    I'm Villa "Chubby" Inez Dowdy's niece. This has been a long time coming. We now hope for two thing, for her to rest in peace now, and for justice to be long over due served. I hope God is with my cousins, Her daughters, in this terrible time. They have long believe that their mother left them and ran away. Many ugly stories have come about her in these long years. I hope these children try to remember the mother they knew, and not the one their father has told them she was, over the years. Their mother loved them more than life itself. I think she has proved that.

    Such a sad thing to have happened. I wonder if the girls will believe that their father murdered their mom? That is such a horrible thing for kids to have to live with. Maybe now that the dad will be in prison you and your family can help them remember the mother that they knew through pictures and memories that you hold dear. It has to be hard for your family that the girls think bad things about their mom.
