"No matter what kind of day I was having, no matter how down or upset I might be, I could always count on coming home and seeing Letha's smile," father John Slate said. "That smile always brightened my day."

After Letha's death her father began a campaign to strengthen Oklahoma's child neglect laws to allow for tougher prosecution of parents whose actions cause death. Gov. Brad Henry signed "The Letha Kay Louise Slate Act" in 2007.
