Today my daughter, Heather called and told me she had gotten a message from Sgt. Andrea Hardeman. I will be calling her Monday.
I haven't been on this page in a very long time. It's funny, after so many years it's still very hard... I'd like to thank everyone for such kind words. What a difference it makes to know my Daddy is still thought of! Not one day goes by that I don't think about him and miss him, sometimes I don't think the pain will go away~
An update on Johnny Leroy Harris- After many years of trying to meet with him, we were able to get a mediation granted. Along with my brother, Vince my daughter, Heather, mother and myself we were able to meet face to face... My brother and I talked to him and asked many questions as my mother and daughter were pretty quiet. I know for a fact, as I did that day, that this man looked us in the eyes and blatantly lied to us about what took place that night, I didn't care. I knew better and so does God!
I'd like to say that the board of pardons and parol have been extremely good to me and very caring.
After our mediation, some were very surprised to hear me say- Let him go. I knew in a way I had to forgive. For so long, I worked on petitions and always in contact with the board. I've still not healed, maybe I can one day, maybe not. It was just so much... Please understand that nothing was to much for our daddy, I just felt like it was time to let go. I know Daddy understands and that was all that mattered to me.
Thank you all for your continued support and God Bless our law enforcement, they are faced with an uncertain and cruel world even more so today...
