    It is amazing to me how people can get on the internet and post judgements.Nobody knows what happened except the people who where there and God. Instead of passing judgements we need to be praying for salvation and forgiveness. God is to just to make a mistake so we all need to take heed to these deaths and realize that the only thing that is happening is that God is calling his angels home. To all the bereaved families in this terrible tragedy,May God keep his arms wrapped around you in this time of need. And always remember that he will put not more on us than we can bear.Shirley was a member of my family and it doesn't matter what was on her mind because she is resting in heaven. It is not time to blame anyone it is done and over with NOW WE NEED TO PRAY AND KEEP PRAYING. I love you Shirley and will forever miss you. But God loved you best.

Family members are in pain and folks dont have nothing else better to do. then to post what they think happen and who should be blamed. no body is to be blame, we dont know what happen. god is watching and judgeing so who are we to judge what happen please just leave the comments to support your love not show that you who say dumb things have no home training. shirley i love you and miss you.
