    She was also a friend of my son's. Many, many prayers for Nicole and her family as well. All wonderful people.

    I think it's important to note that the road on which she was driving is very curvy, there are no streetlights and it was raining very heavily at the time. From the story, it makes it seem as though she was just speeding. . .I don't think that's quite accurate.

    Another sad tragedy. Reading about children dying makes your heart so heavy with sadness. I pray for her family.

    Nicole was one of my son's friends. I pray for comfort for her family and friends. You just don't know how quickly God will take our kids.
