Hello, 

I'm so sorry that justice is not being served at the moment. I just wanted all the families to know that I've been praying for them everyday. On December 19, 1998 your worlds cam crashing down so much so that it left a hole in your hearts. I know that that hole will never heal but your process in healing has been put on hold with Ricky Carters parole. In my heart he deserves more than 20 years, he deserves what they would have given any minority, life for each victim. I'm a 20 year old college student and I'm a firm believer in God and his plans for people lives. There's this one saying that I live by and love, it goes, "The character that is the strongest, god gives the most challenges," so I say the families, believe in him. Families I also wanted you to know that garland I.S.D puts on a program every year called prom promise. It's for the students if they choose to make a promise to themselves and there peers to not drink and drive, do drugs or have sex on the night of prom, they could sign a card. The program consists of ER nurses, Firefighters, and parents who have had kids taken away by drunk driving and even parents who kids have killed because of drunk driving. It's a great program and it's a true reality check for most of us. At the end of this program, there's a slide show full of accidents, parents crying, limp bodies all of this with Sarah McLachlan's I Will Remember You playing in the background. It's always sad to see someone you went to school with or someone you knew on the slide show. I wanted to let the families know that this slide show contains the site and crosses of there loved ones. I hope this did not offend or hurt the families in any way, my sole purpose of telling you this was to let you know that students make promises to this slide show every year. Me being a 20 year old college student its hard to keep everyone I know from drinking and driving, but its not hard to hide there keys' :-). I just wanted you guys to know that I never let anyone I'm with that have been drinking drive, I'm always the designated driver and I get other college students to be it as well. In my dorm room I contain the article of your love ones accident and I hang it up on my wall to remind me to be responsible. I never knew any of the girls but I did have the joy of spending a summer with one of the families. To the Osina family, it's been a long time since I've seen you. I've often wondered how you guys were doing. I'm sure you probably don't remember me it's been 3 years since I've seen Emo. Mrs. Osina you are one of the nicest people I've ever meet. Since the last time I seen Emo, I often wondered what she was up to, how school was going, and how life was. I would love to hear from you guys. Mrs. Osina you are truly an angel, I knew it from the first time you hugged me. Thank you for making a difference, without even knowing it. 



Sincerely,
