Dad, It was not the "prisoner" who killed you. It was a law enforcement officer. The "prisoner" did not have a gun. I hope that the person who really killed you was haunted for the rest of his life because of the murder he committed. Your wife and three daughters continued life without you. We had a little brother who was born about 7 1/2 months after you left us. I was so young when you left us, and have no real memories of you other than that you were my dad. After all, I was only 11 months old. A couple of friends, who knew you personally, told me on more than one occasion that "your daddy loved his little girls". I have a taken comfort in that knowledge.

Love from your baby girl.
