I was involved in this, and though I doubt the family involved will ever see this, I never meant for things to go so far that night. I know that what we took from you was irreplaceable, we took your Christmas. From you, your children, and your family. There's nothing that can be said or done to make up for it, even though I am facing the charges and am dealing with the legal consequences of this. But even with that, it doesn't make up for it. I don't know what I could ever do to have you forgive me, but I truly am sorry for what we did that night. The day after it happened I turned myself in, so it wasn't a "I'm sorry because I got caught" thing. Things really got out of hand that night, and when I should have stepped out, I was an idiot, and an asshole, and decided instead to commit that crime against you. I know that someday soon, most likely in court, I'll have to confront you personally on this, and so all I have to say is that I am sorry, I wish I could take it back, and I will do whatever I can to make things right, or as close to right as possible.
