The car radio yesterday morning reported on the funeral to occur later in the day of 5-year old Nevaeh Buchanan of Monroe MI. The reporter mentioned that the little girl used to enjoy visiting one of her favorite sites, the immense equestrian statue of Custer that sits just north of downtown across the River Raisin. A murderer had put an end to that.
Today's daily mentions a similar idea, that "the mile-long funeral procession [went] past the parks where she loved to play and a statue of George A. Custer sitting atop his life-size horse, a landmark she admired." Freep
So much that is heartbreaking about little Nevaeh -- "heaven" spelled in reverse -- and a life cut short.
