My prayers are with Ashlyn and Devon's family at this time as I can not imagine the hurt they are experiencing. I had the pleasure of befriending both young women in high school and they were the most loyal friends I have ever had, I am sure many more people can agree they were awesome and loving people. Everyday they made me laugh and I will be forever grateful for all the good times we shared together and will cherish those moments until I see you both again.

I can't begin to imagine your pain. Ashlyn was one of my students at DTCC. We stayed in touch on Facebook and I often commented on her friendship with her was wonderful to see how close they were. May God and your memories of your beautiful daughters bring you peace.

My prayers are with your family. I understand your devastation as the white cross on the pole just before the accident site is for my daughter who also died at that intersection at the tender age of 23. You will survive, one day at a time.

You are not dead.
As a matter of fact nobody ever dies.
You want to know why?
Because you're going to live inside everybody
who ever knew you, everyone you ever touched no matter how little.
And the people who love you-
your mom, your dad,
your brothers, sisters,
your friends at school-
they're never going to stop
thinking about you.
Or talking about you.
They're never going to forget you
cause that never goes away.
You're never going to die
cause you were loved.
Because you loved.
You're going to live forever.
We all will."
