    Brantley and Miles were both very wonderful people..just the best. Maybe God sent us two angels 18 years ago to help out down here and now they are helping from heaven. Thoughts and prayers to the many loved ones involved.

    This is so sad- They had no idea coming down from Durham, looking forward to a weekend at the beach, that they would end up losing their lives in such a way. It is so easy for us all to take life for granted and this accident goes to show how quickly it can be taken away. My sincerest thoughts & prayers are with the families, friends and responders of this accident.
