When justice prevails...

I don't have a photo to add with this post.  I am actually struggling with words.  I am beyond thankful for the verdict reached today against Deleon;  the death penalty.  I am comforted by 
twelve people I have never met.  They have spoken and given him just penalty for one of the most vicious heartless murders committed of Tom and Jackie Hawkes, and John Jarvi.  When justice prevails, we can all sleep a little better.  It will not bring them back.  It is little comfort when compared to the loss of this gentle loving couple, but it is just.  I will always regret never knowing this couple after learning through this trial who they were.  I would have loved to have known them. I am certain my life would have been brighter by spending time with them.   I am thankful that Deleon received justice today.  I am thankful today for our justice system and the people who serve it.  I am praying for the Hawkes and Jarvi families and hope they are able to find some solace knowing justice prevailed.
