My grandson and my daughter will have a legacy that far outlives our lifetimes.

Overall, over the last year or two, most parties have down-sized and people are being more modest in selection of food.

We want you to keep seeing her face and we want somebody's conscience to be seared because our lives are forever from this point different.

I doubt very seriously that any of those that oppose this bill ... had ever had the experience of standing over their grandson's casket and kissing him on the cheek and telling him good-bye, knowing that the state of Alabama doesn't even recognize that he is a child.

If you know him, if you heard anything, please, we are begging you for closure, we have got to have some closure on this case.

I don't know how to express how happy I am.
