Okay I work at that Wal*Mart....and wow it was drama all day :( So so sad...my thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends. And we did not hear it was an overdose, but...then again rumors can spread like crazy in the workplace.

Oh and another thing; for all of you making fun of this situation..the whole "Only in Ionia." "clean up in aisle 6" it's not funny! Do you know how hard it is to work when there is police, ambulance and customers asking "what happened!!"??? Hmm...you guys need to mature a little and stop making a joke. Someone's family was affected!! GROW UP!

Well, I am not joking about it. The comment "Only in Ionia" was referring to the fact that drugs run rampant in that town, and it is so trashy of a place that it is no surpise someone would O.D in the Walmart parking lot.

Ionia is filled with drugs, poverty, welfare using people with run down houses and trailers. Same goes for pretty much all the towns around it (for instance, Saranac). That whole area is the armpit of Michigan.

Sure they are trying to make it look like Ionia is getting better to those coming right off the highway with brand new meijers, walmart, restaurants. But then again, you have to pass 'Shirleys back door'& tons of abandoned homes to get to even that 'nice' part of town.

Fact is, you can polish a t*rd all you want, but it will always be a t*rd.

Didn't I just see a story about WalMart rolling back drug prices?
Coincidence?

This woman was a good friend of mine. I am deeply saddened by the loss. She was a good person and her family and friends are devastated by her loss. The truth is that they do NOT know for sure why she passed away. Your comments are rude and insensitive.

Obviously you've never been to Saranac. Ionia is a pit, yes. Saranac is actually a nice little town, and it's very clean. Night and day difference between Ionia and Saranac.

I can hardly believe you people share the same air I do. How heartless can you be. I have no idea who this was but I have a heart and find it hard to believe you people are posting such inappropriate comments.

I feel the same way. This type of insensitivity abounds on the internet. It's everywhere you look.

This person was someones loved one and someone, somewhere, is desperately feeling the pain from her death.

Whatever happened to a sense of community about the human race?

No wonder we are becoming a nation of idiots and hethens. Look at the gene pool.

If you don't know who you are talking about than why are you posting such horrible things? How would you feel if someone posted similar things about your mom, wife, aunt, sister, or friend. I know this individual and I know that her young children don't need to read this junk or hear about it from thier classmates at school. You all should be ashamed at yourselves. Quit assuming things that you don't know and let her rest in peace.
