I had moved back to San Antonio before there was even a trial and have been wondering all these years about what happen w/ the father. Reading over these pages brings all the emotions back to me. Gracie could always me you laugh and smile, I miss her.

I am so sorry for your loss of your two beautiful daughters. It just breaks my heart to know that you have to go through this grief. My daughter Cynthia Tammy Hernandez was murdered by a boyfriend she only knew for 1 1/2  months. He shot her and my life ended also. You have the right to feel the way you do, you are not selfish. Murder is not something you just forget it's with you for the rest of your life as it will be with me. My daughter was 20 yrs old and would have been 21 on July 29th. She was murdered on 6/11/99. I know your grief I can't even sleep at night just thinking of my daughter. So I can imagine what you go through missing your daughters. The murderer who murdered my daughter received 19 to life sentence. I feel so angry at times that I can't think, I just pray that God will be with you to comfort you. He is the only one that will take you through this very difficult time in your life.

Word's cannot even begin to express my sympathy for your family! There are some truly disturbed people in this world. I have always believed in an eye for an eye (just my own opinion). As a parent I can only imagine what your family has been put through, to loose one child is un-imaginable to loose two has to be truly unbearable. My thoughts are with you and your family, not only Birthdays & holidays but everyday. Again I'm so sorry.

If I was in your shoes those guys would of never made it to court, I don't think I could trust the justice system. A lot of people get off too easy, I think every murderer should be sent to death.

In Canada we do not have the death penalty, and in my high school I had to do a debate about the death penalty being reintroduced. I was violently against the death penalty until I was forced to debate for it, and I stumbled upon your site. Dennis and Delton Dowthitt do not deserve to live. They took your daughters' lives, and they should pay with theirs. I send my condolences to your family and pray that your daughters are in heaven with god.

There is no words that can describe the sadness that my heart felt when I read this story. The memorial that was put together for them is absolutely beautiful. I just wanted to say continue staying strong and trust that the lord will bring you and your family through this unspeakable ordeal that has been placed on your heart.

Words cannot express the sorrow I felt as I read your story. No one really knows of the tremendous pain unless they too have experience the loss. I myself am going through something similar, because my father was recently murdered by my brother. Just getting through the day has become a major obstacle course for me. I cringe at the thought of the upcoming court proceeding when I'll have to face my brother for the first time since this has happened. Let me pray for you and please pray for me .God bless you.

In 2000 my daughter was picked up, raped, strangled to death, then thrown out of a truck, like garbage, her killer never found. My niece was shot three times, stabbed ten times in front of her 20 month old daughter in 1982, then thrown out on the side of the interstate by her husband and his homosexual lover. serving a life sentence in a Tenn. State Prison at present. 3/24/05 My nephew was on his way to work - a normal thing for him, and a car pulled up shot him for no reason, he tried to drive away he hit an embankment, car catches on fire, he had 3rd degree burns on the body he lived four days, never found his killer.

I stumbled upon your story on the web. I have read it and I am truly shocked and beside myself to know what your family and loved ones have been through. I am one of the most paranoid mothers and to read your story makes it worse. I have three daughters and just thinking of something like this happening I know will send me into an early grave. We vow as parents to protect our children at every cost and we give it our all. But lurking in the background of our protective wings is the devil. I will forever hold your family in my prayers. May the Lord give you special blessing each and every day of your lives. Angels are what your daughters are now "Angels in waiting for you" ......

I pray that you have been able to grieve and receive peace in your lives since this horrible tragedy. Thankfully, our system worked and your daughters' killer received justice. May God minister to your hearts and continue to console and heal your family. I pray blessings of the Lord on all of you.

I cannot begin to fathom your pain. I am not a mother having given up a son for adoption, but I still have a Mother's heart. I am weeping from the very depths of my soul for your pain. Your babies were truly too beautiful for this toilet we call Earth. They are with God now, never to suffer the hurt of this cold, cold world. Please take comfort in knowing that you will indeed be reunited with your little treasures again in the next life. God has promised this and as you know, He never breaks his promises to us. You will remain in my heart and prayers....also know that the monster responsible will spend eternity in unimaginable torture and pain, as he so deserves. I don't know about you, but that helps me to feel a tiny bit better-but not much.

I graduated from Oak Ridge H.S. in May 1990 and knew nothing of your daughters until reading this story. I looked up Grace's picture in my yearbook and she was beautiful.

I came by this site by accident, but had to bring you some comfort from the lord, and although I don't know the circumstances of what happened, all of the letters I have read are very uplifting, and although it has been many years, it seems, the same thing remains, they are with our lord and savior Jesus Christ, i'm sure if they were ever in heaven before they were born here on this earth, and the lord asked... is there anyone here who could love these two wonderful people enough to be born to them, and to die such a horrible death, so these two beautiful people could become to know Christ on a different level in which they already have? the lord did not do this to you, but he sometimes allows things to happen so we can become closer to him, and i'm sure if the lord would have talked to your girls before they were ever born, they would have gladly went through , what they did if you could gain eternity with them in heaven, they took a part of you all with them when they left this earth and went to heaven, don't let them down, live your life for the lord so you can all be together again one day... may god bless your family, and I hope I didn't offend you by writing this, but it came with love from my heart and I hope it brings comfort to yours.

My God, I pray for your losses, the terrible untimely matter to which these beautiful angels were subjected too. My biological mother Evelyn Edith Kebalo was also strangled and sexually assaulted by 3 men in the wee hours of April 19, 1977. I was never able to meet with her and get to know her again, after having being removed from her custody when I was only 3 1/2. This all happened in Winnipeg, Manitoba. To this day her murders are free and this is still an Unsolved (Cold) Case. Very sad knowing this. It may be only slight good new that the murderer in this case was apprehended. That will never give you back your angels. Surely they are together in the embrace of God, or what higher power they believed in. My heart goes out to you all. All my best to you, sincerely, Darlene Oldale Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada

I have no idea if we are related in any way to these Purnhagens, but the similarities are there. Mine and my daughter's prayers go out to the victims and their family.

I cannot express the anger and sorrow I feel at reading the tragic and terrible deaths of both your daughters. I will pray for you that you shall have some peace and the monster that still lives gets justice. I have been through the terror that you have experienced before as I was also the best friend of a girl who died in a very violent manner and it was a high profile case. I can honestly tell you there is not a day I do not think of Faith. Her death like Tiffany's was a brutal violent one and just like Tiffany's one scum bag got the death penalty, the other life. I miss Faith just as much as I did 24 years ago when she died . What makes me mad is the self righteous people who have the gall to protest against the death of your daughters murderer- I have never seen so much disrespect, sadly it is not uncommon, Faiths parents Vernon and Elizabeth Harvey had to deal with the same thing from the witch of a nun who has the gall to call herself Christian. Ms Helen Prejean. I cannot understand how people can stand up for these murderers. The only thing that makes me feel any at peace about the whole situation is the thought that your beautiful daughters and my best friend now 24 years murdered are in the loving arms of god. Hopefully they are hanging out together. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR DAUGHTERS. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS. I LOVE YOU FAITH. DIED MAY 198O. Killed by Joe Vaccaro and Robert Lee Willie.

Hello. The story of your two beautiful girls had me in tears. As the father of two precious little girls, I can't begin to fathom your loss. Why does such horrible things happens to God's little angels? It is at times like this that I wish i was not even a part of the human race, but instead a butterfly fluttering about on a warm summer day. It is so obvious that the world needs people like your girls here on earth. Thank you for posting the picture page, for a brief moment i smiled at the wonderful baby pictures, and those mega-watt smiles that your daughters were blessed with. If only for a moment because then the realization of your loss once again hit me like a ton of bricks. My heart goes out to your family and Gracie and Tiffany. You will be in my prayers at church this Sunday. I only hope that all of you will somehow still be able to see the beauty that still does exist in this world. God bless you. Bill.

My heart goes out to Gracie, Tiffany, and family. I will never understand why such sick individuals are allowed to even exist on this earth! Just remember...These two beautiful girls will always live on in your hearts.

I had a dream about Gracie, so I decided to look on the computer so I could find out more about what happened. 14 years ago when this happened I was only 15. I still remember when I found out about it sitting on my couch watching the news. I was too scared to go to the services and I am sorry about that. Anyways, I decided to look up Gracie on the computer and I came across the website. I was looking at the photo album and under the title "Grace-ful" I saw a picture that brought back many memories for me. It was the first time I ever saw Gracie in a dress and she wore it to my birthday party. That picture was taken at my house and I still vividly remember that one because so many of my Elementary school friends had shown up. Gracie, even though we drifted apart through the years, you were one of my best friends in Elementary at Lowery. I miss you and I'm sorry it has taken me so long to say "Goodbye". Love, Rachel (Garcia) Herrera

To the Purnhagens, Last night I had a dream about Gracie and the rest of my friends from Lowery Elementary School and I have no idea why. Well I put Gracie's name in a search engine and came across this website. I still remember the day back in 1990 when I was watching the news and found out what had happened to her--I cried so hard. I am sorry for not attending the services because I was too scared to see that. Well, when I was looking at the photo album on the website I came across a picture of Gracie that brought back many memories for me. It is the one under the title "GRACEFUL". That picture was taken at one of my birthday parties, and it was one of my favorite parties because we actually got to see Gracie in a dress--she looked so pretty. Even though we drifted apart after elementary I still thought of her as one of my best childhood friends. I will always miss her and I am so sorry it has taken me so long to send my condolences. God Bless You All!! Love, Rachel (Garcia) Herrera

I was doing some research on the internet while on my lunch break today and I came across Gracie and Tiffany's website. It brought tears to my eyes and gave me chills. I was 10 years old when they went missing. I lived just down the road in Fox Run subdivision and my babysitter at the time knew Gracie. I met Gracie and Tiffany. I remember the day that Tina, my old babysitter, told me what happened. I just cried and cried. It was horrible to think that something like that could've happened so close to home and to two of the sweetest girls. I don't know how your family survived. I don't think that I could've been that strong. Your family is in my prayers. God Bless You. Cindy in St. Louis.

I've been reading through some of the victims voices, Words cannot express the deep desperation that I feel for your family, I have two daughters, and I try to make sure they are safe, they go to ball games and such as children at that age want to do, I have always been accused of being too protective of them but, after reading a lot of these stories I am not going to change, I feel such sadness for you and your family I am glad that man was executed, and the thoughts of him saying he was sorry only sickens me, Pray for me please that I can continue to keep my children close and out of harms way, I will pray for you that God will give you the strength to get through this cruel world and one day meet your daughters again in a place where they know no pain and suffering, May God be with you and yours, Kristin

I was there during the whole ordeal from when Gracie and Tiffany were missing to when they were found and everything. i went to school with Gracie and only met Tiffany once. I once dated Darla; thats how i met Gracie. I just had a weird feeling the other day and started looking on the web for this... My prayers are still with you throughout this. I am now married and have a little girl age 21 months and could not imagine if something like that happened to our family. I waited outside as Senior Dowthitt died; that was a great feeling knowing that he would never hurt anyone else... I waited for Delton to get the death penalty, even prayed he would not last in prison. There is soo much going through my head right now about everything that happened and the memories that I have of Gracie. My heart is with you and you can e-mail me anytime. I was also with Tim Milstead when we talked to reporters after we talked with you and your husband. Please take care, I pray for you! sincerly, Mathew R. Wegener

I've came across your daughters website about your whole PAIN and suffering that those heartless individuals brought upon your family by some research. I'm was doing research for my mother's correction officers program on a research paper and i clicked on the link that brought me here, I dropped everything to take the time and read your journey to a new chapter in your lives. My prayers are with you. I wish I would of gave my support back then, BUT i was only 5 years old. Now I'm 18 years old and i give my sympathy for the past and my congratulations for the future because your beautiful daughters are in heaven waiting for you all to be reunited, until then may GOD watch over your family!! With love and kisses, JENNIFER..

i am an Oakridge resident and a former humble resident, i am so sorry for your loss. my sister was also raped and murdered about a decade ago, and her body was dumped a few miles for my home by humble high school. the man who did this owns a recording studio in Houston. Fredrick Kober of the 300 block of crosstimbers. however consider yourself lucky for the justice you received. Freddy plead guilty to her murder and received 10 yrs probation. ahh the wonderful Texas justice system. what a joke. so you were one of the lucky ones. that murderer is a free man to kill again.

I wanted to wish Linda a Happy Mother's Day. You are a wonderful mother who has honored your girls well. I just finished reading your website. I am in my late twenties and have one younger sister. My mom had just the two of us. Reading of Gracie and Tiffany reminded me of the two of us. I am so sorry for your loss but am very happy that Gracie and Tiffany are in a better place. As I've grown older I have sadly realized how unsafe the world is. Thank you for sharing your story. Hopefully it will remind another parent to be protective of their child and remind the rest of us to be careful every day. I also think it serves to inspire us all to do more to make sure children are protected and that violent criminals remain behind bars. God Bless Gracie, Tiffany and Your Family, Lisa

I'm not sure exactly what I want to say, except, I have thought of the girls alot through the years, my son, Neil went to school with them and hung out at the same bowling alley, it was so hard to imagine that something that horrific could happen to our neighbors, in our neighborhood. I know we moved to Montgomery County in 1981 to get away from the crime of Harris County. I read Dennis, Jr.'s letter and your response and I have to let you know what a Special Person you are to not be completely consumed with anger. Your children are very fortunate; you have a beautiful heart. God Bless, Sherry

I was browsing on the net looking for possible relatives when I found Grace and Tiffany´s web page. I couldn't help but get shocked after reading the beautiful homage made to them by their mother, where I got to know about the awful way they left this world. I am 35 weeks pregnant, and the love I already feel for my son makes me feel even worse about the fact that there are people out there in this world who think that they can cowardly take other people's lives like that. I pray for your family, and hope authorities will make justice to everything you have suffered through these years. I'm sorry for my terrible English, and hope you could understand my words. Yours Sincerely, Raquel Purnhagen Macdonald

Mr. and Mrs. Purnhagen: I did not know how else to reach you, please forgive me writing about this in your daughters' Guest Book. In order to bring attention to the large amount of children who are raped and then murdered by their rapists every single year and to the fact that almost every single one of the murderers is a repeat offender, I have compiled a book of victims' names and stories. I do have an editor who is trying to find the right literary agent for the book and I have been interviewed by the Montel Williams show about my book. I would like to include Grace and Tiffany in my book. I am not able to contact as many parents as I would like, but the ones I can contact, I do. If you give me an e-mail address, I will send the two pages so you can look them over. I am very sorry for your loss and what it has cost you. Thank you, Sue

Dear Linda and Art: I find it very difficult to read the messages from everyone because they always make me teary. You know I look at all of your kids as my own and to lose Gracie and Tiffany so young has left a hole in my heart, also. Dennis Jr. thank you for your letter, you have nothing to feel guilty about. At least it appears that you are trying to do some good with your life. Keep up the good work that you are doing for yourself, you will never be like your father.

Linda and Family, still being so close to your family, I too think of the girls every day. If your friends still feel the pain and sorrow after all these years, I don't think you are being selfish in your feelings. I have always wondered how you survive and keep going...then I see grandchildren and I know! My thoughts and prayers are always with you as are Grace and Tiffany.

Hello Linda and Art. First, thank you for sending me the link to this website, your thoughts and prayers are beautiful. I really enjoyed the pictures, they brought back some really happy memories of the girls. You know I love you both like my own parents and I love Stacy as my very own sister. To Dennis: Please take what Linda had to say to heart, as I know she sincerely meant everything she said. Again, thank you for sharing these memories with me. As painful as they still are for us all, it is so important to remember Gracie and Tiffany as the happy children they were. They truly did bring joy to each of us. I love you.

Mrs. Purnhagen, I am so sorry for your family. I can't believe someone would do such a thing. It's just horrible. There are no words to describe the feeling. I wish there were something I could do. And, for the son of the murderer, I'm sorry for what you have gone through as well. You are a victim of your father's crime as well, but no one is all bad. I'm sure he loved you very much, and your love for him is only natural.

This is the first time I have written anything to all of you on this site but I felt it was about time. I just want to thank all of you for all your kind words and thoughts. They have been a source of comfort for myself and my family through the years. Dennis Dowthitt, your words are the ones that actually brought me to write. You have absolutely no reason to feel guilty or ashamed for what your father and brother did. Their actions to do what they did are purely their own. They not only ruined our lives but those lives of you and your family. I put the blame on them, as you should, and you should do the very best with your life as you can. Do not go through the rest of your life thinking that we blame you or anyone else in your family in any way. We wish you peace and happiness. You must go on and also stop blaming yourself for something you had no control or knowledge about. Hopefully, your life will be free of any more turmoil. Thank you for your words. Also, thank you everyone. As I've said, all the words from everyone have been a real source of comfort. Sincerely, Linda Purnhagen

I put my own name into a search engine, and this (among many other things) came up. I just did it out of curiosity. I guess I should have known what I'd find. I was thirteen when Dad and Delton went to jail. I don't know if most people remember their first thirteen years well, but I sure don't. Hardly at all, in fact. What I do remember is growing up in what I thought was a normal family, with a normal dad. I guess I can see why he's a "monster" to everyone else, but to me he was just dad for what was perhaps my most formative years. There are things I found out about later, things that were going on during those years, that were far from normal, but I of course knew nothing of it at the time. I try not to think about Dad at all now days. I'm a 27-year-old man serving in the United States Navy, just trying to live my life and maybe do something worthwhile while I'm at it. It's a little difficult for me to look back on all of this and not feel...ashamed, somehow, guilty. It doesn't make sense. But it occurs to me now that maybe this refusal of mine to dwell on what my father did is unfair. Unfair to you and your family. I never contacted you throughout the near-fourteen years since the murder of your daughters. Maybe I should have. But then again what could I say? I don't even know what to say now. When I did this search one of the things that came up was a picture of my dad. When I saw it I teared up because, God help me, as awful as this is for me to say, I miss him. I can barely remember him, but somehow I still miss him. I guess it's that most of all that I feel I should apologize for. I wouldn't wish him back into the world even if I could, but still for me to feel sad or sorry for myself when you guys went through what you went through is just awful of me, somehow. If I could bring them back, I would. If I could help them now, I would. As I would help you, but I know I can't. I was standing at parade rest outside my barracks room at the very moment that they killed my dad, and I remember how awful I felt. I can not imagine how you must feel, even now, all these years later. I am sorry. I can't speak for my father or Delton or anyone else, but as for myself, I'd give just about anything to bring your girls back to you. I am sure you'll see them again. Maybe I will, too. I would probably have liked them both, had they lived to today. I wish you all the best. --Dennis Dowthitt

I wrote to you 2 years ago. Your courage to share your story still serves to allow me to have my civics students consider the viewpoint of victims regarding capital punishment. Your words never fail to bring tears to my classroom. Your words never fail to make the "politically correct" anti-death penalty voices stop dead in their tracks and think more deeply. Your words of courage and your daughters memories serve the youth of today. Thank you. I know you still feel pain. Respectfully, James Chrisfield Syracuse, NY

After reading a story like this one, I go and hug my son. Any murder is a horrid thing, but the murder of a child is especially shattering. All that foolish man had to do was deal with the fact that he almost molested a child -- he might have healed and your children would still be here. Monstrous, monstrous mind of a fool. There are too many foolish and unfeeling people in this world. We all need to teach our children the value of life and respect for the lives and happiness of others. When my 2-year-old cries in pain or cries for me, I see the face of every young child who's last moments are frightened and lonely and painful, and I feel the heart-wrenching pain of every mother who wasn't there to help them and save them and hug them and kiss them or even hold them as they died. Your wish to everyone was beautiful. Please keep sending it out there.

I stumbled onto this site in error. I am so sorry for your loss. Should you need a letter writer to help keep the son in jail for the full 45 years, please respond to this email. I was divorced from my 1st husband when he was killed by an employee trying to stop the rape of a 14 yr old girl. The girl and her 2 sisters along with their father were all killed. My Son is just now starting to adjust to his father's murder, it has been 8 years. I can only imagine your pain. Your pain will never go away, it will dull. My prayers are with you and your family.

I find myself at a loss of words as I try to write this. Tiffany was in my second grade class at Roth Elementary - Mrs. McDonough was our teacher. I didn't get to know her very well, I moved to Spring in the middle of the school-year. She sat next to me though, and she was always very kind. I remember the teacher always said never to borrow anything from somebody and not pay them back. On the last day of school, I had not brought any paper with me. Mrs. McDonough told me to borrow paper from someone in the class, and I insisted that I couldn't because I wouldn't be able to pay them back. Tiffany handed me some paper, and when I said "Thanks," she replied "That is what friends are for." The next time I saw Tiffany, I was in forth grade, and her face was on the news. Her death has had such a tremendous impact on my life - my childhood - even though we weren't close. Her death made me realize that I was not safe, no one was. I prayed every night for my loved ones to not be robbed, raped, murdered, etc. I guess as I got older, my insecurities started to fade, just as anyone else's does. I can't watch movies that are overly graphic on rape scenes - I think some of that comes from the knowledge of what happened to Tiffany's sister. I just celebrated my first wedding anniversary on 10-26-03, and my husband and I have just closed on our first home. This is my first time to read anything about Tiffany's murder since 1991, and I am chilled to the bone. I had no idea that they were killed in Oak Ridge... The house that we just bought - it is in the Fox Run Subdivision, right off of Rayford Road. Seems my life takes me in circles in funny ways. Coincidences like this always happen to me. My intentions of writing this to you are to let you know that your daughters live on in the memories of many others. I think about Tiffany occasionally, and I know where she'll be when you pass away and join her. She'll be waiting in her bed for you to tuck her in. Your family has suffered the unimaginable, and because of this, you are shielded in the prayers of many others. Mine included. -Lindy Herreth Ramsey

I can't begin to put my feelings into words. What you and your family has been put through is horrific. I too have a family member that was brutally murdered and the vicious man is still on death row since 1979. I just tell myself that he suffers daily by living with what he has done and that death would be the easy way out. I live in The Woodlands and will be giving birth to my first child soon. I will fear every day for her safety but enjoy every moment that God gives me with her. You are very brave and your daughters would be proud of you for fighting for justice and for helping protect other children. You have your faith and your daughters memories in you hearts. May God bless you and your family as he takes care of your two little Angels until you are all reunited again.

I've just read all the articles and the story of your little girl and your little lady. I'm only 18 years old and a mother, This is the most horrible thing that I've read in a long time. It almost scares me how mean and cruel people can be. They focused on the father so much they almost kinda put his son off the hook. He's still guilty and he's still sick. I didn't believe in the death penalty until right NOW. and I guess I didn't because nobody in my family was ever murdered. But I hope that god has been with you because now God is only the one that could comfort you. nobody's word could do it. I am going to e-mail John Walsh and let him know that your story needs to be a topic in your show. It might sound kinda funny to you reading me write this but your story has really just disturbed me. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

I hope that SOB gets the gas chamber. Hanging is too nice for the baby killer. It's only the beginning for him, though. The Savior said that anyone who hurt a child-- it would be better that a millstone be hung around his neck and he be drowned in the depths of the sea. So, once this world is finally rid of the scumbag, he has a whole other justice system awaiting him.

I'm terribly sorry to speak this way, but I have absolutely no use for murderers, especially child murderers. I'm sorry for what your family has gone through. I have a niece named Tiffany who is 24. If anyone ever harmed her, I'd see to it that it was the last conscious thing they ever did. I can imagine your grief.

My heart goes out to your family. I live in the Houston area, and I can not imagine such a horrible crime happening, but I know they do. My father is a judge, and he always taught us to be cautious, and always took the "courtroom" home w/him. I cried while reading all the articles. I have a five year old daughter and she always tells me I treat her like a baby because I will not let her out of my sight. After reading this, it just proves you can not trust anyone. I will remember your precious daughters, and your family in my thoughts and prayers forever.

I am so sorry for your loss. I read the whole story and I am glad for you and your family that, that sick son-of-a-bitch is dead.

Gracie, I know that you can hear me when I tell you that you were a strong person and I hope that you give 'em hell up there. tiffany you had to have been the most vibrant little girl.

please accept my sincerest regrets on the loss of your children. I can imagine what you are going thru. I lost my one 25 yr old brother in 1989 and my 2 yr old brother in 1991, both at the hands of others, and the hurt and pain I felt was indescribable. But I'm sure it somewhat pales in comparison to losing someone you created. My mother says no parent should have to bury their children. You are in my families prayers and thoughts. God bless you

I am getting ready to attend the 10 year reunion for the class of 93' at Oak Ridge High School. I look forward to seeing all my old classmates, but my heart breaks knowing that Gracie will not be there. Gracie was a dear friend of mine. I remember always being able to talk to her about any problem I had and she would know the right thing to say to cheer me up. Her smile could light a room. I will never forget the day I found out what had happened. I am crying as much now as I was then. The pain never goes away, it is just lightened. I will always carry Gracie's friendship in my heart. She truly touched my life, and for that I am thankful.

I remember it like it was yesterday. Gracie was my friend when she was nine years old. Tiffany was a baby. They used to play at my house when we lived in Sommerall. I remember the funeral. I remember it was so close after Gracie's birthday. No mother or father should ever have to go through this. My thoughts are still with Gracie to this day.

I would just like to say that I am very sorry for your losses. I can't begin to describe the anger I have for those sick perverts who took your daughters away. It is still hard to believe that people are even SICK enough to do such a thing. I am only 15, but I am aware of what's going on in the world and yet I still can’t believe what happened to your daughters. I know taking the lives of the people who did this will not bring your daughters back, but for me it brings piece of mind. IT lets me know that they are paying the ultimate price, their LIFE. Call me crazy, but I STILL don’t think that's enough. Just thinking about how afraid your daughters were makes me want THEM to SUFFER the way they made their victims suffer. I am planning on becoming a lawyer when I grow-up. I didn't know what type of lawyer, but your story inspired me to become a prosecuting attorney. This way, I know that I AM doing something to help put criminals away. Being a prosecuting attorney would give me the power to make sure the murderers PAY.

You don't have to be sad anymore because we all know that Gracie & Tiffany are in a better place. They are in HEAVEN. Although this is comforting to know, it's even better that they were able to take this Journey together and I am sure that Gracie is still taking care of her little sister as we speak. Don't be saddened by their death, but happy that they are in a better place where NO harm can be done to them. And one day you WILL see them again and when that day comes, you will be together for all of ETERNITY. Just as their murderers will burn in HELL for all eternity.

With my deepest sympathy, Whitney

Gracie & Tiffany will never be forgotten, but always remembered in my heart.

R.I.P. Gracie & Tiffany

I am terribly sorry about the death of your 2 beautiful girls! But at least he was killed for the murder! I would have bitched and sued people until he was killed for taking the life of Gracie and Tiffany because If you kill someone you should be killed, don't you agree! Now I would say 'God Bless you' but I don't believe in god because of all this bad stuff and I was raped, almost killed and abused MY WHOLE LIFE so I just gave up!

I just want to say that even at the age of 13 this story has touched me soo deeply. I didnt even know about this case until I read about it while looking up a murder that happened in small town Iowa and while reading on I was thinking that this happened in Texas right? Well I am going to Houston in November for a church trip and I know that once we get to the airport I will start crying and think about these girls. Nine years is not long enough to live. I kept thinking about what I had done when I was 9 and it wasn't all that much and even at 16 that's not long enough either and I just want to tell you that my prayers are always going to be with you and may god bless you and your family and help you through this very very hard time and I hope that this helped you at all in some way. God Bless.

I am a friend of native@america, and I am aware of her involvement with the parents of victims, and I just wanted to say that by their pictures, they truly are 'Angels' and also wanted to tell you that I said a prayer for your pained hearts. My boys at a young age lost their Dad to an electrocution. Bad wiring in our house. The loss is different, but hurts the same. It has been 14 years now and we still think of him often, as I know you do of your daughters. My prayers are with you. You know you will see them again one day, and they still walk with you in your daily lives. God Bless You.

my sister was choked and beaten, and burnt on Sept. 23, 2000. Cindy Barlowe, of Marion NC. She was 46. I was 45. She is my best friend. I miss her so much. It has been over two years. I vividly remember every detail. My life will never be the same. My sister was murdered by her daughter (17 at the time) and her daughter's boyfriend (21). This family lived in a million dollar home, with everything. My family is totally ripped apart. I am trying to find the truth. I thought the law division was there to support the truth, now I know, it is a win-lose game with the attorneys. We have so many stories about what happened that day. I don't ever think I will know what my sister endured. I do know, she is home now. I know God took her out of there immediately. My heart goes out to you and your family. What a shame that we live in a world where children are not safe, from other children and from adults. I wish you comfort, and the knowledge that you will see your girls again. In a world with no pain. Until then, thank you for sharing my pain for a moment. Maybe that has become God's intent for you now, to open your heart and be there for others. There are far too many of us out here, that hurt beyond belief, due to the hatred in others. God Be with you, and your family

I am so sorry you had to endure this. I am crying as I write this because I have two beautiful babies myself and I cannot imagine what you have been through. The mere thought of it is agonizing. I pray that God will bring you peace. One of my favorite verses from the Bible is Job 19:25-26 which says "For I know that my Redeemer liveth and that He shall stand at a later day upon the earth; and after my flesh is decayed this I know, that in my flesh I shall stand and see God." I think this illustrates the miraculous power of God's love to somehow, even from the depths of utmost destruction, to put things back together someday. I hope it comforts you in some measure to know that your babies are waiting to see you again at a later day in that land where there is no sorrow. Kathy

I am sorry to hear about your loss. I cant imagine the pain you must feel every day. I am visiting your site to get information about victims and the death penalty for a prodeath penalty paper i am writing for a college course. I strongly agree with the death penalty. What has our world come to? I feel that if our judicial system went back to "an eye for an eye" system we would not have nearly as many violent crimes. The two men that took the lives of your innocent children do not deserve their own lives. I hope you get justice!! You will be in my prayers and I wish you the best of luck with your case, and may God bless you and your family. Anjel Thir

My thoughts, my prayers and my soul are with you throughout all you've endured and will continue to endure. My God, one child was more than I could bear....you had 2 beautiful daughters murdered and tortured. How much pain must one mother endure? This is so hard. My six year old daughter was abducted, raped and strangled to death by a stranger from another state, a predator. He left her small, tortured body in a barn loft in Iowa, after taking her from Illinois. He was found in Michigan. He drew a map to her body, admitted the crimes and is currently on death row, awaiting clemency hearings. The death penalty in Illinois is on moratorium, and it looks as though our Governor may give a blanket commutation to a life sentence for all of those on death row. I wish to ask him if he could commute my daughter's and all of the other murder victims a blanket commutation to a life sentence. We, as the families of murder victims, have a life sentence, they should not allow these monsters the same. They gave our children or loved ones a death sentence and should receive no less. We share a bond, belong to a club we never wished to join, that being living parents/families of murdered children. May God give you, us,and all survivors, peace and hold us ever so gently in the palm of his hand. Your site is a beautiful memorial. I would like to do something similar someday, but as I try, the emotions get so strong that I have to stop. Perhaps soon, I will try again.

My heart goes out to you and your family in the loss of your precious daughters. Our beautiful 22 year old niece, Susan, was just murdered by HER OWN FATHER 5 weeks ago. As bad as the murder itself is, the senseless violence of it is almost more than we can bear at times. And then of course, I read a story like yours and realize that it still could have been so much worse. God bless you, honey. I do feel your pain and I know God has His big awesome Guardian angels there watching over you. I really can visualize it, so it must be so. May "our girls" dance . . . eternally . . . and unafraid, in His Heavens!

I'm sorry could never be enough. No words could ever bring comfort for such a horrendous crime or terrible loss. I am 17 years old and came to this site as I searched for material regarding the death penalty. I can only pray for you and that God will protect his children.

I grieve with you. I had a l7 year old son who was murdered in New Mexico on April 28, 1998. The kid who murdered him got off scott free after trial, then tried to kill two other kids. He has a rap sheet very long, and still walks the streets of our neighborhood. My thoughts are with you

I am truly sorry for your loss. I know a little of how you're feeling. This injustice our murdered children are receiving is shameful. My niece was sexually violated in everyway and then strangled to death at the age of 12 by her stepfather JAN.25 1983. He received the death penalty. He still has rights though so he still lives while our Rhonda does not. No this man that took your child's life away from her should never get out. I don't see how they could even justify thinking about letting him out. I don't see how they can justify him still being alive. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May GOD always be by your side.

There are no words that I can say to express how sorry I am feeling for the parents of these two girls. I have a 12 old son, named Nickolas, I can't even image your pain. The reason I came across this website is that I am in a speech class in college and I am pro capital punishment. I am preparing a speech about the death penalty. I want to inform people on how long these murders sit on death row or even worse get out of prison. I believe that it should not have taken 11 years to execute the murderer of your daughter and I believe the other man should die also. I hope that this message didn't upset you. I'll pray for your daughters tonight..xoxoxoxx Lisa Yager.

Dear Purnhagen Family, I was so touched by your memorial to you wonderful daughters Gracie & Tiffany. I am also the "survivor" of a homicide. I know that sounds odd but I don't like the word victim. That word implies that the killer still has control. In Dec. 1998 my father was murdered in his apartment and was not found for three days. I wept as I read about your beautiful girls. I was also pleased for your family that you children's murderer (at least one of them) was put to death. I think you have done a wonderful job memorializing your girls and I am sure they are proud of you too. My prayers are with you and all of your family as we all walk this long journey together. My Best to You all

Some small moments that have helped you to keep moving forward and to let you know that there isn't anyone that can view your website without whispering to God to please watch over your babies until you are called home to Him. Your in my prayers tonight and always and may you find some peace.

I have just read this site for the first time and my heart is sick for you and your continued grief. On this Father's Day may you rejoice in the gift of your other children. I share your grief, even after all these years, and will pray that God will give you strength to face each day without your lovely daughters. I have experienced loss of dear ones but nothing as tragic as yours, meaning mine were through illness, which is what happens, but murder is not what should happen. My love to you!

I happened upon your website on a fluke, upon entering my own child's name: Gracie Marie on a search engine. I wouldn't normally contact anyone on the internet but I cannot imagine the horror you have been through, and I wanted you to know that I am including you in my prayers. I will hold my own Gracie Marie especially close and remember how precious she is. You are so right to honor your children in this way, God bless you.

I had this project or research in English On the death penalty. As I was looking through the information I came across Grace and Tiffany's web page. I agree to the death penalty to a certain point. I really don't know what happened with Grace and Tiffany but I hope the murderer got what he/she deserved. I just want ya'll to know I will have ya'll in my prayers. Don't worry your little angels are in a better place. Away from evil and harm. They are in the hands of the Lord above they know how much you love them and miss them. May God bless all of those who suffered of this tragic event. Keep your head high and just give your worries and fears to the Lord up above us. Anna Cisneros April 25,2002

I stumbled upon your website while I was doing a report on capital punishment, and I can't seem to make myself just continue writing my paper without telling you how deeply sorry I am. I am only 18, in fact both of your daughters would be older than me and that makes me very sad for all of you. You did not get to experience with them so many of the things that I am selfishly stressing out about. No matter what anyone says, or all of the "I'm sorry's" you receive, you will never be out of pain, and for that I will put you all in my prayers. As my Sociology teacher says "Do not cry because it's over, smile because it happened." You had your daughters for a short time but you will have their memory for a lifetime. God Bless You.

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF. I AM 26 YRS OLD. JUNE 20, 1991 MY SISTER WENT OUT AND NEVER CAME HOME. SHE MET A MAN AT A NIGHTCLUB THAT NIGHT AND HE SAID HE WOULD BRING HER HOME. HER DECOMPOSED BODY WAS FOUND 2 WEEKS LATER. HE STRANGLED HER, SLASHED HER THROAT, PUT A BOARD ACROSS HER NECK AND GOUGED HER EYES OUT. HE SAID IF SHE LIVED HE DIDN'T WANT HER TO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY HIM. MY FAMILY HAS BEEN THROUGH HELL THE PAST 11 YRS TRYING TO MAKE SURE THIS MAN IS EXECUTED. WE CAME SO CLOSE ON 2/8/02. 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE EXECUTION HE GOT A STAY. WE FOUND OUT YESTERDAY THAT HE IS SCHEDULED TO BE EXECUTED AGAIN ON 4/26/02. I KNOW THERE AREN'T ANY WORDS ANYONE CAN SAY TO TAKE THE PAIN AWAY FROM THE LOSS OF YOUR DAUGHTERS. I KNOW WHAT YOUR FAMILY HAS BEEN THROUGH. I HAVE TOLD MY MOTHER YOUR STORY AND I WANT YOU TO KNOW YOUR FAMILY WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR PRAYERS.

Linda, and family,

I can't even imagine how you've managed all these years with this terrible horrific burden placed upon you.

My heart goes out to you and to the spirits of your two beautiful daughters, all of whom I prayed for last night and today when reading of your troubles.

I just don't know how you can find the strength that you do, but will pray that you will always have it. God be with all of you, and please know that many of us are remembering you in our prayers.

Every night I always remember those who grieve for lost loved ones, when saying my prayers...especially those who have have lost loved ones in such violent manners as this. I will now put your names and faces on these prayers, as well as the ones I read about constantly and hear about on the tv and radio news shows.

I am thinking of you, Linda. I am praying for you. Dear God, you've been given such an enormous cross to bear, and I'll pray that it gets ever easier to carry throughout the rest of your days.

In loving memory of your two beautiful daughters, I will remain prayerful for all of you,

Dolly Wilson

I was up at College Station when the story first hit the papers and have scanned the net ever since looking for the notice of his execution. While I came across this site looking for an appeal case (for a Masters in CJ for a reentrance into law enforcement in natural resources) and while there is no good expression for this, it is with a positive note that my searches have turned up something about Gracie and Tiffany instead of just him.

Tiffany and Grace have been in my prayers since that time in CS as have you. May you be granted strength and regain the ability to experience joy.

As others I too came upon this website accidentally. Being a 27 year old mom (also born in 1974) of a 5 year old daughter with one on the way, the thought of something like this happening to my daughters makes me quiver in fear. My heart and soul goes out to you for your loss of your two beautiful daughters. It makes me think back to the same time when I was 16 and being twice as reckless and just as trusting and how that could have happened to me or anyone that I knew. It is very hard to grasp that no matter how hard you try to hold on to them, eventually they will still want to go out without you, make their own decisions, talk to who they want to and love who they want to love. Its very scary for me now even with me still being the protector and decision maker. Tonight and every night hereafter, I think I will hug her a little longer and tell her twice that I love her. God bless you and the strength you have to get through each and every day. "Above us all, the angels will fly."

I was just searching the web and came upon this site.... I am so sorry about the horrific loss of your two daughters... I will be 27 in April and I have a 32 yr old and a 23 yr old sister. I cannot imagine losing either one of them....especially in such a tragic way as you lost your daughters (sisters). My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. After reading your story, I had instant flashbacks to my childhood, picturing my sisters and I when we were that age.... I just would go crazy if someone did those horrible things to my sisters.... Rest assured knowing that they are in heaven with God... they would not rather be here... they are looking down on you saying "why are you crying and so sad??? We are in a beautiful place." God is with you and will continue to help you through this... I am so sorry. Love, Lisa :(

To The Purnhagen Family,

I write this to you with tears in my eyes, I feel so so sad for you and your girls. You are all so brave, I don't understand how you go on.

I read your very sad story last year and I think about Grace and Tiffany all the time, I think about your family and how brave you are for carrying on.

I have a little boy of my own, who I adore more than life itself - God forbid this ever happened to someone I love.

I really don't know what to say to you except my thoughts and prayers are with you all - I just wanted to let you know, maybe for myself, that you are amazing people who have come through the most abhorrent and terrible thing that any family should have to suffer.

God Bless,

Amanda

If you ever need any help writing letters, etc to keep these evil murderers in prison contact me. I am sicked by these what these evil men did to your precious girls. Please accept my most sincerest condolences. I am so sincerely sorry for your loss. I know words do not lessen the pain and grief you have, but know that people that do not even know you - care, grieve and pray for you and your family. My best friend's sister was recently murdered - she was 23 and was scheduled to be induced the next day for the birth of her 3rd child. Her 6 year old daughter and 26 yo husband were also murdered. The only witness and sole survivor is Gabrielle - their 5 year old daughter who had celebrated her birthday the day before. I grieve everyday and question what type of evil person could this. Please know you are in my prayers. In memory of William, Danielle, Haley and Baby Arvizu - gone to heaven 10-01-01.

Dear Mrs. Purnhagen

I came to this site researching the death penalty for an argument thesis I have to do for a college class. My major is criminal punishment. When I came across this site dedicated to your daughter's. I was in total shock! I can not imagine what your family has been through but with the grace of god there will be justice. As I read page after page I cried. Your story and your words touched my heart. May god be with you through your journey in life.

God bless you and your family!

Hello. I just happened upon this site and I have read what you have written. I just want to let you know it touched me very deeply and I feel so sorry for what has happened to you and your family. I can not imagine the pain and anguish that must accompany something like this. I hope for your sake and the sake of Gracie and Tiffany, that Delton is kept incarcerated at the very least. My opinion is that once he was found guilty, he should have been strapped to the chair immediately, but that's just my opinion. Anyway, that is all I have to say. Thank you for letting me speak my piece.

I was your daughter Gracie's age at the time of her death and also resided in the Conroe area. In 1995 I met Dennis Dowthitt's daughter, of all places getting psychiatric treatment. I befriended her and we were very close for years. After hearing first hand the torture that this young woman and the rest her family suffered at the hands of Dennis Dowthitt, I was so ill. I spent the next 2 years getting to know her and trying to help her recover from the effects of all of this on her. Darla always spoke so kindly and fondly of Grace and I got to know her through Darla's memories. This awful man has permanently ruined many lives as well as taking two. His death was too easy and nice for such sick ******* like him. God bless you and may you find peace.

Greetings.

This story made me cry. I have two daughters. I cannot imagine your loss and pain.

I thought you deserved to know who was visiting your daughter's site and why. I teach high school seniors a course called Participation in Government in Syracuse NY. I was searching for a site supporting capital punishment. When I saw the heavy list of murdered loved ones, your daughters names struck me. I don't really know why, but I went straight to their site.

I will use your powerful words as a narrative in our debate over capital punishment. Your experience will speak loud and clear. Maybe your words and experience will help to build a better and safer tomorrow.

I'll say a prayer for you today.

Jim Chrisfield

I was on my way to look at your site and make your angels part of the loss of a child memorial site. I read the FULL story of the trial and I started to cry. my partner read some of it and was also touched by the story, our heart goes out to you.

I wish you all the strength in the world. I am so sorry for this tragic loss. I so hope that you will find peace someday.

Dear Mrs. Purnhagen,

I came upon this memorial some months back, quite frankly somewhat by mistake. However, I have returned every few weeks since then. Words really can't do justice to the tragedy of it. I really would like to contribute to any memorial that may exist, and barring that, I would like to send you a Christmas gift. Please don't think I am weird for saying this, I am just really moved by this story. You may email me at your convenience if you are so inclined.

I am only a freshman in highschool and on my study period i came down to the library and was looking at the yearbooks...in the 1974 yearbook there was a quote..."I always believed in living for today, because i might not be here tomorrow" there was a girl murdered in my town many years ago in the year 1974! I came on the internet to see if i could get some information on her. While i was looking for her i found your web-site and got tears in my eyes reading it! My love goes out to you and im sure you will make the best out of your life...read the quote i wrote and live by it! Ill pray for you and your family and your daughters. Best wishes, Melissa

What a touching and lovely tribute to two beautiful daughters. I believe that the Lord is holding them in his hands now and you will see them again. I cannot imagine the heartache you and your family have suffered. I hope that there is some closure now for you. May the son remain rotting prison, in a living hell re-living every day the nightmares of all that he has done until the day he meets his father in satan's dwelling.

It was sunday June 17, 1990 when I saw the story in the Houston Post. My mom had woke me up that morning waving it in my face. Gracie was a friend of mine and was dating my best friend, Kevin, when this terrible event occurred. I think about this day often and have always wondered what became of the two people that took your daughters from you. I'm glad to hear that Dennis got the punishment he deserved and I know Delton will one receive his. I am truly sorry these things have to happen to. GOD BLESS YOU.

To look at my two daughters who are the same years apart as your daughters were only makes me wonder how you survived such a terrible ordeal. You must be a very strong person. I know it is no comfort for someone to say they are in a better place, but know that they are and they are together and you will see them again someday. Peace be yours and I hope with all my heart you find some closure from their killers execution and for the sake of every child never give up the fight to keep their other killer in jail. He should never again walk among us as a free man. God bless you.

On June 2nd I happened across the files for executed prisoners in Texas. I was reading each one seeing what each man was convicted of and i came across your story. I was so saddened by what i read that i had to search for something that would allow me to know your two girls as more than a name on a file. I found this and thought that it was a wonderful tribute to their lives. All i can say is i'm sorry and God bless.

I don't believe in the death penalty. it would be to easy for them to not feel the pain of what they have done to your 2 beautiful daughters. By execution would mean to be set free of there guilt.

I'm really feeling sad about the loss you suffered. I'm currently working on my certification as a Victim's Advocate counselor. Part of my certification is that I have to do volunteer work at a place. I chose a place called Parents Of Murdered Children. If you want to get involved it's an excellent group and they will have people there to help you. You can also help others by sharing your story. It sucks that your daughters suffered and his son should be in the death chamber with him if you ask me. The part that makes me angry is that it's only going to take them 15 seconds to kill him. You will be in my prayers. If you need a number for the nearest chapter of POMC just drop me an email.

i am so sorry for your loss. I know that it was over 10 years ago but i know that the pain lingers on forever. Your loss has made my feelings for the death penalty even stronger. I am doing a speech on the death penalty in my speech 105 class in college, and after reading that i will be sure to persuade the class that the death penalty should remain in all the states it is currently in and should become part of the states it is not yet in. Again i am sorry for your loss and if there is anything i can do please let me know. erica may

My heart goes out to you and your family. My grandfather was murdered 20 years ago and I still have trouble dealing with it I can't imagine having to deal with it being my children. I don't know much about the justice system except I don't think they are fair. I do not believe a killer should ever be aloud back on the streets again but they seem to think it is ok. If you know of anything I can do to support you in keeping these monsters off the streets please email me I would be more than happy to help. I know how you are feeling, the man that killed my grandfather was given the death penalty twice and has recently got his sentence reduced to life and will be coming up for parole in three years. We all need to stick together and let our court systems know we are not going to stand for these killers to be turned lose to do it again My grandfather was this man's seventh victim and if the killer of your daughters are released they will kill again too I am sure of that I am behind you and know you are in my prayers. If there is anything I can do to help keep them there I will. God Bless you and your family

I REALLY AM SORRY FOR THE HEART ACHE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE GOING THROUGH. YOU ARE NOT SELFISH. I BELIEVE THEY SHOULDN'T LINGER THE EXECUTION, I BELIEVE IN TORTURE. GETTING PUT TO SLEEP IS TO EASY! THE WAY THEIR VICTIMS SUFFERED THEY SHOULD SUFFER 10 TIMES WORSE. I BELIEVE IN GOD, I KNOW YOUR CHILDREN ARE IN A PLACE WHERE THERE IS HAPPINESS, SINGING, LAUGHING, DANCING AND NO ONE IS THERE TO HURT THEM. ONE DAY WE WILL ALL BE IN ONE PLACE LIVING LIFE TO IT'S FULLEST. BUT UNTIL THEN YOU NEED TO GO ON WITH YOUR LIFE BECAUSE YOUR CHILDREN WOULD PROBABLY WANT THAT. IF YOU FEEL YOU WANT TO HELP OTHER VICTIMS FAMILIES, YOU DO THAT IN THE MEMORY OF YOUR 2 GIRLS. THEY WILL LIVE ON FOREVER. AGAIN I AM DEEPLY SORRY AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU !!!YOUR CHILDREN ARE IN MY PRAYERS ALONG WITH YOU. YOUR PAGE IS BEAUTIFUL! YOUR FRIEND FAR AWAY

I am researching capital punishment for a college class. I've never had an opinion either way. I am now decided to give my speech pro-punishment. I heard alot of "let God punish them" in class. "It isn't our job to judge." I've become sickened during my research. I intend to convince these people that we have to have the death penalty or this is not going to stop. I can't stop crying and being so mad. I'm so very sorry for your loss. What pitiful words. I would like to use your story in my speech. I don't think they realize (as i didn't) the impact on all of our lives that refusing the death penalty will have and has had. Thank you for sharing such a painful story, it has driven me to become decided and I hope it will others also. Sincerely, Cheri Troutt

DEAR PURNHAGEN FAMILY: I AM SO DEEPLY SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. I BECAME ACQUAINTED WITH YOUR STORY DURING THE EXECUTION RECENTLY OF OLDER MURDERER. I HAD NO SYMPATHY FOR HIM NOR DO I FEEL SORRY FOR HIS SON. I WAS RAISED TO BELIEVE THAT EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. HOWEVER, IN TIMES LIKE THESE I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT GOOD COULD POSSIBLY COME FROM A TRAGEDY SUCH AS THE ONE YOU HAVE SUFFERED. I HAVE CHILDREN OF MY OWN AND THINK I MIGHT UNDERSTAND HOW YOU MUST FEEL. I AM SO SORRY THAT YOU HAVE LOST YOUR LITTLE GIRLS. WE CAN FIND SOME PEACE IN KNOWING THEY ARE WITH OUR LORD AND THAT ONE DAY, WE WILL SEE THEM AGAIN. I PRAY FOR YOUR FAMILY AND THAT IN TIME THE PAIN GETS EASIER FOR YOU. SHOULD YOU NEED A LETTER TO HELP ENSURE THE SON DOESN'T GET OFF EASY, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I'LL BE GLAD TO WRITE TO WHOMEVER, AS A SUPPORTER OF THE DEATH PENALTY. WE NEED JUSTICE FOR OUR CHILDREN. GOD BLESS AND MAY YOUR LIVES GET BRIGHTER WITH EACH PASSING DAY.

My heart is aching for you and your family. Tears were streaming as I read your page and still are as I write this. My father was murdered and my family is still fighting to have the killers sentence increased and their appeal denied. I am 19 years old and have no idea what it would be like to lose a child. I will not say I understand what you are going through because I don't. I do know the loss of a parent and it is the hardest thing I have ever dealt with in my life. I can only imagine that the loss of a child is far greater. I will pray for your family. I hope with all of my heart that they never get out. Be strong and know that people are rooting for you and wish all the best. Sincerely, Candice Green

Words cannot express how sorry I am for the loss of your 2 beautiful daughters Gracie and Tiffany. It very much pains me to even read the story of how their untimely deaths came about. Dennis Dowthitt got exactly what he deserved. I am 100% in favor of capital punishment, and those who are opposed to it need to stop and think about what the condemned has actually done, as many of them do not. I hope and pray Delton will spend the rest of his life in jail, and even that is too good for that monster. God bless your entire family, as your two beautiful angels look down from heaven. "I swear by myself declares the LORD, that because you have acted as you did, I will bless you abundantly and make your descendants as countless as the stars of the sky; your descendants shall take possession of the gates of their enemies and through them all nations of Earth shall find blessing- all this because you obeyed my command." -Gen 22:16-18

There is nothing I can say to you to relieve your sorrow. All I can say is that I am sorry to read about your daughters, and what happened to them. They have it easy now, they are with God at peace. It is you who must continue to suffer, and as a father of three daughters I can only imagine your pain. People who are opposed to the death penalty should learn the story of this horrendous tragedy, and realize that demons do indeed walk this earth, and should be treated as such. Again I am sorry.

Hi, I have to say how deeply sorry I am for your losses. What a horrible world we live in. I have a 9 year old child and I just can't even imagine how you feel. I too am a survivor of homicide. My only sibling (my younger sister) was murdered on April 15,1999, she was sexually assaulted and strangled. No-one can quite understand the pain of having a loved one murdered like another victim. Even if the murderer was executed it still does not bring back your two beautiful daughters or take your pain away. My prayers are with you.

I just read the horrible news reports concerning your daughters' murders. I would say justice has been served with Dowthitt's death. The pity is that he was not made to suffer, and I just realized that is the statement the newspaper reported you'd said just after the execution. I am so very sorry about what happened to your precious daughters. My only suggestion at this point is to always remember the joy they brought and relish their precious memories. Again, God bless you and your family. May the peace that passes understanding now begin to envelope you and your family.

I CAN'T BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW MOVED I AM BY YOUR STORY. I HAVE 3 CHILDREN MYSELF, AND AM EXPECTING ANOTHER. MY SINCERE SYMPATHY GOES OUT TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.



The painting, Side By Side, is the work of artist Greg Olsen.
