its a shame you had to come here and read so much garbage when im sure none of these people know what its like to lose a child. I cant even begin to imagine. and I dont put it past the newspapers to juice up a story for this exact purpose, ppl to debate who was at fault. when the truth is, it wasnt the father holding his kids or toys or whatever, it wasnt poor Alexis who Im SURE would have chosen not to run into the road if she saw a car (for that idiot who said she wouldnt have chosen to run in the ST!) moron. and it def wasnt the drivers fault, no crosswalk and without warning im sure to everyone... the story makes it seem like a long moment when really its seconds that make this a tragedy. My heart goes out to everyone its affected and you're all in my prayers.Ok...now, I have seen some heartless things in my day, but this takes the cake. My husband was carrying NO bicycles, this was a mistake made by THIS newspaper. The nearest crosswalk (1/2 a mile away) is far more dangerous than crossing at the side streets..anyone that lives here can tell you that. NO one is out on any witch hunt for that driver and I personally plan to speak with him as soon as I can get my own head together. This has been the worst thing that has ever happened to us in our entire lives, but please...stop reading media jibberish, as they have gotten SO many things wrong. I am more angry at the news than anyone about this and I am tired of reading quotes such as "the father was carrying bicycles with the children" as that is an absolutely false statement given by the media to beef up their story. They will soon hear from me (again) about stating that information. Thank you to those that sent prayers, as we can use as many prayers as possible. We miss our daughter and have barely even begun our grieving process, but I believe that every prayer does help. As far as those that have nothing better to do than criticize the situation and yack about someone else's tragedy...God Bless You as well.
Truly and sincerely...thank you for condolences...

What the heck did you expect him to do??? He had to carry the twins and that takes both arms! This was a freak accident and nobody intended for it to happen. Tony was a great father and this incident was NOT his fault. Plus, this car had to be exceeding the speed limit of 35 mph for him to have killed Lexi. The point is that drivers have a responsibility to be aware of their surroundings and if this driver was aware of his surroundings, Lexi would still be here today. Therefore, he deserved this citation and the guilt that he will have to live with until the day that he dies. As for the family, I am so sorry to Candi and Tony. You were great parents to Lexi and at least she left the world with that knowledge.
