"We feel that justice was not done and our family has to live this nightmare," said Pam and Terry Urnosky last year after they found out, Cleve Foster, the accused murderer of their 22-year-old daughter Rachel, received a stay of execution.
"I was hoping to be able to make eye contact to be able to hopefully hear an 'I'm sorry,'" they said.
Foster received three stays of execution in 2011.
Tonight the family was once again in Huntsville, Texas, to hopefully hear that 'I'm sorry' they've been wait for, for almost 11 years.
Foster was executed tonight at 6:43.
And in his last words he said..."I sat in my cell many days wondering what my last words would be."
He also said, "Over the years, I have learned to love, God is everything, God is my life."
The Urnosky family contacted KLBK News after the execution and in a statement they say 'Although Foster did not admit guilt nor say he was sorry for the crimes he committed, my family and I can finally move on.'
Now the Urnosky's are not the only one in pain.
Foster was also convicted of killing a 30-year-old woman in Fort Worth and dumping her body in a ditch.
"If Foster repents and asks god into his heart and goes to heaven Rachel will be at the gates waiting for him that's the kind of person she was," said Pam Urnosky in 2011.
Foster is the 9th person to be executed in Texas this year.
LAST STATEMENT: "Yes, you know I sat in my cell many days wondering what my
last words would be. Love for my family, grandson, friends. I love you
very much. Tonight when I close my eyes, I'll be with my father. Some
time ago I got a letter, I read it and stuck it in with a bunch of stuff,
and I thought to myself what a cold hearted person. I was asked about the
letter, I spent half the night looking for the letter. A little part of
the letter touched me. Over the years, I have learned to love, God is
everything, God is my life. Tonight I will be with him. I am a parent
myself; I have so much for this dear lady. I understand where they're
coming from, I thought every person was cruel. I love you so, Susan you
know what it is girl, love ya, Maurie appreciate it girl, much love to you
all, Mrs. Cox love you. Momma you are my hero, I wish this world was just
like you. Another mother got hurt, as a parent I understand the pain. That
letter she wrote she wasn't wrong, she was just hurting. She showed God's
love for letting me know that love will be there to welcome me home. I
love you all, I don't know what you are going to feel after tonight. I
love you, I pray one day we will all meet in heaven. A man told me 11
years ago the hardest thing to say is I forgive you. Hope one day we all
be together again. I love you all Susan, Mrs. Cox, Momma, Maurie, Michael.
Grandbabies make the world go around. I love you all. Warden I am looking
to leave tis place on wings of a homesick angel. Ready to go home to meet
my maker. What a friend we have in Jesus, oh my God I lay in awe 'cause I
love you God. I love you momma, I love you Susan.
