Dear Generals Jim and Deborah,
I was watching Dr. Phil last week and saw where he had some people come to your place. I must say I thought it was very rude and dis-respectable as to what they did.
I just wanted to let you know that Brian's (Paul River) family had nothing to do with that.
We didn't even know anything about it until it was on tv. I thought the whole thing was ridiculous. I don't blame you guys for telling them to leave. They were totally out of line and dis-respectful.
I know Brian (Paul) and Stacy (Grace) live there and we are okay with it. They could be in a lot worse places. As I have gotten older, and I hope wiser, I have come to realize that you have to let your children live their own lives even if you don't always agree. I believe that so long as my children are healthy and happy than I too will be happy for them.
Please let Brian (Paul) and Stacy (Grace) know that we are sorry about what happened and that we did not have anything to do with it.
We thank God that Gerri has the courage to write and express her true sentiments and instead of trying to destroy she is offering words of life. Thank you Gerri!
