Thank you for your kind words of encouragement.  It's things like this that make unbearable days seem brighter!! :) I love my " Vm family".  I feel truly honored to share the name Monique with Latrisha.  Such a beautiful lady.  They are both smiling down on our families ( Our guardian Angels).  Continious blessings for you and your loved ones.

Thank you for your prayers and for signing my brothers guestbook. I am glad that Mr. Simon was arressted and sentenced i wish my family could be that lucky to know who murderd my brother and to see justice be served , but unfortunately we do not know who did this and the police have given up searching.

But i know I serve a living God who is mighty and able to do all things. I know God will bring justice to us and to all of those out there like us in this situation who are suffering a loss and searching for justice.

God bless your family and your angel tricey

Dearest Christy and Angel La'Trish,

Thank you so very much Christy for reading about my daughter and signing her guest book. It means so much to me when someone takes the time to learn about her life. She is so much more than the way she died.

The memorial you have made for your beautiful Angel La'Trisha touches my heart. To read of her tragic death, the beautiful children left without their Mom, her whole family left to grieve for her. Sometimes words are not enough, but they are all that I have and I am so very sorry.

When I read of the sentencing, all I could think of was finally, somewhere justice has been done. It does not bring back your Angel, But this monster will never again walk free. Thank you God.

We are so close in the days that are Angels left us Christy, and I will never "get over" it, as some suggest that I do. The pain, although not still so raw, is always present. My love for Stephanie will always be there. I knew her first, I felt her heartbeat first, I loved her first. I write to her all the time. It is my way of coping.

The home that you and your family have so lovingly restored is such a beautiful tribute to your Angel. You can be sure that she is looking down with all the love that heaven has to give. You have written a poem for her about "The Moment You Died". I have added a new page to Stephanie's site called In Memory of Those We Have Lost. I would be honored to add Tricey's picture and this beautiful poem to the page. I would be sure to give you credit for the poem. Please let me know.

Thank you again Christy, for the beautiful words you wrote, as you said, I know that our Angels are at peace now, and I know that they are with us always.

I will keep you forever in my prayers,

Jean....For Always and Forever Stephanie's Mom

As I read through this memorial my heart is breaking for everything you and your family have gone through and for the loss of such a beautiful person.  What a horrible monster to take away such a precious life.  I am so sorry for what happened. Tricey is beautiful a soul and the love you all have for her, and her love for you, is so apparent through all the heartfelt words in this tribute. It is the strength of that love that will keep you bound for life and will always keep Tricey close. I pray that each and every day you are comforted by feeling her love. Thank you so much for visiting Sara's site and for your kind words. God bless you and your family always...

I am sorry for you loss of Tricey. Thank you for leaving a message on my guestbook. I want you to know that I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Murders is senseless. My Uncle who was in a wheelchair was murdered in 2000 by a peron high on crack. Then I lost my brother to a drug overdose. Tragic deaths are the worst kind. Tricey is a beautiful woman and I will pray for you all.

"An astonishing person, with an authentic heart of priceless value, afar from ones imagination or perception."

A quote from my husband Jay's impact statement. How accurately he describes Tricey... No one could have said it better!

Hey Girl!!!!! I went to the sentencing and it was amazing to see Kourtney talking s*&^, knowing he's getting ready to go to prison for the rest of his life...While Jay was talking he couldn't hardly stand it, he even got antsy when your mom was talking...I couldn't believe Jay or Trell remained so damn calm through it all...Eveyone really did good!LaLa looks like you and the girls, it'a amazing, she's so pretty, I guess she got it honestly!!!! A day doesn't go by that I don't think about the best friend I had, the one that was taken from me, I should have told you I loved you that Friday I talked to you, but had no clue that would be my last good-bye!!! We had our ups and downs, but through it all, we stuck together, weknew what was best for us...The friendship of a lifetime, to honor, cherish,love, forgive and mend. Forever my homie, my best friend, my sister.....YOur Littlest Friend Kia!!!!! Always and Forever-Fab 5 Lives on!!!

I am so happy for your family and the sentencing given to this MURDERER, he is not worthy to be called a man. I pray that  God will somehow put it in the girl's dad heart to allow you guys to be a part of their lives. They need that sooooooo badly. I know God is a just God.  At least life without parole with allow him to suffer and think about what he done and how it changed everyone that loved Trisha's lives. Hopefully while he sits in a small jail cell, and times passes, some other inmates will hear of how he cowardly murdered the mother of his precious daughter and left her alone while her other daughters were only a short distance away. I thank you for allowing me to visit your beautiful memorial page honoring La'Trisha. I commend all of you for your fight for justice in her honor. Continue to uplift God, he will guide you. Your faith will see you through your hard times.  My heart aches so bad for your family. Although I've never meet Trisha nor the family,  I truly feel as though she was a part of my family in some way. Maybe that sounds weird, but it's the truth. I give God all the honor and praise for the entire Pruitt family. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can't heal. God WILL make it better in due time. TRUST and BELIEVE only in HIM!!! Keep your heads up and continue to hold to Gods unchanging hands. Until the next time, you will be continually in my prayers. STAY STRONG!

Dearest Christy, Jay and Angel Latrisha,

 I can hardly hold back my tears at the news!!!  Life without Parole!  Everyday of his miserable life he will wake up each morning remembering why he is where is, and where he will die one day!  God's punishment!!  His life now tormented!  Sweet is the sword of Justice!   I know this doesn't bring back Latrisha, but her soul is now set free, she knows all is well and she can rest!  Jay, Christy, it has been a pleasure getting to know you, pray with you and talk to you.  I feel as though you are an extended family now and promise to always be here for you!!  May God please you and your family with comfort and peace, watch Momma's welcome page tomorrow for a special tribute!  Rest In Peace Angel Latrisha we love you and will remember you always!

Toni (Daughter to Angel Bonnie pierce)

Hey Duck... Just a little over 30 hours to go before sentencing... We KNOW you are with us and we KNOW that you are watching. We miss you soo much that we can't even accurately describe how our hearts ache for you...  We are going to do everything we can tomorrow to make sure that Kortney will die in prison. I know that will not bring you back (how I wish it would) but that is the least we can do. Now that this is almost behind us Jay and I are going to start working on your non-profit that he started in your memory. We are going to start doing our best to change domestic violence laws and bringing awareness to the problem. We can't change losing you- but we can make sure that you did not die in vain. Even if we save one life, one family from having to endure the pain we feel- that is enough. We are going to start speaking at schools, as well as on your friend Mr. Michael's talk show- we are going to go forward full throttle to try to address this issue. I love you my friend... I hope you are proud... I will make sure you are always included, always remembered and always honored for the rest of my days... As long as I have breath I will speak your name- I will share my memories of you. I will never forget you or what you brought into my life... I love you with all my heart Duck... Love, Christy

Christina, first I want to offer my sincerest condolences on the passing of your LOVELY sister, La'Trisha.  I am sick over what happened to La'Trisha.  I could not imagine the pain you and LaTrisha’s brothers are feeling. When that sister bond is close it can be one of the best relationships ever. The pictures of your family are beautiful, you have a beautiful family, I am glad you have each other.  I am at work now, but as soon as I get to my home computer I will sign your petition and write to any of the contacts you have listed. I pray God's strength for your entire family, now and as you endure your court dates.  Also, Christina, I thank you visiting my granddaughter Chloe-McKayla's page and leaving those thoughtful comments.  It was so wonderful of you to reach out to Chloe-McKayla’s Mommy, as you unfortunately know how hard this time is for her, as you too have survived losing your children to stillbirth. I hope your Angel Babies have met Chloe-McKayla in heaven. Thank you for sharing your journey, I have the utmost respect for all of the MOTHER’S WHO HAVE LOST A CHILD, there will never be any words describe how much I admire your strength and fight for your sanity and life after the loss of a child. As the grandmother of an angel baby I am devastated by her loss, and can only pray that the pain lessens, it hasn’t so far.  Christina I wish you all the good in life and none of the bad, God Bless you. Sharone`, Chloe-McKayla’s Grandma

A beautiful memorial for a beautiful person.  She may be gone, but never forgotten.  I am sorry for your loss and pray for justice with you.

03-24-2009 7:47 PM -- By: Christina Pruitt,  From: Birmingham AL  

Hey D-worth... You're on my mind so heavy today... I thought this was suppose to get easier as time passes- but it doesn't my friend... WE MISS THE HELL OUT OF YOU... Some days are better than others- but EACH and EVERY day WITHOUT YOU is STILL PAINFUL- and PAIN FILLED... I NEVER imagined that we would lose you- that thought NEVER crossed my mind... I find it so DAMN UNFAIR that you did not get to live out and enjoy your life. It ANGERS me when I think of all that YOU had planned for YOUR LIFE that you will not get to accomplish- It ANGERS me when I think of YOUR LADIES growing up without their Mother... The magnitude of what we lost 11/24/2007 cannot be measured. Strangers that did not have the priviledge of knowing you could NEVER possibly understand. You effected the lives of EVERYONE fortunate enough to be a part of your life. There are people in this world that you will NEVER recover from losing- you are one of those people. Some people you lose and barely realize their gone- Losing you has effected our EVERYDAY lives. Not a moment in my day passes that you are not in my thoughts. Next week we are going to sentencing. We are suppose to be happy about "getting justice"- let me tell you no matter how we have tried to look at this- The only JUSTICE we would be happy with is if the Judge would somehow have the power to overrule your death sentence and we know that isn't possible. Jay is right - this is a somber victory. I'd much rather lose the case and have you walk in the door- Anyhow- I just really am missing you today- not only for myself- but your daughter's, for your brother's, for your Momma- Witnessing their pain has only increased my own. You never want those you love to hurt- When you hurt someone I love you in turn hurt me... I love you man! You will forever remain in my heart... I will NEVER let go of your memory... Sending you angel (((hugs)))-  Christy

03-23-2009 1:43 PM -- By: MARY,  From: PITTSBURGH PA  

THANKS SO MUCH! You're page is so awesome you are in my prayers for healing to take place. Its so hard when you lose someone so suddenly without notice. It takes time for the shock to wear off but weeping my endure for night but joy does come in the morning light. Her children,my husband, and the rest of her family are still waiting for the morning light.

but say in thankfulness that she was.

but the putting out of the lamp
because the dawn has come."

Still keeping the Pruitt family in my prayers. Trisha was blessed to have people in her life that loved her so much. Justice will indeed be served.

Hey Aunt Tricey. I'm just informing you on how much you are missed by the family. Last month, my momma got a tatoo of your name, butterfly and your death date on her back. It is really pretty. She and my daddy are going back to get another tatoo of you. I bet it will be just as pretty.

Love you lots. I'll see you some day.

Your Niece,

Cydney Pruitt
