Does this mean that in the long run, the state and my taxes with take care of the kids, including a college education?

To King of all Blacks:

If your tax dollars will help take care of the kids and send them to college, then it's money that will be well spent.

To the Estrada Family: God Bless all of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

No. Her sister will see to it that the INNOCENT children are taken care of. Your tax dollars will keep a killer clothed, fed and provided for in prison hopefully for the rest of his pitiful life. He will probably have the opportunity for a college education while your tax dollars pay for it.
To all the Estradas May God bless all of you at this most difficult time.

What an A*S you are. What have these children done to you? I understand people making these comments when someone is busting out kids left and right but even still the children are innocent. They didn't ask to be here. And in a situation like this, who gives a damn who takes care of them as long as they are taken care of? Talking about paying for a college education, you don't even use correct grammar so who paid for your college education?

Why should you worry about what's going on in Pa. Obvisouly you have no life that you have to worry about whats happening in York, Pa. Worry about NJ. What does the state of NJ. have anything to do with Pa. taxes. The King of what.........yeah right! May God look over the Estrada Family.

If you did not know Sally, then you do NOT need to worry if YOUR tax dollars will pay for her children. As a friend and coworker of hers I can tell you she was a very hard worker and so are her sisters! Those children will be well taken care of. Amelia and Cristina-Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Sally will be greatly missed by many of us!

God Bless this family and know that your friends and family are only a phone call away if you need anything.
~This Estrada family has always been such a close knitted family and are full of so much love and compassion. I know that you will raise those children as if they were your own, and give them a stable environment to grow up in.
~God Bless you and your family.

I briefly remember her from my child hood, but what i do remember of her is something beautiful. I remember her as a person who loved children, made people laugh and was very kind. She will be in my thoughts and prayers, for her and her family were very kind to mine.

You are as ignorant and trifling as they come, you have no shame at all, you think your post is funny and it's not, a young hard working mother lost her life, her children are hurt that they won't get to see their mother on this earth anymore, she won't ever see her children graduate from high school or college, and all you have to do with your sorry life is make fun of this tragic situation, God help you... Your comment is unthinkable, good luck with your lonely life sir because you're gonna need it.

Estrada family, I'm so sorry for the loss of your loved one, God Bless You All... There will come a day when you all will be together again.

SALLY WAS WITH MY COUSIN, THE FATHER OF HER BOYS AND AS LONG AS I HAVE KNOWN HER, SHE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE ON HER FACE AND A JOKE IN HER MOUTH. NO MATTER WHAT, SHE TRIED HER BEST TO RAISE HER FOUR CHILDREN AND DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING MORE BUT TO SUCCEED AS A MOTHER. SALLY WAS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON INSIDE AND OUT. I WILL MISS HER BECAUS ESHE WAS APART OF MY FAMILY FOR SO LONG. I GRIEVE FOR HER FOUR CHILDREN AND HER FAMILY.

The Estradas are beautiful people. Sally was in my graduating class at The Berm and we lost touch over the years. In the time that I did know her, I also got to know her sisters and her mother a bit. Sally was giving, accepting and just awesome. She will be sorely missed. God be with all of the Estradas.
