Hi my name is Samantha Machal, i am 19 turning 20 September 12, 2012. I am engaged to the most wonderful man i have ever met. i love him so much and with everything i have gone through, he is my emotional rock and my biggest support aside from my dad. he makes me happy and i dont know what i would do without him.
About my Loss:
i lost my mom on june 8, 2007 to stage 4 breast cancer and just recently on july 8, 2012 my only maternal aunt was shot and killed by her ex boyfriend in front of me and my fiance. our lives were threatened because he pointed the gun at us and told us he would shoot if we didnt get out of the house. the only reason why we were able to keep our lives was because he had run out of bullets. he shot my aunt 7 times in the chest.

"I am not Jeff, but I think I can answer as well, since yes: Those were things I experienced.
I have cried so hard that I got sick and would almost vomit. I have thought of many things that would be so nice if they claimed my life at that moment.
