To Garland, on this "13" day of September:

Jesus said in John 8:32, the truth will set you free. In your case quite literally.

I believe Ross would have been 30 years old today..February 19th...and I believe a year older than his mother when she gave birth to him. Truly such a terrible senseless tragedy that will haunt forever... to Ross and family..... XX

Ballentine got a 33 year sintance. After serving to years he was eligible for parol on 4/7/12. but he was denied. I think this tragedy is awful and he can take a life and get out in less than doing 10 years of his sentence. Is that justice to taking a life? What would your life be worth?

Sounds like you are whistling a different tune, since you had to come clean and let the world know that you saw the whole thing! I think that (the law enforcement) should hold you accountable as well. you should be siting next to your brother where all you Ballentines belong....

Noone knows what really happened that night but God and Garland and Ross. The one thing I know is Garland and Ross was friends. I am Garlands wife and I begged him to stay away from Ross. Everytime Garland was with Ross he came home high. Im not blaming Ross but its the truth. Ross had no water and Garland and his 2 brothers would let him come to our homes and shower,eat and wash clothes. The first time Garland got in trouble in Megargel was defending Ross. Now when it was all said and done my husband went to jail and Ross was at my house when I returned that night. After he started a fight and it got ugly Ross ran to our home and let me and Garland to defend ourself and our then 13 year old son. So don't say anything about Garland because one thing he was always a friend to Ross. I know I seen it with my own eyes. Yes it was a sad situation for both families. We lost Garland and Ross's family lost him. I pray daily for his family. I pray daily for ours as well. In the end we all lose a loved one and nothing can change that but I do know these two where friends. I don't know why folks want to act like Garland is such a monster. He was just the same as you and I. Drugs change peoples thinking and their actions not their heart. We have suffered just as much as the other family. God Bless The Broken Hearted And Those That Never Know The Truth.

Have heard the same thing thru grape vine. Think they were the ones that were doing all the burgularies and thefts in Megargel. Arian Circle is a pretty rough prison gang. These guys came out of Waco and moved to Megargel
Well since you know so much you should know Ross was also an active gang member as well. He was a scorpion and them guys harassed me throughout the trial and after it was over. Garland was no better or no worse than Ross. When Ross had no running water he came to our house to shower and wash his clothes. I would think that this maked them friends. Garland worked in the oil field and took care of our family. You people that don't know your elbow from your ear might want to shut up every chance you get.

I know that is BS Garland had many "hook-ups" in Wichita Falls where he purchased drugs, without Ross being there. That doesn't even matter there should have never been a life taken. We all know that Garland had a temper, and it wasn't the first time he had been in trouble with the law. He also shot at a peace officer of which he just got out of prison for. He has a rap sheet bigger than Ross ever thought of having.
Ross might have been headed down the wrong path but he didn't deserve to lose his life! My heart goes out to the Richard family,and you all are in my prayers....God Bless You
What does his arrest record have to do with anything? Garland was arrested on three counts of aggrevated assault for defending Ross. This is because Ross started a fight and ran off to our home and left me, Garland and our then 13 year old son to fight 15 people. You really should know the facts before you start running your head. Garland and his blood brothers where there for Ross when no one else was. The fact is they where friends. I pray for both families daily because we all lost a loved one. Shut up when you don't know what your talking about. I have since moved on but Garland is a great guy and he worked his ass off to provide for me and our children.

Garland Wayne I love you and I know first hand that you was a friend to Ross. I dont know what happen and I don't care. I just wish you would have listened to me. I begged you to stay away from him. Everytime you was with Ross you got into some trouble. I am sad for our family and for Ross's family. God is the only one that can judge you. Ross rest in peace.

Let me tell you this sir Garland worked everyday but Sunday so he did not have to commit crimes. You must have overlooked the fact that the person doing all the thefts and breaking into vehicles was a Keller. You must be a dumbass if you think Garland is any less than you or anyone in Archer county. He is a great person and worked and provided for our family. Now shut up and get the facts straight before you let your alligator mouth overload your hummingbird ass. jerk

he ran over three people? then why wasn't he in jail? instead of out on the streets? I'd think if someone ran over three people that he'd be in lock up and not out and running around.
ok look i wish i would have know of thus web page way earlier but the night soneone was hit or ran over they where fight back and fourth and to be correct they had road blocked straight across. Hell when ure little ure parents teach u to stay out the road and they hade big pipes and etc. so my theroy is u see lights from a big oil truck coming get the fuck out road. just saying dont play chicken with something bigger than u.
