He fulfilled his jealous rage; and should pay for it with his life!

He better be glad the police is guarding him, after his paltry attempt to take his life, because their family don't play that. He would get dealt with, for real!

Mia, was angelic in ways most women aren't. Her spirit was truly sent from heaven, and I believe that its where it rests', now, and forever more.

Sometimes when two people shouldn't be together things like this happen. How does it go that far? I am praying from both families. There are going to be children on both sides left without a parent. Nothing going to changed what happen the only thing we can do in this situation is pray for both families. There was not 1 life lost but 2. Once a couple takes steps toward being with each other it so important to incorporate Christ in your relationship because Satan is busy.

He accomplished nothing! Mia is gone and now her baby is going to have to deal with this the rest of her life. I am so angry right now but I know that he WILL suffer if he lives and the day he does die he will have to ANSWER TO GOD!

Mia was a beautiful women, kind, caring, and a wonderful mother. She will truely be missed!

I do feel some kind of way for his family, but i am a part of Mia's family and i feel soo hurt,empty, and very angry. I don't feel anything for fred. FRED was weak. If he couldnt live without Mia, then he should have took his own life not hers. Fred needs to live so that he can suffer. Send his weak @%$ to jail and let some of the fella's _uck him for life. Thats what he did to Mia's daughter, _ucked her out of a mother for life.

Nothing can justify anyone's untimely death. There is pain on both sides of these families and children affected. Now is a time for Mia's family to stay prayed up while they seek justice through the courts and know that Mia is in a better place, than we are. Give much love to her little girl who will forever remember that day as being her worst and also remembering her mom in many special ways. Let's Pray... Father God, please give Mia's family and friends the strenght to carry on. We know, you make no mistakes and we accept your decision today. Please bless those children who is now without a parent and further touch the people who is in sorrow. Amen.

What color is envy?
If you''re still alive, you feel it,
When persons do not notice your worth,
By someone who
And their praise is given to another.
Is it yellow?
I think not.
Yellow is too bright.
What color is envy?
If you''re living, you''re feeling it.
When another is declared the champ
By someone who shouldn''t be judging,
And you did better, but lost.
Is it orange?
I think not.
Orange is too warm.
What color is envy?
If you''ve worked, you''ve felt it.
When you''re passed over for a promotion
by someone not as creditable as you,
And your value is ignored.
Is it red?
I think not.
Red is too fiery.
What color is envy?
If you''ve loved, you''ve felt it.
When you want to be loved exclusively
By someone who''s special, but you''re not,
And another has his or her heart.
Is it blue?
I think not.
Blue is too clear.
What color is envy?
If you suffer injustice, you''ve felt it.
When you want respect and are shunned
by someone who''s prejudiced, you''re not,
And there''s nothing you can do.
Is it purple?
I think not.
Purple is too sacred.
What color is envy?
If you''ve been poor, you''ve felt it.
when talent and work isn''t appreciated.
Someone pays low wages, bills mount,
and you work two or three jobs.
Is it black?
I think not.
Black is too inclusive.
What color is envy?
If you suffer alone, you''ve felt it,
when there''s no response to your overtures
by a certain someone, no one cares but you,
and it appears you''ve been forgotten.
Is it green?
I think so.
Green is jealousy.
Green is the color that sustains plantlife,
and if not controlled,
it can become a jungle for vegetation.
Envy, likewise, can become a crime,
and if not controlled,
it becomes a jungle for the ruthless.
You can't rewrite the past. For that you must REPENT

James 3:14-16
14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.

Mia was such a beautiful, vibrant, loving, responsible young lady. She was johnny-on-the-spot if you needed something. I told Mia that I wish I had a clock radio that plays CDS. Lickety split - she brought me one. She was my biggest supporter and my biggest critic; "Momma, your butt is getting a little too big.....". I remember when I told her I was going back to school, she was so proud of me. I always wanted a lot of children, and after I gave birth to three boys, I didn't want to stop until I had a girl. Mia was the next baby and her Daddy was so proud, he called her his "Peach". Such an appropriate name. She was bald except for a little tuft of hair up front; I would put a little barrett in it. We gave her two little sisters. I have six babies.
I cannot believe she is gone. I love her so very much. Your comments and prayers are much appreciated. Love, Brenda

Mia came to train in our department and she was so vibrant, beautiful and kind. I was shocked to learn about this today and am so sad. My prayers go out to her family. God Bless all of you, we will truly miss her!

I can't seem to get over it. Mia was such a beautiful, vibrant, loving, and caring person. Her personality would quickly light up a room. I'm still seeking peace and understanding from God about this situation, but I know God never makes mistakes.

To her family, please stay strong and encouraged throughout this trying time. If her daughter grows up to be anything like her mother, she'll be nothing short of amazing!

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I was going to do their wedding photos.

Knowing both of them... I would never of thought this would have happened... My every thought and prayers are out to both families but most of all both of their children who have now lost both parents. Despite Satan's presence on this very sad night, God will prevail....

Mia is a sparkle in the sky. A one of a kind! Her smile would light up the room and her laughter would spread to everyone. I have know the Reid Family for 17 years and I can feel the pain of losing such a wonderful person. The wonderful memories of her will live on forever!!

How dare this person who calls himself a man take Mia's life? How dare you Fred!! How dare you take Mia from us!! He is a selfish and cowardly person. God will deal with you sooner than you think.......
