Evil has only one definition and serves only one purpose.
The dictionary defines evil, morally wrong with the intention to cause misfortune, suffering or injury. It doesn’t qualify an act that causes harm to another is less evil if it is done to help a friend accomplish an unlawful goal, obtain the rightful inheritance of another, theft of property that is not rightfully/legally that of the friend asking for assistance.
“Evil is always a choice one has made – indeed a whole series of choices. Whenever there is evil, there’s a lie around.
Evil always has something to do with lies.”
People of the lie, by Dr. M. Scott Peck (1998)
Dr Peck’s familiar quote is confirmed in a newspaper story by Brian Wallace, staff writer for Lancaster, Pennsylvania Intelligencer newspaper, He wrote on May 24, 2011:
“William Werneke declined to comment on the case, and Frackman
referred a request for comment to her attorney, Steven Fairlie.
Fairlie, who also represents Lisa Miller Werneke, said the three witnesses
were not aware the will had been forged and agreed to sign the document as witnesses only to help Darlene Zachry in a time of need.
According to the criminal complaint, Raymond Zachry died unexpectedly
Sept. 25, 2007, while waxing his truck outside the Souderton home he shared
with his wife of 18 months.
Frackman and the Wernekes initially testified that they had signed the will in
the presence of Raymond Zachry, but later changed their stories,
according to investigators.
“The will that was filed by Darlene Zachry was signed by them after the death
of Raymond Zachry and … it was Darlene who asked them to sign the will,”
according to the criminal complaint.
Fairlie said Frackman and the Wernekes were not aware the will was forged.
Darlene Zachry told them her husband had signed his will but neglected to
have a witness attest to his signature, so she asked them to help her out, he said.
“They had no reason to believe” Raymond Zachry’s signature was forged. Once
the will was contested, “it just snowballed from there,” he said.
“They’re not criminals. They’re the kind of people who would do anything in
the world for you.”
Dr. Peck correctly described evil and it is vividly illustrated in the actions of the widow, Darlene M. Zachry, her sister Annetta Frackman, and “friends” Lisa and William “Bill” Werneke.
- The lie about the will having a valid signature (by Darlene Miller Zachry)
- Then, the choice (Werneke’s decide to witness the will of their “friend”)
- Conspiracy, to cover up their act (more lies)
Who are the victims? Werneke & Werneke claim they are the victims. They only acted to help their friend (the new widow), they say. But given many opportunities to correct their misdeed, they continued with the conspiracy rather than speak the truth and stop the cover-up.
Did anyone think about Raymond Zachry’s family? The pain and suffering they endured due to the actions of the group? No, they are considered bad people because they believe their son deserves better treatment from his new wife and old friends. Never thinking of the material “things” in this ordeal, they only asked for information regarding the circumstances surrounding his death, respectful final arrangements and interment with his family who truly loved him.
Raymond believed in loyalty, duty and trust. All, values that were not returned by the people who now think they should be forgiven their unlawful actions. Ray’s family should just go away.
