xx A Story of How The Missing Forms Special Bonds
« Thread started on: Apr 15th, 2005, 09:24am »

I thought this story was worth sharing with the community. Hope you will read it and find it as interesting as I do.

As many of you are aware, this area where we all work will often times bring people together who live many miles away. Most of the time the bonds are formed by families suffering the same type of loss. There are some neat stories of friendships that dont necessarily involve something sad.

Several years ago, a young lady from Texas did a search on her name on Google as many of us have probably done before. What she found was a missing person website for Kristin Denise Smart who was missing from San Luis Obispo CA. She continued to read the information. She would then begin to visit the website on a regular basis and would start to participate in an online chat group concerning the case. The case was very interesting and drew the attention of many. THis is where a life long bond would form but it was unexpected.

There was another young woman named Gina who was in New York who visited the site for Kristin frequently as well. They began to chat.

After several weeks of chatting about the case, a friendship formed. Later on the ladies would both become engaged the same year, and they'd share many similarities. The two ladies would meet in late 2004. The friendship is credited to the website Son of Susan headed by Dennis Mahon a North Carolina resident.

The two ladies are strong supporters of the search for Kristin Smart and the efforts of Dennis Mahon. They claim that their friendship is all because of a missing girl that neither have met.

I find it amazing how such a tragic event could bring people together and form such strong bonds. We never know what situation in life can bring us to meet others who are meant to be our friend. With all the negative things we always deal with in this arena, I thought that it was ever so important to share a positive story of these two ladies who became best friends because of a website. I am sure Kristin Smart would find this not only interesting but heartwarming.

Gina,

I am sorry that it took this kind of tragedy to link our lives, but I thank God for a true friend like you EVERYDAY. No matter what happens, we always have someone to lean on. I appreciate you and everything you are as a person. You are beautiful on the inside and out! I Love You.

grinI also wanted to say thanks to a certain person, who shall remain nameless, but twisted a wild web of deceit and led Gina and I to our new Friend and Ally....Jill B. grin

Hopefully together we can create the support these families need to have the strength to manage their daily fight to find their missing loved ones.

Kristin,

If only we could have met a moment sooner or live a mile closer, that would give me one step closer to the best friend I have ever had. Everyone should be as blessed as me. I love you too!

Thank Kristen and Kristin for the gift you have given me.

Jill,

What the heck is a Kookiebell??

A Kookiebell is a fake flake online. Fake = Kook

That is a heartwarming story and I'm glad you two have became so close and created a special bond, although it was thru such circumstances. I'm sure all of you have made Kristen very proud.

You all deserve a big pat on the back for what you do.

Sadly enough, I couldn't agree more!

At least one good thing came out of the deal, like you have said in a different form. It brought some wonderful people together to do what they do best.

I love your story.

may you enjoy a lifelong friendship.

I met my very best friend in much the same way as you two did. Several years ago I got very interested in the Miranda Gaddis & Ashley Pond case in Oregon. I was asked to join a website that was involved with missing children. My job with one other gal was to do "research". wink Actually what we ended up doing was both getting carpal tunnel from copying, cutting and pasting missing peoples flyers alphabetically in their respective states. rolleyes Although the board went the way of so many boards, this gal and I have become the best of friends and not a day goes by that we haven't talked.
Even though the internet can be a little iffy at best, I will just count my blessings for the warm wonderful people I have met. smiley

Thanks for such an inspiring story Jill smiley
