Over the years, we have been blessed by the witness of Bob Hessman and his family as they dealt with the loss of their beloved Mary Mel Eesa Rains to homicide.
Bob and his family talked of the challenges they faced after her murder, and how they drew strength from their faith and family and friends as they went on without their beloved Mel. They spoke out time and again against the death penalty as murder victim family members.
Bob recently passed away. We will miss this man of faith and courage.
Even though he will no longer be with us in person, we can continue to learn from his personal witness through this video in the KCADP archives.
