Thank you all

As most of you know I have been going through one of the hardest things I have ever endured in my life the past few months and that is saying a lot.  I just wanted to take a moment to let those who have been kind enough to comment and message me regarding the parole hearing of my mother's murderer.  It is finally over for this go around.  The hearing was held in Mountain City, TN at the prison where he has been incarcerated for 28 years.  My brother, his son, who is 20 years old, and myself sat in the same room with this man for the third time to hear him tell what he did to our mother and my nephew's grandmother. It is the most sicking, exhausting thing you can imagine to endure, but you have to do it.  The Tennessee Parole Board has 7 judge members and we must obtain 4 of their votes to revoke his request for parole in order to keep this cold blooded murderer in prison.

I received my official letter from the Board of Parole this past Monday, June 17 and it states, "the release from custody AT THIS TIME WOULD DEPRECIATE THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE CRIME OF WHICH THE OFFENDER STANDS CONVICTED OR PROMOTE: (you think!??)




 I know you can't read this, unless you have better eyes than me...
For those who have no clue about this process, and I sure wish I didn't, it's pretty lame. But, I am very grateful for a three year extension of his imprisonment and justice for my mother's death.  It's all we have, but three years is certainly a short time when it comes to this.

I just want to thank you all for your love, caring, prayers and support during this time.  I hope I have a little piece of my life back and hope to be more in touch and more involved with my blog.  I've missed you all and my blog.

Love and hugs to all...

my mother's 88th birthday was June 2, two days before this hearing of the man who killed her.


  1. I am glad it went the way we all wanted it to go, it should be at least 5-7 years between these hearings. Rest up and relax now. xo

  2. I'm glad it's over for another period of time and that he wasn't paroled.

    I didn't know...
    I'm so sorry to hear of your pain.
    And I'm so glad this horrible experience is over for you for now.
    I can't imagine why you have to go through this again in three years!

  4. Ginger,
    Sending you a BIG HUG during this most difficult time in your life.


  5. Bless you, my friend, I cannot imagine enduring the ordeal that you have described. Consider this a big hug ((())) for you.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  6. I'm glad they decided in favor of justice (and common sense), and I'm still hoping he gets shanked within the next 3 years so you can stop getting dragged through this. :)

  7. So happy you can put that behind you now!


  8. Ginger, I had no idea. I am so sorry I haven't been here to support you. I am so happy that it has turned out well for you. I hope and pray he is never released. xo Laura

  9. You can put this stress behind you for a little while. There ought to be a better way of determining parole which doesn't require the victim's loved ones to endure the retelling. My heart goes out to all of you.

    If you want a little distraction, I've given you a blog award, head over to read the post when you have the time. Have a good summer, Ginger.
