I used to live in Weleetka when I was their age. I walked some of those streets, even after dark, with my best friend too. It was decades ago. I remember a sleepy little town where I felt safe. My love and thoughts are with the families and the towns people of Weleetka. May you find comfort in knowing the girls rest in the arms of their angels.
Deepest Love and Brightest Blessings.

I am in disbelieve of this event Weleetka was my hometown I grew up in Weleetka and went to school there all my life. It is just hard to image something so tradgic would happen in the small town of Weleetka. My prayers and thoughts go out to the parents and relatives of these two girl, I didn't know them personally but my heart just broke when I heard the news. God Bless Everyone,and keep you safe.

Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same

In Christ, there are no goodbye
And in Christ, there is no end

I just signed Taylor's guestbook and feel the need to offer the same respects here. Again, I knew neither of these girls, but their stories have touched my heart. As a member or LifeChurch and a Cast Member in Toon Town (6 yr old-4th grade), I can only imagine what it would be like to lose one of those precious kids. May God be with these girls families and may He accept them with open arms and love them as they never knew. "If Home's where my heart is than I'm out of place." ~Homesick by MercyMe

My thoughts have been on your family and friends. One of my twins and my 1 year old baby were killed. Our case is an unsolved homocide from 2001. My twins birthday just passed, my daughter would've been 12, and my babies birthday is on the 23rd. I know the heartbreak. At least if I can't have any closure, I hope and pray that they find who did this so you all can have yours. God bless you.
