"Hello, ain't got to worry about nothing. I am going home. I hope to see all of ya'll one day. Lord have mercy on my soul.
For the Flake family, stay strong. It's bad to see a man get murdered for something he didn't do, but I am taking it like a man, like a warrior. I am going home to Jesus. I love ya'll, peace. Iam ready sir. . .Don't forget to tell my daughter. . .I am ready, Warden."
—Elkie Taylor, executed in Texas on November 6, 2008
