Her name was Kristy Woolwine not Kristi Wolline. She and Bryan-not Bryant- (who was 38-not 48) were separated and going through a divorce.

Bryan and Kristy were friends of my husband and me. I have known Bryan since he was a little boy as he was my cousin's best friend since childhood. I wrote sent al.com an Email this morning and told them they needed to get their information straight before printing it. Bicki, if you are Krisy's sister, she gave me your phone number back in March 2006 since I was being sent to San Antonio with the Army. If you need to talk, please let me know.

How many children did they have and how old are they? Does anyone know who will care for the girls? I know Brian doesn't have any family left except for one sister.
God be with them all.

I think what he did was far more than a "mistake" he made. He killed the mother of his children and left them orphans. That is not a mistake no matter what frame of mind you are in. I feel bad for what he has put his family through and Kristy's family but especially how he could do that to his own daughters. He didn't just shoot once but four times at Kristy and in the head. He gave her no chance of making it, he knew what he was doing. Just because he was controlling and so jealous of her didn't give him the right to do what he did, nor should the fact that he killed her be dismissed. I am just happy that now she is not with him, he can't hurt her anymore and she will never be afraid of him again. She was finally breaking free trying to have a good life for her and her children and then he did this to her and her children. His family and Kristy's need prayers and deserve them but he doesn't deserve to be remembered as anything but a murderer. If this offends anyone it is just simply the truth and no matter what drove him to do this no reason is good enough for what he has done. Their relationship was rocky and they both were at fault at times but there was no reason for him to do this. The life he has left for his daughters to live and the pain they will go through does not give him the right to be remembered as anything other than the selfish murderer he is.

God bless you too, I really wasn't directing that towards anyone. I am just so angry and was venting and writing how I feel. It is going to be a long time before I'm not angry. I know one day I will have to forgive him but right now I never see that day coming. I am just sooo angry at him. This is just the way I feel right now.
