missing boy in Idaho found.I want a pill bad.

I don't know what state everyone lives in but if It is Idaho or around then you know of the disaperance of 8 year old Robert Manwall. He was my 1st cousin.My uncle married his mom when she was pregant with him.And he loved him like his true son.My whole family loved that boy like he was are own.They divorced when Robert was 6. My uncle would have divorce her sooner but stayed married to her to protect him.I can't say much since the investagtion is still going but they pulled him from a canal yesterday dead.We got the call this morning that it was him before they relised it to the public.All I can say is roberts mom was plain mean to him and my uncle called thr police many times on her for that.When they divorce my uncle tried to get custody of him but lost becauce he was not the true father to Robert.My uncle got ahold of his true dad and he did get custody of him. The mom got visition right only.My uncle tried so hard to protect him just to lose him.Then on the 24th we got the call that Robert disapperd.They held news meeting and a big searce party for him for 11 days.We got the call this morning that the body they found in the canal was Roberts before the released to the public.My uncle and the rest of my family is taking this so hard and my uncle want to kill him self thinking that if they gave him custody Robert would still be alive.Like I said can't say much becauce the investagtion is still going but damn I am dying inside losing my little cousin like that.I just want all this pain inside to go away. I have been crying for 11 days now and now its only worse.I know a Pain pill will make it go away for a while,but I'm tying to stay tough for my uncle.He thinks this is fault becauce he could not get custody of him and that is killing him.I want that baby back so bad just to tell him how much we love him.May he rest in peace now that is not getting  hurt all the time.I need all the prayers I can get Please Plymouthgirl

I'm so sorry for your loss plymouthgirl, Heres a poem I hope it helps with the healing of your loss.

                                              The sand of time ran low
                                              And I'm sorry my loved ones I must go
                                              My heart with Love is filled
                                              But now its beating must be stilled

                                              I leave no treasures of any kind
                                              Only my Love I leave behind
                                              Take it and Share it between Sister and Brother
                                              And always be Kind to one another
          
                                              Weep not beside the grave for me
                                              Don't bring me flowers I cannot see
                                              Only ashes lie beneath the cold sod
                                              Please pray my soul has gone to GOD

                                              Some of you perhaps may weep
                                              For my eyes are closed in Eternal sleep
                                              But try to remember it won't be forever
                                              For GOD will bring our Spirits together

                                              I pray that I go to a world above
                                              To be with others that I Love
                                              And to wait awhile on the heavenly plain
                                              Until the day we shall meet again

                                                                                         ~ Florence Meinnes

                                                             You have my heart felt Prayers and Blessings

                                                                                                jimi (little wing)

oh sweetie i am so very sorry =((  I heard this news last night as i was flipping through the channels and saw nancy grace show on. I had heard of his vanishing when it first happened, and now so sad to hear it ended this way. We just went through a similar thing here in NW ohio/ SE Mich with the abduction and murder of little 5 yr old Nevaeh Buchanan, too. The whole community grieves much like it will for little Robert too.
My prayers and heart go out to you and the family. PM me if you need to talk or anything.

That is horrible and I cannot say what I want to say about the person that did that. whom ever, for sure it turns out to be. anyone that harms a kid needs to have their AZZ beat violently.  

and in this case and simmilar cases, death penalties should be administered.

but unfortunately you know the pill is not going to make things better. keep clean, thats the best thing you can do for your loved ones.

My friend, I am so sad for you and your family. now that you and everyone in your world is in our prayers. Robert is with the Lord now in peace and being loved like crazy and in a world that is pain free. Life is not easy but we are here for you. I am seriously so saddend by this tragedy and I need you to know that youare though of and cared for.
Try and keep clean for Robert, but do know this, if you do take a pill It's understandable, maybe not the right thing but you will nbot be judged. Try hard to keep away from the drugs and know that you have many many friends here for you. If you need to talk anytime. I will be on all day.
Lord Jesus, please help my friend and family to stay strond during this horrific time, comfort her with your arms and give her peace and love on the hour and every minuite. Please help the family to stay strong and give them beautiful memories of that precious boy. In  your name I pray----Amen
God bless you sweetie

I am sooooo sorry for your loss, there's no words for the loss of a child.... He's in good hands right now and will never be hurt again.
Your pill is not gonna solve anything tho, on the contrary, you'll feel even worse afterwards. Please keep strong, your uncle and your family will need all the support they can get and you too. Stay together to work things out.
My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.
Love and hugs. sophie.

Thanks for all the prayers and  kind words. I had  a pill in my hand just now then read the prayers and locked it back in the safe.I just keeping thinking back of the last time I saw him. about 4 months ago. he came running to me through his arms around my neck and would not let go.I did not let go either.I should have picked him up and ran and not looked back.I have no more faith in the child welfare system. they gave up on him and so did the police. or he would be with my uncle and the family who really loved him.Plymouthgirl

I just saw this post and had to send a message...even though it is late. I am so sorry to have heard about the dissappearance of little Robert. I have followed this story and had such a huge range of emotions on his behalf. I grew up in Boise. My niece is also a friend of someone in your family. It is such an unnecessary tragedy. You are so right about the fact that he is safe in God's arms and can NEVER be hurt again. How are you doing? I can only imagine what you have been going through. You have all been in my prayers from the first time I heard about Robert. I haven't heard lately what is happening with the case against the mother and her boyfriend. I hope justice happens swiftly so you and your family can hopefully find some peace. God bless you my dear. Big huggs. Lynn
