"Lisa Pettijohn:

I agree that you should tear down this page. Why? Because every word you mutter here is a LIE and you know it, I know it, and God knows it. You sat there and watched a man sentenced to DEATH for murders he committed, but you don't bat an eye at the murders you have committed with your LYING. So, yes, tear down this page and thereby stop further condemning yourself. The truth about things is being written elsewhere."

"I have loved you forever and forevermore.  A request was made to take this site down, I am just grateful that you are not here to see all the meanness and nastiness that spiteful little people will stoop to in order to hurt the people who love you the most. You will always be with me, and I will always be with you and beautiful baby girl, our Little Lana Leigh.  God willing,  I always come back to you, and one day, I will be next to you forevermore. Rest well, my babies. ♡ Love from mommers ♡"

"I will never again be able to come here. However, I hope that someone will stop by this site on occasion, and remember. At least remember."

"The most recent entry here was posted about 9 months ago. Without deliberate effort, "forever missed" so easily turns to fast forgotten.Isn't that just another kind of murder? Let us not be found guilty of that."

"Yesterday, May 6, one of the peonies we have planted in the back yard for you and baby Lana, it burst into a big beautiful pink flower. I know you and Lana were murdered on May 1, 2013, but due to the lies if psychopath who executed you and then shot Lana and she landed on you, we were misled, and didn't find you until May 6.  He took Lana and put her in a suitcase in the Tequa Creek and it was by the hard work of law enforcement and the Grace of God, that you were ever reunited with Lana."

"As a toddler and for the rest of your short life, I called you "KAYLIE GRACE" because you were so klutzy. You couldn't just lose your footing and regain it, you had to fall with arms and legs hitting everything and twisted every which way.  Then you would sit on the ground and we'd giggle uncontrollably.  You always had a fascinating and terrific sense of humor, my baby, my Kaylie Grace."

"Hi my baby girl Kaylie. I miss you and your Baby Girl, Lana so much. Today would be her 4 1/4 year birthday. I put up flowers that are teal and cream, and we planted peonies on either side of the headstone and two in the backyard last fall, hoping they will bloom in the spring.  Anonymous  people leave flowers and decorations at your and Lana Leigh's grave.  I like going there.  I always come back to you. One day I will come back next to you two forever.  There is so much I want to say to the whole world about you and Lana but I can't yet. For now I will say that you are a great mama and I know you love Lana, I just wish I would have said it to you when you needed to hear it from me."

There is too much hate and anger in the world.  People need to love more and hate less."
