“While I would love to be living back in San Diego and its easy-on-the-weatherman 70 degrees and sunny everyday weather, I sure do love the four seasons here,” an Oct. 7 post says.

The blog also displays a photograph of a certificate that Avielle received when she completed kindergarten, a picture of snow and images of her birthday in October. The last posting was of the Stamford, Conn., Thanksgiving parade on Nov. 19.

The family lived in the Mira Mesa area, but it was unclear exactly when they left San Diego.

Neighbors living on both sides of the Richman’s former Mira Mesa home taped letters to their front doors.

“Avie was a beautiful angel and her spirit will live on in the hearts of those that loved her,” one neighbor wrote. “God bless all the victims and their loved ones. May our nation find peace as we grieve for their lives lost.”
