“So sad...now her son is on CA death row.... ” - Anonymous

“Ruthie Cain's son may be on CA death row, but he is an amazing person and that does not define him now in any way. ” - Shanae Cain

“I am so grateful to Tracy Cain for accepting one of my memorial albums, and for allowing me to send others to his family members. His letters have given me such hope and inspiration. He is a man of rare grace, and I thank him for his encouragement to me, as I continue to reach out to families like his. Ruthie Mae Cain and Norya shine on brightly in his warmth and wisdom. I know they are proud of him and the blessings he brings to others through his affirmation of the best in them.” - Kathryn Barbour
