Please know that my prayers are with ALL of you. Because deep down I know that none of you ever wanted anything like this to happen to our loved ones. Let us take better care of each other and when we see one of our love one having probelms lets not wait until it's too late to get them the help they so desperately need. I know that Calvin loved Keisha, but I regret that he didn't realize that sometimes love means letting go. To Whitney I would like to say baby I feel your pain I was a daddy's girl too. May God bless each of you.

For the sake of the children I hope that the truth will brought forward and justice will be served. However, we may not actually ever learn the real truth and you all have to do one thing and put all of this in the hands of the God. The main issue that everyone should be concerned about is the children. Some will grow up without a mother and some will grow up without a father and I feel for ALL of them. To the Hall family, I do feel for you and hope that you will eventually find closure even though I know that it is hard. To Keisha's family, I didn't really know her or her children personally but my heart goes out to you all as well. I did go out to the Hall's house the day that this tragedy happened and I remembered seeing her little boy's face and I wanted to cry. It is my hope and prayer that as the days go by you all will find strength to carry on. To the Stokes family, I personally believe that there maybe someone else to blame for this and hopefully the answer will be found. I've know and I don't find it in his character to do something like that. For the family member of Calvin that lives in Atlanta, I don't doubt that Calvin was loving or giving but there are many of us (myself included) who are raising our kids by ourselves with the help of our family and hats go off not to just Calvin but to everyone out there who are single parents including Calvin's ex-wife who has the kids and I am sure doing a great job as well. May the forthcoming days bring peace to all!

My thing is I'm a deputy in Atlanta and Calvin is my uncle. One thing I will say is that my uncle doesn't have or never had a control issue or I don't believe that he put a gun to his wife's head. I grew up around my uncle all my life and never would he hurt anyone. He was always given and helping others. To the basterds who killed him and his wife know this I want sleep until it's over and I promise you want get away with this. To my grandmother the brothers and sisters I love you all God be with all of us as we deal with this madness. To Keisha's family I have never met you but she was a great woman she helped me with my wedding to my lovely wife and I appreciated her for that. Thank You. Any comments [email protected]

I am very close to Jerry Stokes and Barbara and the children, there is no way that I believe that
Jerry was involved. Jerry is a very loving and
Jerry was in the wrong place at the wrong time. If anyone really knows Jerry that as long as I been
a part of their lives have never been violent or in any trouble. Jerry and Barbara are sincere in their heart and when they love someome that person is very much apart of their lives. The love that they have for life is very precious to them, so I said we all should pu in God hands and he will solve everything and the guilty will be brought to justice. I don't understand, when this first happen, in the paper was that Jerry was not involve but later all this evident appears. I said to the other families, you may never forget but God can heal all wounds, It will take time for everyone. I will continue to keep everyone in pray and that the Lord will ease your pain.

You say that no one has contacted you to check on the kids but that is a two sided argument. Both families has lost someone special and dear to us. Both families can pick up the phone and dial numbers. Do you have any love for Calvin since you seem to doubt that anyone could love Keshia?
<quoted text>
I spent alot of time with all 5 kids because Keisha is my aunt and I babysat for them alot. I love all 5 of those kids and til this day i wish i could see Calvins girls but the facts still remains they took my aunts life and we still hurt. We only wish the best for his girl and do love them dearly. My aunt was killed down there not here at home or by accident so dont question our love for anybody. So if all of you loved her so much then where were you when her life was being taken or when we needed a shoulder to cry. I realize you lost someone too but it was not at the hands of Keisha it is vice versa so you all need to pray that GOD forgives yall for all the pain have caused my family....

My heart goes out to his and her family. I know your hurting right now and have been for that matter, however, his family did not do this crime. Blame him and only him, they to are grieving for a family member. maybe not in the way that your are but in another prospective. From your post I gather that you are a God fearing family and followers of God must forgive. I pray that God be with all the families involved!

Forget Stokes's family Calvin's death has been brought to rest with his family but what about Keisha's family. We suffer everyday not knowing what happened and why. Stokes's chose to do what he did and now he should be punished not only by the justice system but by God also and he will be if he doesn't repent. So I really don't think his family feels half as bad as Keisha's or Calvin's in that matter so you can save your sympathy and pity violins for somebody else.

I agree we need to stop pointing fingers now ans pray for one another...But the fact still remains that my aunt is gone and i do forgive because thats the only way I am going to make to heaven to see her again but I will never forget he pain is still as strong today as it was the day I lost my aunt. Thanks for your encouraging words thats more than I can say for some other people...Goc be with you and may he bless you

It has been almost three years now, and this thing is still as far from being resolved. As a mother who lost her child all I want is closure so I can maybe have a little peace. The new DA in Metter I pray will bring this case to trial in the new year so we can try to go on with our lives after some of our questions are hopefully answered. Know that I am in pray for everyone involved in this tragedy. May God continue bless all of you

I believe in America we are innocent until proven guilty. It is my understanding that Jerry Stokes has been arrested, NOT convicted. We should feel empathy for all families involved, Jerry's, Calvin's and Keisha's. Let's hold our judgements and accusations until the proverbial "Fat lady sings," for all is not always as it appears to be. If you have an ounce of brain, put you thinking cap on...Who benefits the most from Calvin's death - What reason would Jerry have to kill Calvin - Why did Calvin's mother want the investigation stopped...There are still more questions than answers.
What idiot would say that my mother wanted the investigation stopped? Please speak FACTS where do you people get this stuff? I mean you say that you have not spoken to OUR mom so how do you know that she stopped it? This is the first time that I have read these comments, because frankly I was devastated over this entire incident. You probably have never had to experience such, and I really hope that you never do; but trust me you really need to keep your comments to yourself if your intent is to bring pain to others. How can there ever be anything beneficial about the loss of a loved one? YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR THINKING CAP ON, BEFORE YOU CONTINUE OPENING YOUR TRAP ABOUT SOMETHING YOU DON'T KNOW A DAMN THING ABOUT.

Obviously you are not too intelligent either and you guys need to stop the lies because it is really strange to me that if you all were so concerned that Keisha was in such danger why didn't "You" her, family visit her down THERE as you call it. ANSWER THAT!!!! Before you make accusations find out the facts, because you were not the one who lost a child, Darn, you guys really gripe me, I mean be sensitive; my mother has been through enough. In the end it will be ok though because you Jokers will get back exactly what you give. THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN!!!
