Mindy -- "You will always remain in our hearts, forever.   Rest in Peace"

Mindy was a close childhood friend and loving daughter, mother, sister and aunt.   Unfortunately her life came to an abrupt end on November 4, 2005.   She was raped, brutally beaten, suffocated and left to die in a local park in Erie, PA.  

As a tribute to her life and family, this memorial was created to inspire all women and children to take charge of their personal safety.   We have many great memories from the past, and they will be forever treasured.   

On July 17, 2011 (nearly 6 years after her death) Mindy's killer was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
