Today is Friday Feb. 26, 2009.  I came across the article about the trial.  My heart aches when I look at the pictures of Tricey and the girls. My prayers are with your family at this time.  Thank you for letting us share with your family the wonderful pictures so that we can put a face with her name.  It really did touch my heart.  I will be thinking of all of you in the days to come.  Keep on with the hard work, it seems to be paying off.  If you had not gone the extra mile and found the prior convictions there is no telling what might have happened.  Tricey's death will not be in vain.  There's no telling how many women you and Jay have saved.  Thank you, it could have been my family if you had not gotten him off the streets.

To the Pruitt Family,

My heart goes out to you and your family on this day.  I am a graduate of Jackson-Olin and was completely saddened by the loss of La'Trisha.  I am so touched by her story because I just can't imagine my husband and 15 month old daughter (borned 2 days after La'Trisha's untimely death) here without me.  God works in mysterious ways but he always comes through.  There is no equal justice, but know that GOD has spoken and his Will is done.

 TO:  I'll remain anonymous,  From: Birmingham  

Thank you so much! Fromt he bottom of our hearts- you have no idea how much suffering this family is enduring because of the decision Kortney made to take Latrisha "Tricey" from us...  There is alot the jury did not get to hear- but I am glad that you came back with a GUILTY verdict... Thank you , Thank you, Thank you... If you would like to talk to the Pruitt family in private you may email me at     c.pruitt78@yahoo.com

02-27-2009 1:49 PM -- By: I'll remain anonymous,  From: Birmingham  

I couldn't understand (at first) why I was chosen to be on jury duty for a murder trial, until after the fact.  I KNOW now that I was placed on it for a reason, and for a GOOD reason.  my conscience is not at all bothering me, from the verdict that I came up with. I will remain anonymous, due to the fact that I should not be discussing the case, but I do want to send my condolences to The Pruitt Family.  By the way, please tell Aniyah that she did an AWESOME job in her testimony!!! I would love to meet her (as well as her two sisters).

WOW! My heart is so saddened when I see a precious woman losing her life to the deadly hands of a man. I am so sorry for your loss. May God continue to bless your family and those beautiful girls left without their mother. I truly hope that scum bag suffers for what he done! I just can't seem to understand why these coward men feel the need to take a woman's life or anyones life for that matter, but the mother of your child. That is one crime that the sentence should automatically be the ELECTRIC CHAIR. They don't give these women a chance, nor can the families go visit and talk with them. No remorse for them! Continue to care for her kids as you are and know that Jesus will work it out. May his soul rot in hell for his sin.

Wow, tomorrow is almost here... How do you really prepare for something like this? You can't... I know no matter what sentence is handed down it won't be satisfactory... I know some have said they have forgiven Kortney- I just can't understand that- I know I don't have it in me- I know how much we have lost and I know that Tricey's 3 beautiful ladies will grow up without their mother- that right there is enough for me not to forgive him... I see a family torn in 2 because of Kortney's actions- I can't forgive that- I never will... Does this mean I'm not a christian? I don't think so- I do believe that there are some acts in this world that are beyond our forgiveness- this is a prime example... We as a family are suffering EVERY DAY. I guess people need to remember not to do things that they can't take back- that they can't change... As a family we have already been handed a life sentence 11-24-07... We were sentenced to life without Duckworth (Tricey) for those who love her- you know what I mean and for those who don't- think of the person closest to you- that is a part of your everyday life and imagine in a split second they are gone because someone decided to play God... Even then you won't understand not until that thought is a reality and you are walking in our shoes... Please pray for the Pruitt family this week- we are going to need it...

Hey Girl!!!!!! Once again it's your goofey friend Kia!!!!Just stopping by to say how much I miss you.....It's amazing how time flies, I always talk about you,with Orlando,my Mom, D.J.,Eric or anybody who would listen!My most and best memories always included the "The Crew" or the Fab 5. If everyone knew half of the stuff we did, they would think we were bad or out of control, but we were just young and having fun...I talked to Jay yesterday and it's always a comfort knowing that he stillaccepts me, thanks Jay!We had a friendship of lifetime, one argument between us all and the rest of the time, it was with other people...You had a huge impact on all of us,you let us know,man, you wrong or you need to to have faith or just anything positive...WHY????I never thought in a lifetime, I would loose a bestfriend, that would turn my life around forever......Tricey, I know you are with me most times and a lot of time I always ask, what would Tricey tell me and I could never come up with nothing, because it's not the same than you telling me...Kortney robbed us of a beautiful soul...Well, gotta go for now, love and miss the hell out of you!!!! Your littlest friend Kia!!!!!

02-17-2009 2:48 PM -- By: Christy Pruitt,  From: Birmingham Al  

Hey Duckworth! I can't believe almost 15 months have gone by without you... Wrap all of us in your angel wings and give us strength as we prepare to go to trial... Personally no matter what happens I will never feel like justice was served... Justice would be having you back with your ladies and with us... So to me true justice isn't possible- neither is satisfaction of justice served. Satisfaction would be turn back the hands of time and save you- that would satisfy me... We sit and talk about all the memories we have with you and we realize not only how much fun we had together but also we realize what a major role you played in each of our lives... I feel so fortunate to have had you in my life for the last 15 years... I watched you grow into a beautiful, intelligent, unforgettable woman as well as a loving mother any child would be honored to have... I agree with Jay we all were cheated, we all were robbed... Period... Your absence , your silence- is killing us! Jay misses you so much that words can't even describe what he is going thru- I try to console him - but how do you console someone who has lost 1/2 of thier soul? I have never witnessed a sibling bond as tight as what you, Jay & Trell shared. I don't think most people could even fully understand the bond you 3 shared because it is so rare... Jay has always been so proud of you- I hope you know that... He has always said that there is no better sister and friend in the world... In knowing you I believe that... I know i'm only your sister-n-law but I have always said that I feel like your my little sister too... I wish I had just one more chance to tell you how much I love you and how much you mean to me... I miss you sooo much... How I wish we could go back and change the outcome of that night... I know we can't do that- but what I can promise is that Tweety is going to be fine- I promise your voice will be heard in trial- I promise that you will not be forgotten... Period... I got you Duck! I mean that... Forever missing you... Love Christy

P.S.- I got your name tatted on my shoulder (since you always had my back) I'm going to gt your picture added when I find which one I like the best... You are with me always!

, Hey Babe,just stopping by to say a quick hello! I miss you and I love you....All things are well,including the family,hell, even me, I'm fine!A lot of times,driving home from Ensley, we would talk,about GOD,life and the HATERS!!!!!You were the one that made me realize that there is a GOD and I just can't give up,without trying to make it work....You made me a believer and I thank you for that!!!!!! I know I don't call,but I know it's already hard for them not to have you and me being one of your best friends calling would make it worse,cause when you would see or hear one,you heard us all!!!!! Time flies,it was just yesterday whenwe became the FAB5,those were some good times... Gotta go for now, I love and miss you-------Always and Forever,your littlest Friend KIA!

This is so sad reading how LaTrisha was taken away from her beautiful girls, and her family. I know that justice will be served in this case simply because kortney have done so much wrong in the past. this is the end of his rope. He needs to be hung and then  have his remains burned in my oppinion, but vengeance belonge to the lord. Im praying for healing for the family, and that her girls will one day betogether.

Dear Christy,

I just wanted to tell you that this memorial changed my life. I have added a petition to my brother's memorial as my own cry for justice.

Thank you for giving me some hope.

Poem for Hope
A Hong Kong Proverb

As long as we have hope,
we have direction,
the energy to move,
and the map to move by.
We have a hundred alternatives,
a thousand paths and infinity of dreams.
Hopeful, we are halfway to where we want to go;
Hopeless, we are lost forever

With love and compassion, julie

Thank you for sharing Angel La'Trisha's life with us. It helps to know that others understand the feelings when you lose someone you love as a result of domestic violence. The Butterfly Effect sounds like a beatuiful cause. Great job Jay & Christy you have done a great job taking care of your sister. I am sure she is very pleased with her family's effect on her behalf. God Bless you.

 "God doesn't give you the people you want, He gives you the people you NEED - To help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you into the person you were meant to be".

What a powerful statement... We know how true it is- because loving you and losing you has changed the landscape of our lives forever... Missing you as much today as yesterday...

Hey my friend,long time no hear from,I know,don't be mad!!!!

2009 is here yet you are not... :0(  It's killing us inside- not to be able to share our lives with you anymore... I know no matter how much we pray, how much we love you, miss you and need you we can't bring you back... The numbness is gone and reality is setting in- losing you is so permanent and final... I wish we had an opportunity to appeal to a higher court, a higher God to reverse your sentence... Criminals get that chance- why can't we? In a way your big brother is at peace- he knows that he showed you how much he loves you while you where here... He didn't wait until you died to bring you flowers and cards... He did that while you were alive... I found all the cards that you kept from your birthdays, the girls birthdays, Mother's day, baby showers, all kinds of stuff... The majority where from us (doesn't surprise me) I also found pics from Tweety baby shower... You where just smiling and we were having a ball! You tore up that spagetti I made! Funny- Tweety loves it too! I miss you sooo much Duck... This holiday crap isn't right without you... I feel so helpless- I have always been able to fix things and for once here is something that I can't fix- I can't make it better, I can't replace what is broken... It's a hurtful thing to know no matter what I say or do I can't change what happened that night.... We live with the outcome of that night everyday- not a day goes by that we don't think of you a thousand times, not a day in our lives goes by that we don't speak your name, not a day goes by in our lives that we don't feel the pain that losing you has left us with... I can still hear your voice , your laughter... I try to remember the sound of your voice so it doesn't fade away... I will never allow your memory to fade... Best to believe that! Sending you angel (((hugs))) up above... Missing you like crazy chick!!!
