Ladies and Gentlemen of the Parole Board:I do not believe there are words to even begin to describe the pain, agony,and fear that my family and I have been forced to live with since March 21,1991. Seeing that the only weapon I can use currently is my words, I willcertainly do my best to convey what has been lost, and continues to bevulnerable since that life-altering day.I was only nine years old when I came home from school and to my surprise,found my mother’s parents at our home to take care of us until my mom anddad got home. I immediately knew something was wrong, but I had no idea itinvolved my grandparents being murdered and my aunt hurt and abused.Life went from being safe and carefree to being scared and cautious in aninstant. I went from being a child to an adult overnight. Now life is filled withconstantly looking over my shoulder, waking up in the middle of the night tothe smallest noise, and having to be much more wary of people than a youngadult should have to be. Everyday is a challenge to not have this memory atthe forefront of my mind, yet it continues to happen.I remember the peach coat my mom was wearing when she came home thatnight, and the way she hugged and kissed me like she thought she wouldnever see us again. I remember my dad’s tearful eyes while he tried toexplain why they were gone so late. The utter confusion and anger as to whysomeone would want to murder two special, loving people has never fully beresolved, at least without a sane and logical explanation. It is not as thoughthey died in a car accident, or because of cancer or some other naturalcause. No, they were brutally killed by George Harding Lovie, with absolutelyno reason. A murderer that should have been kept behind bars when he firstassaulted my aunt, but was released on a ‘promise’ that he will not go nearher or the rest of the family. Due to someone else’s mistake and shortfalling, I now have to live my life constantly on guard that history will repeatitself and the offender will murder again if he is ever released from prison.
