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.

YOu know what?
That is absolutely true!
I hate him and will for ever!!!
Who ever wrote this pease tell me.
I'm wondering who finally got the truth about my dad out.
I miss my mom but he needs no reputation but the title murderer.

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.
Yes, I am Kristy's sister. I forgot all about posting this comment...but a friend told me that I should check out some of the comments that have been posted.
Are you still in San Antonio? Did the # that Kristy give you end in 2786...if so, the # is still good.
Time does make things easier, but none of us will ever got over this. Bryan has caused so much pain to so many people. He took away a loving mother,a beautiful sister, a life loving friend, and just an awesome person from all of us.

The girls are still going through so much and they need so much love and happiness...they just are not getting it. I will never hate Bryan...I hate what he has done...but I will never hate that man. He was a good person that loved his girls and his family. He committed such a selfish act, but when can't dwell on that...nothing will bring either of them back.

All we can do now is come together as a family and take care of the girls. This is not happening. The girls are not allowed to talk to Bryan's family...and I have been told by the girls that they want to talk with them, and the girls can only talk with me while they are being monitored. This is wrong and just so wrong for the girls! The need the love and support of all the families. Bryan's family loved those girls and Kristy loved Bryan's family. Bryan's family has been so much a part of those girls life until this happened. They did nothing wrong!! They didn't kill Kristy.
Honestly, I think if Alan had not taken Bryan to Kristy's house....I really think Bryan would have killed all of them. About two years ago, Bryan told Cindy that he was going to drive his truck through my mom's house and kill himself and Kristy...Cindy called the police on him and reported it. She called Kristy and warned her and then she called suicide prevention and they called Bryan and talked him out of it...Cindy loved Kristy, too! If she would have thought he was going to do something,,,she would have called the police and Kristy. I know it with all my heart.

The girls need all the love, support, and understanding that they can get. Both families should be standing together to support these girls.

to start with i want to say i love you girls as my own. i know your dad was controlling.he meant well. all he did was care for you all. it dont matter what my name is i knew for a long time.i do know this he never cheated and was always a loyal man what he did was wrong but is his mind that was the only way he could be with the one he truly loved. it is a two way street it takes two to make it work. and i do know this only one was trying and im not saying who bacause they are not here to defend themselfes. i am not judging but some more effort on one side could have avoided this . in no way am i saying that was right but on the other side was it right also.

you might have known what was going on, but to say it was one sided is completely wrong. yes it is a two way street, but he treated her like crap for years and after the girls came along she couldn't get out of it. i hate that she is gone but she will live on in her girls.
