I just wanted to let the family know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. I lived in Big Rapids for about 10 years and have been to Hemlock Park many times. The water has always been off limits to my girls because of the currents. I just hope that something positive comes out of this tragedy. I would suggest the city of Big Rapids to put up signs warning people about the dangerous currents in that water. My heart goes out to the mom and although I am in Stone Mountain, Georgia now it hurts because I have children of my own and I could not imagine going through what she has to.

My prayers go out to the family of the two girls. If this could somehow reach their elder sister, Shyann, I want to let her know that it will be okay and that she will always be in my heart. If you ever need comforting, remember, God will always be there, and so will I.

If i could go back in time then i would go back to friday night because i had my chance to go to hemlock park and i didnt want to. but if i would have, i would have wanted to be the one that was there to jump in and save them. I wish the Simmonds family the best of luck on finding them, and i will be attending the memorial.

It's been 3 years since the tragedy. Shelila would be graduating with me next year. We all miss her and Ariella.

But the reports are wrong. Their friend was not drowning. Not was fake. And two amazing girls died because of her.
