Can't find the words....

Wow. Its hard to believe that its been over a week since Konrad was killed. Konrad is my older (step) brother. He was killed late Saturday night in a hit and run accident. I personally believe that the girl who hit him was drunk, since she waited over 24 hours to turn herself in, even after they found her rental car abandoned.
I guess I knew I really needed to write about this, I have just not been able to concentrate enough to do it until today. Last week I went to work to distract myself a little, and pretty much cried or slept otherwise. Friday my aunts and I drove down to Knoxville TN to meet my stepmom Darcy and my Dad for Konrads funeral. It was actually a really nice funeral. A ton of his friends from school came and spoke. I coupled ageed to send me pictures via facebook so I can give them to Darcy. Darcy seemed to be taking everything ok, but she said she was just so tired from crying she couldn't physically cry anymore. Even my dad took it hard.
It was hard to leave Knoxville after the service Saturday. Eventually Darcy kicked us out and sent us on our way. My aunts made a surprise stop and drove me around Richmond KY on our way back, since that is where my new school is. I hadn't been there yet so it was nice to see the campus. They are building a brand new science center, so that is exciting. It was reassuring to see that while campus was bigger than LSSU, its not huge, so it won't be too much of a change for me. There is also a National City in Richmond, so I won't have to switch banks, which is a blessing.
