Broken hearted!

People need to really think about what they say, our family is in so much pain right now. This tragedy took not only a 25 year old beautiful mother but her wonderful three year old son. Even if speed was a factor doesn't mean they deserved to die! This isn't the place to be talking about getting out of your car and teaching people lessons!!!!! How incredibly insensitive. I do hope people realize how precious life is and how quickly this can be taken from you. I'm so broken hearted right now and wish this wasn't a lesson I had to be a part of! Please let us grieve for our loss.

Sherrill Beason thanks so much for your kind words we appreciate and the prayers and support right now. I'm praying for the strength of my whole family as well as baby Athoney's family and all the friends who are suffering right now to make it through this horrible tragedy. Also for god to protect everyone coming in for the services to make it there and safely back home. They were both such beautiful, funfilled, wonderful kids that are gone but will NEVER EVER be forgotten!

I am so devastated but this tragic event. Eric is a kind,loving man with two children of his own that he adores. And completely beside himself with grief. The bottom line is two beautiful people were lost. My heart aches for your family. My family is thinking of yours always. You are all in my prayers.
