    Marjorie was truely an angel. I never knew anyone that loved all God's creatures like this sweet lady did. I wasn't there when this accident happened but she did live on a busy stretch of highway that people do drive fast on. (even if the sheriff lives across the street) But no matter what happened Marjorie would not want anyone to be talked badly about. My prayers go out to both families. This is a bad time for them. I pray all her "babies" will continue to be taken care of. This world is now missing an angel.You rest sweet one and enjoy seeing all the "babies" at the rainbow bridge!

    To everyone, when God calls you home, it doesn't matter where you are, or whom you are with, we are living on borrowed time. People need to be more compassionate, forgiving and understanding, the world would be a better place.

    I am saying a prayer for both families. This is so tramatic.

    I have known Mrs. Marjorie at least 15 years and loved her like a grandmother. She would have never wanted people to say anything bad or ugly about the accident or how it happened. Things happen. Please remember her with good thoughts and memories. She was a "Phenomenal Woman". She is at home now with the "Lord". That is where she wants to be. Our prayers go out to both families. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

    what a terrible tragedy, my heart goes out to the Griffin family and Mrs. Kiricoples as this is no doubt a extremely difficult time for all parties involved. And those of you pointing the finger should be ashamed of yourselves.

    To all of you who are judging Judy,the driver of the SUV, I know her personally and I know that she is devistated and completely heartbroken over this tragedy.She is a wonderful person with a heart of gold who would never intentionally hurt anyone. Please, please put yourselves in her shoes for a moment and I beg you to curtail your judgemental comments and continue to pray for both of these families as there is unimaginable pain ahead for all.

    Right on me. You people seem so eager to convict the SUV driver with out FACTS! How many of you were on scene? Hey Betty, did you see her turn signal? Were you there Betty? You failed to use your brain Betty What do you mean set up J? You must be reading ANOTHER STORY, J. Pay attention J. How can you ASSume J someone was not paying attention. The families of both drivers need consideration and thought which some of you have expressed in prayer. How would one of us and our families feel if we were responsible for the death of another driver? Consider that before you pop off with negative un called for comments.
