a moment to reflect on the hit-and-run death
of Michael Morlang one year ago this week.

out there, somewhere in the great expanse that is Canada,
the person who drove the car that ran over and killed
Michael Morlang on Frank Kenny Road in the early morning
hours of August 11, 2013, is going to bed every night
safe in the knowledge that they haven't been caught --
Morlang isn't able to enjoy the same luxury. She hasn't
had a good night's sleep since her son was killed one
year ago, the day before he was to celebrate his 31st
I don't think it gets easier, I think I miss him more
and more every day. I miss his hugs, I miss his smile,"
some point today, on what should have been his 32nd birthday,
Kathy Morlang will release 32 balloons in the sky above
the spot where he was killed.
the spot is marked by a small memorial which Kathy often
visits with her husband Brian Visneskie. Each time she
prays that the person behind the wheel of the car that
took her son's life will turn themselves in to police.
Short of that, she continues to hope that someone with
knowledge of the car or the driver will come forward with
information tht will help solve the year-long mystery.
a recent interview with CFRA, Kathy made a direct appeal
to the driver who she feels might be suffering as well.
don't hate you. I may learn to forgive you. But please
come forward so that you also have closure and that you
can also learn to move on with your life because I am
sure it is also difficult on (you) too," she told
the radio station.
have reason to believe the vehicle that struck and killed
Morlang was burgundy in colour and either a 1997-1998,
or 2003-2010 GM make.
