From every ending, there comes a new beginning.
Jessica’s parents, Doug and Stephanie, are now working to rebuild their lives. It’s a process that begins by tearing down the family home.
“Over the last few months, in addition to dealing with the loss of their only child, Doug and Stephanie have had to move from their home of 15 years and battle with their insurance company about their house,” Julie Logan explained on www.giveforward.com, an online fundraising site.
“The insurance company wanted to just repair the damage, the Scholl's want to replace the home so they don't have to live with that final horrific memory. Their only wish is to stay in the place where Jessica grew up, but not have to live in the house where she was taken from them.”
The insurance company eventually agreed to demolish the house, but fell short of covering a complete rebuild.
There’s a long way to go toward their goal of $40,000. Donors have given a total of $595 to date. But they’ve also posted well wishes.
Although the fundraiser will close on February 28, 2013, donations or discounts on goods or services are also being encouraged.
Jarod has appeared in court a number of times since Jessica’s murder. He next appearance is scheduled for December 12
The family still hopes for another ending, which they hope will come after a judge and jury hand down a verdict. Then, maybe, they can embark on another new beginning.
