Thank you for being here. I am sorry for all of the pain that I have caused my family, friends, and extended family. Especially to the Police Officers, I know you probably hate me. What happened between me and Rocky happened too fast. I didn't know what happened. I wish y'all peace and love. I hope you have found God just like I have. God bless y'all. I will see you on the other side. I love you.

I would like to apologize to the Moreno family and the Steinfeldt family for all of the trouble I have caused them. I would like to apologize to my family for all of the trouble that I have caused them. I would also like to thank my family for all of their support. I guess that’s it.

That each new indignity defeats only the body. Pampering the spirit with obscure merit. I love you all, that's it.

Joanna I really love and care about her, I appreciate her.  There is a drawing that I forgot to tell you about, send it to Stacy.  Art, I appreciate you.  Joanna, tell my family I love them all.  Trix I love you too. 

Teresa I am really sorry, please don’t have hate in your heart.  I really feel like this.  I hope you can find peace in your heart and happiness.  A revenge death won’t get you anything.  Joanna, I love you.  Let’s ride.
