so sad .....prayers to the families.........
I would just like to say that I knew both the people involved in this accident. My prayers are with their families. Since their names have not yet been published I will not name them, I will only express how sad this makes me.
Thanks for not posting the names. I trust the Sheriff's Office will release them when they are confident all notifications are completed.
Me too Howard. I know word gets out fast, but in the event that someone doesn't know, it's good to respect the families.
