notes to victims and victim's families
                                                   by david berkowitz

                      To the victims of my crimes.
                  I am so sorry for the pain, grief and suffering that I've put you through.  I know that you're still suffering till this very day.  My criminal actions have torn apart your lives, and I regret this.
     I hope and pray with all my heart that you will be able to heal as much as possible and that you will be able to go on with your lives.
     You have every right to be angry with me and even to hate me.  I do not expect you to forgive me either.  But no matter what, I will always pray for each of you, and I do wish you the best.
     And if this will in some way help to bring you some peace and closure, I want to share with you my feelings concerning the " parole" issue.
     I am not trying to get parole, nor am I seeking it.  I do not believe in doing this.  I have accepted my sentence and my punishment.  I admit, too, that I deserve to be in prison for the rest of my life.  And I am not seeking your pity, but I am simply stating what I feel and believe.
     So please do not be upset about this upcoming parole hearing.  I am not looking forward to it.  It's merely a procedure that's mandated by law, and in my situation you have nothing to worry about.  I will be incarcerated for a long time to come.
     I hope that what I've shared in this letter will help to bring you some comfort and ease your minds.  Thank you, and may God
always bless you.
