    Wife Of Kaufman TX. District Attorney was a quilter

    Cynthia McLelland, the wife of Kaufman Texas District Attorney Mike McLelland, who was recently gunned down in their home with her husband, was a quilter. Her friends and family speak of her as a beautiful person in every way, and an avid quilter. One of her quilts was on display yesterday at the memorial service, and it was beautiful..............such a sad story.

    Life has no meaning to some people. Hope when they find who did this he spends forever in jail.

    This is so sad. We watch it on the nightly news and am so sad about this. So unnecessary. I am glad to know she was a quilter so at least the family has that to remember her by.

    I heard a very sad Lady on the news say she had quilted with this Lady.
    So many senseless deaths, makes me very sad.

    I just do not understand how people can be so mean. I feel so horrible for the entire family, friends and community.

    This is awful -- it amazes me that some people think nothing of killing others. I pray for the family and the community -- healing will be a long time coming.

    I read the account of her husband's death all the way over here and was appalled at the way it happened. Actually, I think the story I read said they both were killed. Another man in their company was killed earlier and it all sounds so senseless.
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!

    Yes, GramMER, she and her husband were both killed in their home. An assistant DA was killed a few weeks earlier. The DA and his wife were said to be a special, loving couple who helped many along the way. Cynthia McLelland was a quilter, who is said to have loved anything connected to quilting, and taught quilting locally.

    A senseless waste of life. These were, according to all accounts, wonderful and caring people who used their talents well. We have all suffered a loss when this kind of tragedy happens. My thoughts are with their family, friends and the community.

    We have the death penalty in TX. If they find the vermin, that is mostly likely what he/they will get.

    We have a relative who suddenly passed away recently. One of her quilts was draped on top of her casket beneath the spray of flowers. It was a lovely tribute. So very sad about the Texas family.

    This was onef my DH's countys. He works for the state & knew these people. (not wife) Sad day when people can't even do their jobs with out being harmed or killed. This poor lady, how sad & her husband too. Since it was Easter weekend I hope her children didn't find them. Somebody will pay for this.

    We live in an evil world and according to the Bible it is only going to get worse. I believe when our country made abortion legal they sent a message that says human life is expendable and we are seeing just how far reaching that thought process has taken us. From the very young to the very old and everyone in between. It is a shameful evil thing that we have become.

    I agree be a quilter. There seems to no longer be respect for human life.

    He will spend forever someplace else too. They think they can get away with stuff by killing off the prosecutor. Nutso!

    When caught TX will fry them and good ridance to bad rubbish. Too many think the laws and rules of decent society do not apply to them and I am sure whoever did this was paid to do it but some evil person looking at years in jail.

    We have the death penalty in Texas, but that may be too good for him. Maybe spending the rest of his life in prison would be more difficult for him.
