guilty to...and that there were not other instances of violence that they saw.

Oh Ann,
That is just too sad. No children should ever have to witness anything of the nature..Wish we could just put them in a protective bubble and keep them safe from any hurtful time..They are so lucky to have you!

I am not able to think what to comment here but I can see how hard you must feel to be a protector of them.
God bless you all!!!
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to Calf-sis, xoxo Miyako*

My grand daughters's mother is in prison they are 7 & 16. The youngest just saw her mother on Weds.
Thank goodness they arrested their mother at work. With 4millon woman in the system, it is a scary world out there. Thinking of your grand daughters & your families

Ann said... was my grandkids other grandmother..their fathers mother! It's sad that their last memory of her was seeing her arrested.What bothers me is that they tried to hide the fact that she had ABUSED her son(who is also her grandson) from us..we had no idea that she had a warrant out granddaughter told us that when the police came ,their father told his mother to hide! Can you imagine! Their father is going to jail for 20 days for his FELONY drug charge probation violation..he has had 4 years to complete his Prob 36,still hasn't done it. And,the courts insist he have his visitation. I thank you for your comment and thoughts.He lets my grandson play violent videao..Halo and Hitman..Titus was 8 in March...we have told the father that the videos are not appropriate and that his therapist says he shouldn't,also..but he continues to let him! Yep, California thinks he's "dad material"...scary!

Oh Ann, I am so sorry for all of you. I know this breaks your heart beyond belief. Your grand babies have been through far too much for their ages. No child should endure such things. I am so thankful that they have you. My prayers and candle glow for you and yours sweetie.
