To be clear, I am not perfect. I have flaws and imperfections like everyone else. I fail multiple times a day. I ask for forgiveness numerous times a day.

They’re luckier than many of the other Green River families, say Robert and Linda Rule. At least they knew of their daughter’s killing within months of her death, not the years it took some to find out the fate of their loved one.
Their daughter was Linda Jane Rule, Janie to her family. She died at 16, two years after she took to the streets. She had luminous eyes, a love of learning and ambitions beyond working the street for her boyfriend-pimp, says her family.
Ridgway’s sentencing Thursday on 48 counts of first-degree murder ended more than the nation’s longest ongoing serial murder investigation, say the Rules. It ended years of wondering whether anyone would ever be caught and punished for their daughter’s murder.
It also allowed them to forgive the murderer, and that forgiveness is something they need to go through the rest of their lives with their souls intact, Robert Rule said.
