My condolences go out to the girl's family. Everyone fly's down that street. I was passed yesterday by a minivan like I was sitting still. I was driving 30mph. This is our neighborhood. Lets all slow down! Take your car to the track if you want to race!

Christina was an incredible young girl who's life was cut short because a young man wanted to speed around a truck to get somewhere faster. He now must live with the knowledge that he took away someone's daughter, sister, girlfriend, and a close friend to many.

A wonderful girl who loved many and was loved by many more. We will miss her greatly! She would have wanted us to forgive the man that was speeding, but it is hard. Everyone but God loses.The Lord has another Angel.

I know Christina was a great person and so is the young man that hit her. We were not there to know what happened. Only God knows what really happened. Everybody speeds down that street. And plus there is a stop sign also on Hale. So stop means stop, look and then go if it is safe to do so. The young man will have to live with this to the end. And I know he will regret it for the rest of his life. Do not blame someone if you do not know what happened.
