you are just listening to rumors, the funeral home and other people are saying they did have their seatbelts on, now explain that and how do you think it looks for family to read on and on about the seatbelts. god was ready for tiffany and alex so seatbelts or not it would not matter. he needed a first baseman for baseball and softball. the family of these kids do not anymore to add to them so the people with the seatbelt and cell phone remarks need to keep them to therselves or tell somebody that will care.
Friends should be with friends at a time like this, Why do you speak to the family through a news forum? I would not think someone who just lost a child would be on a computer. What makes you think God had anything to do with this?

Dec. 30,2007 I just want people to know that rumors hurt other people and to let everyone know that the kids did not have seat belts on but that doesn't matter because they r in a better place than we r now. This tradegy hasn't only affected the Cress family but also the Fritts family too. We also need your prayers during the recovery of the grandmother, Georgie Fritts. We would like to thank everyone who has prayed for us during this loss and who will continue to pray for our families. Thank You very much.

the major cause of hi-way carnage

excessive speed.on 1-77 and i 95 would be and average of 25 miles per hour over the posted limit.
i now avoid the main hi-ways because of the risk.

the solution,enforce the laws.pass new laws.

20 miles per hour over speed limit fine $1,000.00
second offense loss of drivers license for two years

it breaks my heart to see the home for sale that i watched the children make a home. it still seems unreal that this occurred. God Bless Mt Pleasant for honoring the one year anniversary of an unforgetful community tragedy. i hope the family has faired as bes they can and God Bless you all for pulling through this. the only positive thing is that we were blessed with them for the short time we were allowed, and for the shining light that the children were while they lived in their eartly bodies.

Also stay off the cell phones. There have been more accidents recently of people running off the road,or running off the road and over correcting and the cars end up flipping. Just have a feeling the attention was being paid to the cell phone and not the driving
My mother was not on the cell phone at the time of the accident. There was other factors realted to this accident, not to be disclosed of at this time. We all miss both of these kids and loved them very much. Everyone needs to hear both sides of the story and not just one. My mother is still suffering from this accident and will till the day she dies. It isn't all about Linda, she has a mother she needs to show she loves her regardless of what has happened. Actions speak louder than words. Remember we could have had 4 funerals instead of 2. Judge not lest ye be judged.

I was Linda,s boyfriend at the time of the accident.I want everyone out there to know that Marshas comment about linda needing to show her mother more love and being more involved is the most outragious line of bull that has ever been printed.Anybody that knows you Marsha already understands this!
I personally escorted Linda everyday to the {nurseing home] as soon as she was physically able and that was when Linda was still in a wheelchair, so she could be with her,wash her hair ect.She continued to do this until her mom came home.Thats when marsha and Frittz isolated linda not keeping Linda informed when her mom fell and in the hospial ,when she had doctor,s visits ect.They make it difficult for Georgie to even call Linda, and the list goes on....Linda loves her mom and misses her very much.If you only knew the actions of what supposed to be these god loving people, especially you that go to church with them, Nasty phones calls to linda and her aunt ,notes with the "B" word on our windshield that i personally retrieved, ect. i,m sure u would move them quickly to the front of the prayer list.

Our whole family has suffered greatly from the loss of Tiff and Alex. Aunt Georgie loves her WHOLE family dearly. however since the accident we have been kept from her. I refuse to allow my mom to go to her home alone, b/c I do not want her exposed to the drama and manipulation of certain people. The sad part is that we aren't able to see her often, like things use to be. Prior to the accident, we all (Aunt Georgie, Linda, Mom and I) went on vacations together, saw each other atleast once a week, and talked regularly. It is really sad when jealousy and ones own control issues divide a family. It is also very sad that a "caregiver" treats their loved one with such contempt and hatefulness. It is perfectly okay that Marsha tries to make our family out to be the vilains, b/c God knows as do the other family members.

I am a friend of the mother of Tiffany and Alex. She is still griefing the loss of her children. These children were her whole life. There would had been nothing that she would had nad done for the. Linda's family has been so ugly to her. I feel so sorry for Linda. Where all of us was spending time with family and friends this Christmas season, Linda spent her days at her house. Not wanting to face the world, not wanting to be around people. Linda has a heart of gold. She is a wonderful person. Please continue to pray for Linda that God will somehow someway let her fill at peace and find the strengh day to day.

Yes it is sad this has happened but all Linda's family has tried to be there for her but she doesn't want some of her families help. I know Marsha and she has said more than one time that she wish that they could be a family again. It is time that everyone move on, not forget the children, but love your family while they are still here. Marsha is not what everyone is making her out to be. I have known her a very long time and she is a kind and caring person who would give you the shirt off her back. Marsha wants Linda to be part of her mothers life and will not stand in the way of that. She does not control her mother nor does she tell her what to do or who to talk to. Marsha simply loves her mother in words and actions and so should Linda.

The only way Marsha would give you the shirt off her back is if you would buy it from her, and furthermore who would wear it after that!!!

I don't know who you are but Marsha has been a true friend to me and I know who she is and what she stands for.It isn't about the money on her part, but what about the money Linda never paid her mother back for the trip that never got to be taken. Back off Marsha and I'll be praying for your crew. Just give her a chance.
