Friends, family and fellow UVM college students packed UVM’s Ira Allen Chapel in Burlington, VT to eulogize 21 year old Michelle Gardner-Quinn. A sad conclusion to yet another crime in a college campus setting.
With her parents, sister and brother sitting in the front row Sunday, the Rev. Sue Marie Baskette, a campus minister, spoke of Gardner-Quinn’s love of nature.
“We are angry and wanting to shout and scream at the top of our lungs. Why? Why, God, why? Yet there is no answer, only the stinging reminder of our frail existence here on earth,” Baskette said. (WCBS-TV)
