White Bear Lake resident, Mary Rondeau Westra, is the author of After the Murder of My Son, her memoir.

Time stopped for Mary on the hot, humid morning of July 8, 2001 when the sheriff and chaplain arrived at her door carrying the devastating news that her son had been murdered. Always intensely personal, Mary's words trace her heartbreaking journey from realization to recovery as could only be seen through the eyes of a mother.
