i am very sorry about your loss but the teen boys should have not gotten the death penalty they are only teenagers. if your family is so catholic then then you should know the 10 commandments right well first off thy shall not kill. just because someone killed someone doesnt mean they should be killed too.just because someone jusps off a bridge doesnt mean you do it too. and i hope they didnt get the death sentence because they are black. you shouldnt post things that are from a trial unless you have court documentaition from the trial by the way its against the law. my freids bf is a cop. so this site could be shut down if i were to let him know that you stateing things that went on in the trial like the death penalty.

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: Sarah, Don't come to a memorial page for a murder victim and preach.  You obviously know nothing about what you think you want to talk about, so please go spend some time learning about the death penalty, and the law, and also get some manners while you are at it.  "First off", the Hebrew translation of the commandment says Thou shalt not murder.  Also, you have no clue what you are talking about regarding posting anything from the trial.  Please do tell your boyfriend....

Update to Rita Rabalais' murder!!! Since the US Supreme Court ruled that juveniles can not be executed for crimes they commit, one of the two murderers awaiting execution for this crime has been moved from DEATH ROW at Angola State Penitentiary in Louisiana. He was 16 at the time of the murder. Although he pre-meditated and planned the murder, they say he was not old enough to know what he was doing and cannot be executed. He will be re-sentenced in 9th Judicial District Court (Alexandria, Louisiana) on May 2, 2005. How the US Supreme court can make such a ruling is un real. They don't know what all this GANG member did and how he and his buddies planned out just how it would go down. He was surely old enough to know how to MURDER someone brutally. Please, let us (murder victim's families) hear some out-crying against this ruling!!!!! It is devastating!!!!

From one Rabalais to another, I am deeply sorry for this horrible crime your family has had to endure. May God bless you in a way that only He can. My grandfather's name was Lance Bernard Rabalais who is I believe the third generation of that Rabalais branch to be in the United States. They are originally from Nova Scotia. He grew up in Simsport, Louisiana and eventually moved to Powhatan to work for the railroad. He married an Italian woman named Anne Marie Mondello who came to America with her parents and some other family to establish themselves in the Land of the Free. They had ten children and lived off the paycheck meant for a family of three. All ten are happily married, successful, and happy with their own families. They regularly get together for a fun time of music, laughing, praying (we are all Catholic also), drinking, and of course......EATING!! From french, italian, cajun, and so on...the culture influences on the Rabalais family's cook book has created some of the most flavorful, sinful, and exotic foods and even the most cuisine-savvy would agree. My parents, Greg (the next to youngest of the ten) and Cheryl Rabalais, have resided in Crossett Arkansas for the last 6 years. My father does anesthesia and my mother is a RN. I attend the University of Louisiana of Monroe and my 16 year old brother is attending Crossett High School. If you know how closely you are related to us, I would love to know and report back to my branch of southern Rabalais'. If y'all are anything like us, y'all are good people.....honest and hard working. Rita Rabalais sounds like she was a wonderful woman with a genuine soul. Your family and Rita will all be in our prayers. GOD BLESS

Hello Aunt Rita, Today is the day. It has been TEN years today since you have been taken from us and I miss you terribly. You have long ago taken you place with our Dearest God and all of His angels and saints.........but I am still waiting for Fredrick Gradley and Cedric Howard to meet their master. I would so much like to be there when they do meet their Master. I desire to hear from their mouth what pleasure they got from hurting you so badly. I desire to know why YOU... why did they pick you. I am waiting to be in the viewing room for the execution of these two. I only want to know from them what joy they gained from hurting you. I want to see them ask God for forgiveness. I know that if they ever once asked Him for forgiveness He extended it to them and they would now be sons of God. But knowing their character, I know that they will never ask forgiveness of God. I am sorry for them that they do not know God as you knew Him. I was bitter for a very long time but now, Aunt Rita, know that I do forgive them as you would want me to. The hard part of it is to forget. I don't think that I will ever be able to do that. Goodnight, sweet lady. Rest in Peace with our Lord as you have for ten years now. Happy Birthday (as you were reborn on October 24, 1994 when you reached Heaven with our Father in that instant that your life was taken). Happy 93rd Birthday October 31, 2004 the day of your earthly birth to your mother and father. I love you so very much, sharon

I am so sorry about your loss. My mother in law who we lived next door too for 10 years was brutally beaten and murdered. She was a cook, seamstress and just a grandma, she was always there. The murderer confessed to brutally beating her, then stabbing her then cleaning up his mess, throwing her body into her car and dumping it on the side of the road like garbage. He was out on parole at the time of her murder only 6 months for shooting, and robbing another man and leaving him for dead, only he survived he was given 30 years, and was released after 15 years for "GOOD TIME".

It sounds like Rita was a wonderful Aunt, wife, friend and mother. I have a great Aunt who is 88 years old and she has done everything your Aunt Rita has in life. I cherish every moment I can with her because no one every knows what is going to happen. I can also relate to you and your family because on November 5, 2003 in Richmond, VA my son's father was murdered and it has been a struggle and very hard, but the only thing I can do is pray that they find the murderer and they will be sentenced to the death penalty. The police have arrested 7 people so I hope they will soon have the right one. God bless you and your family, Stephanie

Dear Family of Ms. Rabalais, I forgot to add that we grew up in a small town in Massachusetts as very devout Catholics. Renee was baptized in the Notre Dame Catholic Church in Adams, Massachusetts. My husband's Mother, Florence Desautels Rondeau, was born in Quebec. There are many relatives who are Desautels and Rondeau's in Quebec. Gordon, my husband, went to French Parochial School until the 8th grade, and learned all of his prayers in French. His favorite country is French. We know that we would have had a lot in common with Ms. Rabalais. Our daughter, Renee, who was murdered, studied at the Sorbonne in Paris, and spoke fluent French. Thought we would just tell you. Would love to talk with you. Sincerely, Elaine Rondeau

Dear Family of Rita Rabalais, We are so sorry about the terrible murder of this lovely lady. She lived a wonderful life and seemed so sweet to so many. Our own daughter, Renee, was murdered on Halloween night, October 31, 1994, by two strangers in Chicago, Illinois. We would love to share with you, and to extend our offer for any kind of assistance that you may need. We attended the NOVA conference (National Organization for Victim Assistance) in New Orleans, LA last summer, August 2003. Over the past 10 years since the murder of our daughter, we have been assisting victims of crime. We hope that you will write to us. The photo of Rita Rabalais is lovely. Sincerely and with hopes for a better future, Elaine and Gordon Rondeau Marietta,Georgia

What a wonderful way to remember your aunt. As you can see, I am a Rabalais, too, and your aunt Rita's picture reminds me SO MUCH of my own grandmother, Dessie Rabalais (certainly a generation before Rita) who was my father's mother. My dad grew up in Moreauville, too. His name was Roy Rabalais. His sister, Doris, (my Aunt Doris) would be about the same age as your Aunt Rita. Dad also had a brother, Allen who passed away in 2000 at approximate age of 85. Once again, a tribute to you that you would do so much in memory of your "Aunt Rita". And of course, I like that her initials and those of her husband are also in the "RR" tradition as were my dad's and two brothers Russ & Robert.

You're with jesus in glory. the bible says he that destroys the temple of god, god will destroy them. our body is god's temple. god's holy spirit lives in our body if we are spirit filled christians. dear rita, may god grant you everlasting joy and eternal life in heaven. we are spiritual beings - we have a spirit and soul that never dies.

I hope and pray you receive total justice.

I have taken the time to reply to this and other memorials to let the families know that others do care very much about their loss and grieve for and with them. Aunt Rita sounds like a wonderful person, and I really connected with her caring and warm ways. Her loss is a loss to us all. With Loving Sympathy, Lisa

I am so sorry for the loss of your Aunt. I don't know what its like to lose someone very close to you in that way, and I hope that I ever won't have to. Justice has been served somewhat for you. When the lord closes a door, somewhere he opens a window. So continue to praise God and He'll see you through the rest of the way!

I'm so sorry for your loss and know how you feel. I recently lost my stepdaughter and grandson - they were murdered in their home. There have been no arrests made. Its just not fair that so many bad people live and so many good people are taking from us. I share your loss and you're in my prayers. Sincerely Christie
