I'm happy this is finally over it has been a very long and hard road for my very speacial friend and foster grandmother to my son Marvin. Helen can hopefully get some closure at this time, but you never forget the loss of a child.

This is really hard for me to write as I had thought of Rusty as a friend of mine. I have know him for over ten years, and he was always a perfect gentlemen, but I did not know him 34 years ago so anything is possible. To the family of this young women my heart goes out to you. You all can now rest knowing that someone is finally paying for your Mom's life being taken so young. You need to all stay close and know that you Mom will always be with you, and watch over all of you. The guilty always has to close there eyes at nite and will meet his maker at the end. God Bless your family. Not all of Rusty old friend's are bad people, we were fooled as well.......

What kind words but Helen was not Barbara's mother ! And Helen will not get closure, she is and has been in the dark with this entire trial from the start. She thinks Rusty is innocent, there is only closure for Barbara and her family !

I know what your family has gone through. My family has waited 15 years for justice and now we have it. May Barbara rest in peace.

As a criminal justice major, nothing makes me more happy than to see these sick lunatics put behind bars. Although it will never bring your loved one's back, I can only hope its a step in the direction of some peace. May they rest in peace, and may you find the strength to overcome the pain and sorrow this has had on you & your family.
