GIVEN UNDER MY HAND 16 JUNE 2000
RANDY D. ROBERTS, COLONEL, USAF COMMANDER
Raul's Family Comments: As Raul's family we now understand that there are others that will miss Raul as much as his family; We want to say that there is no amount of money that could replace Raul; There is no way to put a VALUE on such a wonderful person; I’m very blessed to have had him for almost 30 years and very proud that he was able to serve this country with pride and made so many helpful decisions to improve his work and help his co-worker. The life of a person is so precious and for greed to take this life away is so evil. Some people tell me that Money is the root of all Evil all I can say on that is No money is not evil; It’s the love of money that is evil.
We thank the Air Force for giving such a wonderful service in memory of Raul and thank you for the video that you all send my family. We appreciated it very much as we didn’t have the opportunity do make a video at his grave-site. I also want to thank all that worked with Raul and the group picture that was send to us, May God continue to bless all of you. Only another mother that her son was taken from her could tell you how much it means to a mom when others do special thing for them. That is graved in my memory and there is not enough thank you to say.
When a son is legally married to someone that is the person that makes all decisions’ and Raul was married so I could say anything Raul was buried so far from Texas that it would take me 8 ½ hours to visit his grave. I know he is not there but it would be nice to remember him and place flowers at his grave like other families do. What they didn’t know at the time was that his wife was involved in his murder so she made all the decision’ the only one that suspects her was me Raul Mom. It took one year and four days for her arrest but she was charged with his murder. It really didn’t matter if his wife was the one that wanted Raul gone she still made all the decisions’ the grave-site could have been between Texas and Oklahoma but she made the decision to take him so far from us.
I’m glad that she was charged and sent to prison for 12 year for conspiracy she made the choice to have Raul murdered; 12 years is nothing compare to my life sentence. Even if her case was overturn on May 19, 2008 and she’s free now because of a stupid mistake a loop hole she found. She still has to answer the real Judge he knows what she did and we don’t leave this world without facing the maker God. Everything is in his hands and it was her choice of all that happen all the pain she cause everyone the hell she made me go through I don’t wish her anything bad she makes her own choices’ all I want her to remember even when I’m gone is the # 50 for the 50 times Raul was hit on the back of his head and # 7 for the stabbed wounds he received on his back also. The coward that she used to kill Raul needs to remember that too. Since he made his choice to play God and take a life. He will remember that for all the days he is locked up unless he also finds a loop hole to get out of his punishment too. I might not be here to see Justice for my son but one day there will Justice for all victims that did not have a CHOICE! Their life was taken by force they didn’t chose to die the way they did but it happen and those cowards that took their life needs to pay for their crime. And be glad that it’s not the way it use to be in the B-I-B-L-E a life for a life that is way there is so much crime. They might get caught and do 5 to 10 maybe probation.
