    1 Sentencing Was Set For May 9th Just 3 Days After What Would Have Been Her 44th Birthday😒
    1 He Was Facing 45-65 Years For Murder 1
    1 So Many Family And Friends Submitted Letters To The Judge
    1 And 5 Of Us Took The Stand Including Me Her Aunt
    1 We Told The Judge What A Beautiful Person Janet Was Inside As Well As Outside
    1 And How Her Death Had Affected Us Or Someone Else Which Wasn't Hard To Do
    1 Because Her Death Affected Everyone Of Us Family And Friends Who Knew And Loved Her
    1 So Finally It Came Time For The Judge To Talk And He Mainly Talked Straight To Him
    1 The Judge Showed Him No Sympathy Because Through It All He Had Shown No Remorse
    2 He Was Sentenced To 63 Years
    2 When The Judge Read His Sentence It Was As If He Was Reading A Closing Chapter Of A Book
    1 After 2
    1 But At The Same Time It Was Like O.K Where Do We Go From Here??
    1 How Do We Start To Heal?? Someone So Precious Had Been Taken From Us And That Wound Will Never Heal
    1 We Feel She Is At Peace Now But Are We?? I Don't Know But I Do Know
