THANK YOU JURORS! you're restoring my faith in juries who are smart & do the right thing!!
RIP lisa & alan, you were blessed in life to have your family and you were blessed now to have had them fight for justice!
Wonderful news. Just the sentence Tulessa was hoping for.
I hope all of the family gets the rest they need and deserve.
One less huge heavy burden to carry.
**Life WITHOUT Parole**
A grandchild fills a space in your heart that you never knew was empty....
What could I say to her at that time - hold strong, keep your faith in a just God and your legal system. One juries massive failure to take responsibility does not speak for all of them! So so so happy for her and her family! And I hope she finds some measure of peace with this man's conviction and sentencing! !God Bless Tulessa, her family and God bless America!
When there is Justice - there is Peace.
I just got home and after reading this thread I am bawling. After the Jury started their deliberating, the Defense attorney came over and told us he was sorry for our loss and would be praying for us. I then told him we were praying for his client. And I prayed all day that God would touch just one heart so that he wouldn't get the DP. Apparently he listened. There was one Juror that was holding out. They finally took her from the Jury room into the judges chambers and within an hour we had a verdict. Almost six hours! During this time, I saw some of Berry's family outside in the parking lot of the court house. I walked over and introduced myself and told them that WE, as a family had been against the DP since day one. I told them we were praying for a non DP verdict today and we would continue to pray for that until the verdict was rendered. They were very nice and sincere and thanked me. He got LWOP, when he leaves it will be in a coffin, but his children still have their dad. Thank you all for the support! I could NOT have done this without you guys!

So happy for you, T! Now, please try to decompress and get some rest. Go home, yell and scream into a pillow, lay on your bed and cry, or do whatever you need to release the build up of stress that I know you must have carried all of this time. (((hugs)))
It Was Ancient Aliens!
Tulessa, did you speak to reporters afterwards? And are you upset about not giving the victim impact statement or are you okay with it? Also, any comments by the judge when handing down the sentence? Answer only when you can and are ready. I can imagine it's been one heck of a day for you.
For Travis Alexander, a human being. Justice will prevail.
*Gitana (means "Gypsy girl"). Pronounced "hee tah nah."
The formal sentencing will be July the 5th. I won't be going. Exhaleeeeeeeeeee Tulessa!

TYBEE U WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED AND LOVED.
You get some much deserved rest now, you need to rest, it's time to rest

Jury recommends two life sentences for Berry Hall
BREAKING: A Floyd County Jury gave a recommended two life sentences without parole for Berry Hall.
The jury deliberated for more than six hours.
Last week the jury convicted Hall on two counts of murder but mentally ill.
I can tell you what I told them. I told them that a tragedy that should have separated two families only made them closer. I told them that we loved Berry's family and would pray for him. I also added that this goes to show that one bad apple don't spoil the entire bunch.
God is good....
Time to rest now,Tulessa. The fight is over and justice has prevailed.
Tulessa...I sit next to you in silence...my head on your shoulder...tears of joy flowing freely.
