But the fear of not knowing, the agony of waiting, wondering how it would happen, waking in the middle of the night, shaking with terror and finding myself praying for ever it was, it will be done quickly and with mercy. These are the facts, the evidence before the crime. I wanted you to know in case I met a violent end...."
