    Im so sorry to hear about this. I did see where the accident took place, and the cars involved. Such a sad thing. The place where the accident occured has been the scene of other terrible accidents. I hope they make a different speed limit, enforce that - and also a stop light where the crossing guard has to sit! The road is DANGEROUS!

    I am very sorry about her accident. I feel it was a senseless loss of life. Everyday somewhere someone dies from over-correcting and I think it is about time to stop history repeating itself. The DMV and drivers education needs to make it mandatory to demonstrate the act of correcting yourself when you run off the road. Is that too little to ask for this small amendment which I know would save lots of lives? Please contact your local DMV to help get this started, thanks!

    I am really sorry this has happened to you and your family. All you can do now is love that child with your whole heart and tell her about her MOMMY.
    I will pray for your family and for the Good Lord to look after that child

    This young mother was my neice. She was a wonderful woman who had a bright future ahead of her. She was a wild teenager who had completly turned her live around when she became pregnant. Her daughter was her world. She was excited about her daughter's first birthday and was planning a party for next week-end. Her daughter will turn one year old on Friday April 6th. It is still hard to believe that she is gone in the blink of an eye. Please pray for her family during this terrible time in their lives.
