Has an account been set up so the public can assist with funeral costs for these families? I Imagine there was no insurance on the kids at least. Let's help these familes through payer and financial assistance and stop the hateful comments which have no basis.

All those hateful comments are coming from one person and one person only. I have copy and pasted each of the remarks that I was able to see before the kind moderaters took them off for the family. I even turned in a few of them myself, so they are watching out for the comments now too.

The family can sue this person for libel if they wanted to. Possibly slander, but that would be up to an attorney to decide once they see all of the remarks in black and white. I am sure that there is an attorney in town who would love to take that case on.

The person doing it uses many different ip's so don't be fooled because they have been using different names or that different towns are showing up under their numerous fake names. They are using proxy addresses to do it with. I would be glad to help the family if they decide to sue this jerk. And topix has helped people in other cities and towns that have had the same kind of problem with some body, so getting their cooperation wouldn't be any problem.

I simply hate it when people get on here with anonymous names and think they can say anything they want and hurt people while they stay a coward and do it without letting any body else know who they are. It's time that someone paid for it finally.

My prayers are with everyone who knew and loved this family. Let me know if I can help the family by sending the copy and pastes of this idiots remarks against them to an attorney. I'd be so pleased to see who this is and have it plastered all over the news!
heyyy

What a tragedy. I watched the piece on WYMT the morning and actually had tears come to my eyes. Those little girls were so beautiful. I am looking for a contact to make a donation tothe cost of the funeral but am unabe to locate one. Could someone post a number of a business taking donations. I feel so bad for the parents and may they find the strength to carry on for the rest of the children. May God bless all of the family.

Go to knoxfuneralhome.com their obituary is on there, and I'm sure if you call them, someone can tell you how to make a donation. That's what community is all about, helping each other in times of need. Thank you for caring!
