Vickiís Story

Those of us who were here in Parker County on December 19, 1998, can recall the horror that was inflicted on our community when a drunk driver took the lives of four young teenage girls.  One of those young ladies was Staci Lee.stacy-lee(200)

The following is the heartbreaking story about Staciís mom Vicki, as written by her father.

____________________________________

Vicki lost her mother at a young age and her grandmother and father raised her and her siblings. Nanny taught her everything in life to be a mother and Vicki learned this very well. She was a great mother and a great wife. Everything had to be perfect and was. After she lost Staci, Vicki was lost also.

Her grandmother taught her everything in life but no one can teach you how to deal with grief! Vicki prayed to die and go to heaven with Staci and the girls. She would have killed herself but through her teaching of the faith believed she would not get to heaven that way.

For 12 years Vicki was lost, living on the street, drugs and much hardship she finally turned back to God. Her sisters and brother got her into the church her brother in law preached at. She became very involved and after a year of forgiveness she was with her new church friends and had a heart attack.

I had not seen her in a few years but I went to the hospital and spoke to her. I told her I did not blame her for the way things ended and that I knew that Ricky Carter had caused all this. I told her she had been a great mother and wife and I still loved her. She never woke and passed away that evening.

Vickiís prayer was finally answered and God took her home to be with Staci.

The preacher always said God can fix a broken heart but first you have to give him all the pieces. Vicki gave him all the pieces and God fixed things and answered her prayer.

Always remember the great things about Vicki Ė how she loved and was a great mother to Staci.

I still love you Vicki and Staci,

David Lee

Rickey Carter's reckless disregard for the safety and well-being of others resulted in the destruction of four innocent families in our community.

Consider the PRICE each of these totally innocent families paid for the CRIME Ricky Carter committed.  

We urge you to write the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles and express your opposition to parole for Rickey Carter.  Speak up for the four angels who cannot speak for themselves.  They could not be protected from Rickey Carter, but we can protect others by insisting that Rickey Carter remain behind bars!

Ricky Carter, why did you change your name from "Rickey" to "Ricky".  Was that an attempt to make it more difficult to identify you upon release, as a convicted felon on parole since the name on your drivers license is Rickey Carter?
