That was the last word spoken by Carl Henry Blue on Thursday before he lost consciousness as result of a lethal dose of Pentobarbital, his punishment for killing Carmen Richards-Sanders in 1994 by setting her on fire.
"I'm talking to each and every soul in this building, in this room," Blue said minutes before his death while strapped to a gurney. "Get your life right. I don't hate nobody, you're doing what you think is your job. God's law is above this law."
It took 26 minutes for the 47-year-old Bryan man to be pronounced dead, a short time compared to the 19 days his victim suffered in pain before she died after being set ablaze by Blue.
He was pronounced dead at 6:56 p.m. inside a small green room in the Huntsville Prison Unit, which is better known as the "Walls Unit."
On August 19, 1994, Blue entered Richards' College Station apartment with a cup of gasoline he'd purchased at a gas station next door. Richards was doused in the fuel and set on fire, as was a friend of hers in the apartment that morning, Larence Williams.
Williams suffered severe burns on more than half his body but survived.
Before being knocked unconscious by the drug, Blue looked toward his victim's daughter, Terrella Richards, to express remorse.
"Hi Teri," he said as Richards approached the viewing window where she watched the execution. "I love you, I never meant to hurt your momma. I hope you can forgive me."
Blue then looked toward a separate viewing room where his parents were standing with a chaplain, two media representatives and prison security.
"Hey Ma, Pa, all you people in there," Blue said. "I love y'all. Come together and love each other."
Terrella Richards, 41, gave a brief statement to the media after witnessing the execution, saying she'd now be able to move one with her life.
Blue had been on death row for nearly 19 years. When interviewed by The Eagle on Wednesday, he said he was at peace with his punishment, although he didn't agree with it.
"I did something wrong, now I'm paying the ultimate price," he said. "Even though it's crooked justice, I forgive those people."
Blue talked throughout the five or so minutes it took for prison officials to administer the lethal dose and for the drug to take effect.
For the most part, he encouraged his family and observing witnesses to seek God and treat each other with love and forgiveness.
"Tell my babies Daddy will be looking down on them from Heaven," he said of his 25-year-old daughter and 24-year-old son, neither of whom attended the execution.
"So y'all hang on, cowboy up; I'm fixing to ride, and Jesus is my vehicle," Blue said.
Moments before he drifted off into a fatal sleep, Blue said:
"Alright, Warden. Terrella, I feel it baby."
With that, he took several deep breaths, then said, "Love," and took his last audible breath at 6:31 p.m., one minute after the drug hit his blood.
Blue was the first Texas death row inmate to be executed in 2013. His final appeal was denied by the Supreme Court about five minutes before his scheduled execution time.
