          This story really isn’t an appropriate place to have a God debate. My prayers go out to them.

  • meh

  • close em

    Trailer parks are trailer parks, whether in town or the middle of nowhere.

    • Meh

      SMH that has nothing to do with a damn trailer park!!

    • Friendly post

      You have no idea what you are talking about and you’re heartless. A young girl got murdered and you blame it on the neighborhood? Condolences with the family and to your heart. Keep your rude comments to yourself. Your “facts” are irrelevant.

    • JustaDude

      Close em you’re an idiot. Are you saying no one gets killed in a stick house? At a time like this we can always count on someone so insensitive as to make some stupid remark like this. People are killed everyday and at every socio-economic level and in every kind of structurual environment but you know this you just wanted to cause drama but really it gets so old that there are people like you among the human race.

  • yep

    Words do not describe what the friends feel for this family. They are a sweet and loving family that had touched many lives is a good way. This will be hard for thier family and impossible to comprehend. We love them all and our hearts are with one should ever have to go through a casualty such as this and I wish I knew what to do for them but we only can offer the fact everyone they know will be there for them no matter what they need. My family’s love and help is there for the taking
