In case you haven't had a chance to read it or hear it again, here is a portion of the victim impact statement of Kari's Mom, Linda Dulin, after Matt was found guilty and sentenced. It explains the new choice of words on the sticker.

Oh, yes, Linda. It sure does.
5:52 p.m. --Kari Baker's mother, Linda Dulin, delivers her victim impact statement. She tells her son-in-law to look at her. Linda Dulin says: "You took her from us, Matt. You discarded her like she was yesterday's trash. You murdered the mother of your children. ...You really can't look at me, can you?" He looks up from the floor and looks at her.
"You took (Kensi and Grace's) mother and then fed them lies. ...Thank goodness this journey doesn't end here. ...You see, Matt, you were never going to win this one. You spent your life preying on innocent people. ...But love trumps evil. Do you hear me, Matt? Love trumps evil." She continues: "(When I see Kari again) she's going to run toward me and knock me over and smother me with kisses. ...God told us he would never forsake us and he hasn't. We have felt his arms around us through this entire process. ...We are so very blessed. We are blessed.
So, what do we do now? Well, first we thank God for bringing us here to this place. ...But next, Jim and I commit our lives to Kensi and Grace. ...We can't give them back their mother, but we want, more than anything in this world, for them to be whole and healthy. You poisoned them. You taught them to hate. But it won't last. It won't last."
She continues: "You have to spend many years in prison. What you did was horrific. It was horrific, Matt. And I believe you're capable of much more evil." Matt Baker shakes his head. She continues: "But....we have to step out and forgive. So, we do. We forgive. Because that's the only way, Matt. ...Love trumps evil."
