This is a story about a wife, Sheila Smith, who was struggling from a bout with depression. Sheila had the perfect life with a devoted husband and two children, a son, Julian age 6 and a daughter, Sarah age 8. The family enjoyed their family outings together and were the perfect family so everyone thought. Sheila ended up with an affair and her family murdered with little justice for the act.
One exquisite warm sunny summer day, Sheila Smith was not thinking clearly. She was thinking that her life was out of balance and that she could not see a way out of her hectic life. On the outside, everyone saw that Sheila had the life that one could only dream of. She had a beautiful family with a loving devoted husband, Jim, a son, Julian, age 6 and a daughter, Sarah, age 8. Her son, Julian, was full of life. Julian was in the first grade and loved school. Sarah was in third grade, and she had many friends. Her children were excited about school and they loved taking trips on the weekends camping with their parents.
Sheila’s husband Jim was a financial broker of sales at the local car lot. Jim and Sheila also have their own bit of rental properties they manage together. The family enjoyed family outings together. Sheila was depressed with her life even though she had everything she needed and most of what she wanted. Jim had no idea how depressed Sheila was since she covered it up and masked her depression that she was struggling with. For whatever reason, Sheila had not talked with her doctor about her depression and therefore, there wasn’t a record of her depression.
