Dear Mrs. Kazen:
This letter is
being written in support of the attempt to STOP the
possibility of parole for Rickey Carter, State ID
06227942, TDCJ ID 01009150. If the Board of Pardons
and Paroles have the opportunity to each stop and think what
it would be like to have lost a child to a drunk driver, I
presume that they would still not be able to imagine what our
community and these families have been through due to the poor
decision made by
Mr. Carter to get
under the wheel of his truck that evening. Our precious girls
lives were taken and because of him the lives of thousands of
people will never be as they once were.
Our visits to the
cemetery are all we have to look forward to. We will never
have the opportunity to share the things that God had in store
for us with the gifts he gave us through his and our girls.
He intended for us to share high and college graduations,
engagements, weddings, children and grandchildren but Rickey
Carter and the devil himself robbed these families and friends
of ever sharing that with these deceased girls.
that has been brought about due to Mr. Carter is more than can
be imagined by the human mind. Families have split, finances
have created stress that will never be overcome and lives of
friends and community have not and will not ever forget Lacey,
Staci, Mandi, and Whitney.
This message is
not being written for revenge of this man, only to see that
justice is done in this case and hopefully many to follow when
wrong decisions are made in our court systems across the
world. Please take this opportunity to make this man serve
his time for the decision that he made to drive drunk!
Thank you for
your time and consideration in this fragile and very important
Mike and Sheryl
