From Joe's writing

She had said her prayers every night for as long as she could remember, but since Tanner’s death praying had been difficult at best. She believed in God, Jesus, and of course the blessed Mother Mary, and she still had faith, but it was harder. If God existed, why would He allow the creature that murdered Tanner to exist? Surely it wasn’t one of God’s creatures. But God saw everything, didn’t He? How could He let something like that – something that had no right to exist in nature – destroy her brother? How could God take away the one person she always knew she could count on?
