But he act like he did. I thought he was serious about his s He came at me.
ROY: I had to protect my old lady. On the floor by the TV, she had created a shrine to her son: a photo of Richards and the program from his funeral. I fell backwards.
Never have an argument with him again. I would say 50, maybe 60 people there. And of course I broke down. My last chance to see him. Irene Quarles still had to deal with people squatting in her back yard, plugging their cell phones into her outlets. She was terrified to confront them. Devastated to have lost her husband to jail. People just trying to disrespect him. My husband did what he did to protect his family. Patricia Roy was in D.
Or is he just shot? The only person I thought of was a person who worked for the Justice Department. So I called and asked did she know anyone I could get to defend him? Roy hired Lee Pearlman to defend her son. PEARLMAN: This case is about a man defending his family in a circumstance that nobody ever wants to be in, which is a person who has made it clear to you they are going to come back and shoot your house up. What was the right way to react?
Does a jury believe that this was an imminent threat? The defense would be focused entirely around that: an argument of self-defense. The greatest hope is we have a case where we can put this to a jury, potentially, and reach a not-guilty verdict. The worse-case scenario is, potentially, the death penalty. One potential version is that these two were friends, and this was just a bad day for Mr. Is that validated by somebody who allegedly shoots somebody 17 times? We engage with the neighborhood, increase our visibility.
The context is so important. This person continues to be arrested, continues to come back on his property. This is a man who, over and over, comes to his window, knocks. Somebody opens fire, where you gonna go? BARKER: If he would have done this five minutes earlier, when the guy was on his property, it would have been more of a justified-type thing.
Stand your ground is a basic legal defense that the judge makes. Self-defense is a jury question. So we try for self-defense and hope to get manslaughter. With manslaughter, you reduce the minimum mandatory sentencing to 12 or 13 years. Prosecutor Scott Rosenwasser said Roy was charged with first-degree murder because the shooting seemed premeditated. Loaded the extra clip. Followed Richards across the street.
The prosecutor said Pearlman offered 15 years for a guilty plea. She added his ashes to the memorial beside her TV. He need to sit back and think about everything he take away from me. Not just even my family, even if he could step back and see he done took it away from his own family.
For a time, Patricia Roy visited her son twice a week. She gained 20 pounds from the stress. In May, she headed back to D. And then I have to go see him behind that screen. Oh, it just tears me up to see him like that. Quarles left the corner behind and moved with her daughter and grandson to a trailer. She looks emaciated, having lost 50 pounds.
My new mobile home is, like, three blocks from the jail. Too much hanging out in the front of the store, across the street. ROY: A jury? No way. Three years I put up with that crap. No human being should have to tiptoe around another person, be scared to even come around that person.
In August, Roy stood before the judge in a Pinellas County courtroom. During the last year in jail, he shaved his head. His goatee went gray. And beneath his left eye he had another inmate etch a tattoo: A tear drop.
The judge scheduled a trial for April. Back to login. Forgot Password. We will send a new password to your email. Please fill your email to form below. DPReview Digital Photography.

PillPack Pharmacy Simplified. I realize that I am a sinner and I really need your forgiveness.
I caused you so much pain and distressed you many times. Please, I ask you to forgive me all of my sins that I have ever committed in my life. I thank you so much for all that you did for me by giving me Salvation and Eternal Life.
I Honor you Heavenly Father for giving your only begotten Son Jesus for punishment, and death years ago. I receive you Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. Please come into my life and into my heart and change me.
I make a decision from today to fully commit myself to you and to serve you with all of my life. Hi this last yr has been very hard. I ask god to please please forgive me. I know my family could be beautiful again if god hears me. I know he does but I it seems he is really making me really work for it this time. I love god so much I used to be so very deeply near god and I want that back and my family please pray for me please. I am so appreciative of this opportunity to share my incredible testimony with you.
The fact that I one finger typed my autobiography and got it published, given my background, in itself goes beyond a mathematical improbability. As my website says a lot about me and also has a direct link of me on you tube, where I actually share my testimony in front of my church congregation.
I will say this much though…. At fifty-nine years of age, nine years ago, the bible was just another book to me, and Jesus was a fantasy of a colorful imagination. Now they are both my sustaining lifelines! Rest assured, I will never forget where I came from, as my soul and life have literally been drenched in human suffering, as it played itself out in the very pits of hell.
We seldom, if ever consider the heights we could reach. In having tried everything else, and rather than just giving up on yourself, allow God to control your every step and believe me when I tell you, by the merits of Jesus Christ, you will be lifted out of your depraved state and made more precious than any treasure.
How can I be so sure? I went from crippling impossibilities, to living realities! Never within my sorrowful life was there anything to substantiate my being a man of great wisdom, nor was there any indication that my life was destined for anything other than misery and suffering. Of my own resources I could never, ever have changed the course of my destructive life. Unquestionably, I am a living testimony that our Lord Jesus does in fact hear our cry of help and it does not matter whether this plea is one of faith or unbelief, as the two walk hand in hand.
As long you allow yourself to be molded by the Grace of the Holy Spirit, God will heal and restore all the broken pockets of your life to heights greater than their original state. My own perception of my very existence could be tragically summed up within the following metaphor:. Each of my years had brought its own thundering wave crashing down upon me, which threatened to swallow me in its darkest depth.
With an unexplainable willpower, I battled each treacherous wave. In reaching its peak and briefly catching my breath as I aimlessly drifted into the next unknown valley, I was once again drawn into an unrestrained despair, longing for my life to end, as on the horizon, I would see the next hideous wave approaching with a terrifying ferociousness. From birth, my life was full of great instability, as my parents placed their own selfish wants and needs above those of their children.
At fifteen, I began my thirty-three year battle with chronic alcoholism, one year later I embarked on a life of crime, prison survival, and violence, which spanned the next twenty-five years, fourteen of those were spent in prisons across Canada. At twenty-nine years of age I became a narcotic drug addict as well. In , as a result of playing Russian roulette and sharing needles, I was officially diagnosed as having the deadly and incurable HIV infection, and told that my life would be very short-lived.
Almost twenty years has now passed since that devastating diagnosis, and as I am writing these very powerful words, without any hesitancy, beyond a shadow of a doubt, I know that Jesus Himself, in exactly my 50th year, delivered me to Emmanuel Pentecostal church to be baptized in His name and filled with His holy spirit! Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remissions of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost Acts The question you need to think about is this.
What side of eternity will they be on? My Bible in John tells me; except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Today is the day of salvation, tomorrow may never come! The first time I entered a church, for the longest time it sounded as though the preacher was trying to sell me an elusive map, which I definitely now know is not the case.
Once fully explored, the possibilities of the unknown will be awakened, and you too will begin to realize the unlimited realities within the world of the impossible. Faith, in its most simplistic nature, has always been within our grasp. The key to unlocking its mystery lies within these very words.
Our most painful journey, which I just cannot stress enough will be that one of internal reflection. I have faced many obstacles throughout my life, and none of it until I looked back in reflection mattered!
You begin to understand, that in light of everything, even if I had wanted to change the course of my destructive life, this in itself proved to be a human impossibility!
Of my own understanding, it was never a question of how I was going to turn my life around, but rather of when and where would it end! I have truly been blessed with a new heart, which is to have a new mind, new purposes and new motives. However, the most noticeable sign of a new heart is a changed life! Nothing mattered more than trying to understand the Why, or more specifically, What had for most of my life, left me colder than that iceberg which sank the Titanic.
Definitely through my writing, but more so within the struggles of positive changes, which in themselves can only be attributed to that of Divine Intervention, I have faced and come to terms with my most paralyzing fears, unraveling the mysteries of my tormented life. In order to truly understand the Why, one must first fully explore the often painful, yet complicated paradoxes between our tormented yesterdays, combined with the struggles of today.
It was a time when my life had literally lost all its meaning, and it was while in serious thoughts of self extinction, I had somehow for the first time found the courage to ask God for a miracle. Almost from my birth my mind had been a continual habitation of one demon or another, where the very real powers and principalities of darkness themselves have manipulated my life like a puppet on a string.
As with anything in this life, nothing comes easy. To be successful there is a progression of events within that process, and this as well includes entering the Kingdom of Heaven. When I ask you to believe that not only is faith in itself a powerful gift of transforming grace, but within us there exists an awesome God, who can and will restore all the shattered, broken pieces of our lives.
Throughout my life all the signs of divine intervention had always been present, from crippling addictions, to the night-and-day differences of positive changes. Amidst it all, I walked within the shadows of death itself, where failure almost always appeared as a welcomed luxury, as I continually wrestled with the incurable, yet devastating hardship of the HIV infection, which threatened on many fronts to extinguish my very life.
May the grace of God abide with you. I am going through some staff in my life but through your testimony I am believing God for a miracle.
We are coming out this August and we are looking for 6 compelling testimonies. Do you have any you could share with us and we will credit you?
When I searched in the internet, almost all the comments and reviews said that in my case it will be rejected. So at first, I worry so much to the point that I always think about it and I even cannot sleep anymore. But I came to the point that I realized that I cannot do anything anymore, I just need to trust God because I know He is powerful and can do all things even beyond our imagination.
I trusted in His promises because I know God put the dream in my heart and I know only He can fulfill it. I trusted in His love because I know that God wants what is best for me.
When doubts arise, I always think about these things. Jesus said that if we have faith, we can get what we want, provided that it is according to His will. So keep the faith and drop the doubt!. I started to send prayer request to different churches and to some of my friends. It is true that Prayer really works. Where there is hope, there is faith.
Where there is faith, miracles happen. My journey in getting my Visa really increased my faith and trust in God. My Visa was approved! Other people even told me that it was approved fast, because some usually takes a long time. Truly nothing is impossible with God! To God be all the glory, honor and praise. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Mark Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians Jeremiah God rescued me from the grip of self-harm and self-hatred. I have just recently begun to share my testimony. My first big step was to submit it as part of a contest for My Faith Radio. Please check it out.
If you like it, and feel led, please vote for me. I felt guilty,hurt,sore my life was miserabl everyone used to make fun of me. I paryed to God plz hold my hand again I want to hear your voice again plz help me support me make me new person,forgive my sins.
Ann, What a wonderful response to your doubt about the Raven who fed Elijah. Hearing you story helps me understand better how God works. I sent a Friend request by Facebook so you know who I am, and also you can contact me by the email above. If you need any help or prayer or want to contact someone on the website, just contact us and we will see what we can do.
God bless you and keep you. Marilena Fackerell. Really impressed with all diss testimonies. Having sum challenges tht is really getting me down. Plsssss I will love to be registered. On 31st December , I declined a lucrative offer from my friends to ring in the New Year at a pub downtown and instead chose to spend the last moments of the year at Church. All the while, my mind was drifting towards the revelries outside but I decided to focus on God and pray.
Raised in an Orthodox Christian family with Christian virtues, I was considered the black sheep of the family for my bratty behavior and outspokenness. My sister was sober, docile, meek, and humble.
We called the doctor who diagnosed his condition as Bell Palasy and was advised lots of rest and heavy medication. This definitely took a toll on my mother, who fell very ill and used to sleep all day.
Though my sister and I dismissed it off as over exertion, heart of hearts, I knew something was terribly wrong. She looked pale and sick but we sisters were too busy to notice as we took up jobs to cover the mounting medical expenses and had to take care of our parents as well as the household chores.
She was running temperature but her body was cold, immediately I took her to hospital and after a series of medical tests doctors declared she had pneumonia, dengue fever, viral fever, jaundice and measles all at the same time. I was the only physically strong person in the house shouldering all the responsibilities with a confused state of mind. As for mom, she used to sleep all day and never interacted much. At the hospital where my sister was admitted, the nurse who befriended me suspected that, mom had some serious medical condition and it would be better if I admitted her.
Her blood count was 2. Suddenly, I could see a white light coming closer to me and even though my eyes were shut, it seemed real. I felt new and lighter as if a heavy load was taken off my shoulders, I was reborn. This was for real and since then I never stopped praying. Miraculously, my dad got better within a week and was helping me take care of my sister and mother.
My sister took six months to recover and never had any relapses. As for mom, it took over a year for her to get completely healed. Though, I faced many trials in , I never regretted any of it as it drew me closer to God.
The only regret I had was that, I was too caught up in my own lifestyle that I forgot to give quality time to God and if I would have prayed a little early, maybe my family would be sickness free. We used to start our prayer at 12 in the midnight and used to let it go on till we fell asleep, which apparently never took place. I remember being able to sit all night praying and be energetic at work, the next day.
I started having visions of angels protecting my family and my face used to glow. One day while praying, God showed me a vision, I seen my paternal uncle and he was holding a voo doo doll. I prayed and asked God the meaning of this vision. I had seen my house and my mother standing beside it.
I shared this with her and she told me that when I was a toddler, our grandfather asked us to leave the house and live elsewhere, but soon he realized how empty it was, called us back and divided the property into two equal halves, one for my dad and the other for my uncle, who wanted the whole house for himself. Soon, his greed surpassed him and he resorted to Witchcraft to finish all of us up one by one and mom was the first on his hit list. As our prayers grew stronger, he tried hard but his spells grew weak and whatever harm he wanted to cause reverted back to him threefold.
There was ill health in his family, marital discord, his only daughter and the apple of his eye fell seriously ill. He looked for ways and means to fight with us verbally so that we would get tempted, back slide and he could use that weak moment again, but we never let it happen and prayed for a spiritual change in him. Nobody was there and when came inside, the black shadows towered over our living area and were bloating up.
We were astonished and thanked God all night for his miracle. Next morning, we received the news that my uncle had a heart attack and he died. We immediately rushed to the hospital, his body was all bloated up and his face was dark without the glow of death. Near and dear ones who visited us to pay their condolences were shocked with his premature death.
But when they despise Him and submit their soul to the Devil, He leaves their hand. I would like to testify how God visited me as he did Elijah. May the Lord witness with your spirit of the truth of my words. I was sitting at my kitchen table one night reading about Elijah by the brook of Cherith and how the raven came to feed him.
It was such an amount that would possibly make two bites. I immediately knew it was the work of the Lord. Even in my doubt, Jesus was faithful to His word. I hope this testimony will help us all to realize that even in the perilous times we are facing, Jesus will take care of His people and He is a very present help in time of trouble. Love, grace, and peace to all the Saints of God. Yours in Christ, Ann J.. One day I was walking down my street it was a nice hot summer day.
It was itchy burning irrataing it covered my hole face up. When my mother used chemchels the fumes from the chemicals would sting the wombs, I would take hot showers and the water would peel the first layer of skin and my skin would weep with watery substance that came out my skin.
So my mom she very spiritual saved saintified and feeled with precious Holy Spirit. We decided to go to emergency then to a dermatologist then to a clinic, it was like a cycle all they did was shoot me up with steroid shots and peels and creams.
They had me use this black tar cream to put on my skin the smell was so strong my nose couldnt even bear it was the weirst cream I ever had. Then the doctor prescribed to go and get my allergies tested no allergies at all.
I was getting worse and worse people was asking was I a burnt victim. I was missing weeks and weeks of school because I was embarrassed. I wanted to commit suicide give my life up. I was in a spiritual war fare. But through the mist of it all me and my mom stayed prayed up we prayed everyday faithfully continuously never gave up on Jesus.
When I was suffering she was there with me crying. We were like his solders in his army and not mans. Until she saw Jesus and touched the hem of his garment and by her faith she was healed. Our faith could be small as a mustard seed God always answer our prayers on time, but not on your time. When you least aspect it waiting on The Lord and being patient. I pray and worship him and the spirit sends me messages and I tell whomever the message belong to.
Like one day I was reading my bible and the spirit was with me and he told me To go to your cousins house and pray over her stomach and I obeyed and went and did as he said. Then the next day she ate something greasy and that night she had very painfully cramps. So her mother took her to the emergency room the doctors tested her and they said she was bleeding on the inside of her stomach, they told her to stay way from greasy foods not to eat them.
I have so many stories to tell and God is still in my life. At this time I am really glad that I survived because my life was really bad at that time, but now I am a wife, a mother, and I have a career.
God has given me everything that I have always wanted. It has been a hard struggle sometimes, but God always helps me through all of my troubles. I sent this message out because I know that there is somebody that feels the same way I felt when I was ready to take my life. The world would be better off without me. I challenge you to bring your complaints to the lord and see how he would respond.
I know that he will show you the same love he has shown me. I began questioning God, why would you do this to me? What had I done in life so bad to have this placed upon me? But instead of bemoaning my fate, I decided to look for the positive side of it. There has to be a reason for it all. I also realized that I was about to face a new beginning, new hope, do and see more with a whole new prospective on life. After going through all that I did during my breast cancer period, I was left with a few complications I now have to live with; one being daily pain.
Even after being diagnosed with another cancer colon a few years later. Which totally took me by surprise. I think about the individuals that are no longer among us. I also realized that there will always be someone worse off than I am. One day during one of my surgeries, I experienced something of a miracle, as if I went to the other side, so I felt the compulsion to write it down. Writing had become therapy for me. I took that poem, along with many others I had composed during my breast cancer period and placed them into book form.
My poems are from the heart, as real as any could ever be. I never anticipated becoming a writer, I just became one. I would have never become a writer, producing inspirational poems and stories, if I had not gone through all that I did. I grew up knowing that God is the solution to all our problems. But when I became an adult I started questioning the power of God.
It all started when I realized that everything I touched turned to ashes. Nothing worked for me.Suzy will go out to make sure you won't get caught, which gives you time to look around in the room.
