I listened to this podcast because the title included Making Peace with my Sister's Killer. In 1980, my sister was killed by her husband who then committed suicide. I have never hated my brother-in-law for what he did even though he brought unbelievable pain to my family and his. I just finished reading Jeanne's book and it has inspired me to do something I honestly can say I have not done. I will pray for my brother-in-law and ask God to forgive him.

BTW this short Pod cast is very good but it does not come close to the story that is told in Making Peace....I could not put it down even though I admit I cried through most of it.
