We knew this day would come, but we still hoped that it wouldn't. Just when the pain and grief were starting to subside a little, this all will be opened up again. I hope and pray that whoever takes care of these appeals, can read between the lines just as the jury did at the trial. Please pray for our family, and especially for Pam, Ed, Jenny, and Katie. May God give us all the strength to get through whatever lies ahead.

An appeal has been made
In a madman's defense
His rights were violated?
That doesn't make sense.

I thought it was you,
Who had been treated bad,
But, not according to law,
And that makes me sad.

With that guilty verdict,
We thought we had closure,
But it all comes back,
Into public exposure.

May God be with us,
As this trouble approaches,
And give us the strength,
That we need til it's over.

We thought that when
We laid you to rest,
That we could all start to heal,
And now comes this test.

When this new burden
Has finally ceased,
Then maybe you can truly

We are still fighting for you.
Lori, Collin, and Angelina :(
