    A freaking large derailment happened when that thread was shut
    And folks, that's why Rob and I are extremely emotional about this.

    Okay everybody... let's take a deep breath and remember what this forum is about. Although some of us are very passionate about the horrific attack on Grace, this is not the place to get so upset and rant. Yes it happened in Aruba, but other things happen in Aruba that we probably never hear about, especially since we are not locals and living full time on the island. So let's get back to sharing our trips, places to eat, airline fares, pictures and the usual things we like or gripe about.

    I please ask everyone for civility in discussing this. I have been working here on the Island with a large potential donor I made a written submission to them yesterday to assist the gofundme campaign. In the submission I included reference to this forum and the links. I am hoping that what has transpired with some of the comments will not lead to them backing away. Prior to those comments this entity was prepared to participate I just hope we haven't lost them

    Ok Here is the latest. Tonight I spoke with Grace and will visit with her and her husband tomorrow. She is at home. She is being treated for extreme pain but starting to di OK. The person who did this to her has written A 10 page letter of apology which Grace did not accept and referred to her lawyer. He is in solitary confinement and since he is deemed a dangerous offender he is not a allowed outside for air or exercise.

    Today at she read all the messages from donors and wishes to say thank you and "God Blesss to all" for the kind words.

    The funds that were raised will in part be used to help her in her home and to get treatment not covered here

    Grace is truly appreciative of all the help


    Thanks everyone for the generous support

    so, since he wrote a 10 page letter of apology..............this could be used against him in court.
    i am glad that mrs angela, referred it to her attorney.

    now what? will he go to trial?

    i find his actions sickening and horrific, i hope that he is punished to the full extent of aruban law and hopefully gets some much needed help with what i can assume are huge psychiatric issues.

    Andrea, when I get more accurate info I will post. All I can say is that both Grace and her husband are in awe at what has been done for them. They are quiet and unassuming people They are deeply religious. They represent those truly nice Aruban people that all of us get to meet.
