I was a good friend of the deceased. She did not overdose. She was a former soccer coach (volunteer of course), and incredible asset to the community. She left behind two beautiful children and a devoted husband, all three of which are devastated. They want their mom and wife back. THere will be no mother watching at the little league games and no mother watching her daughter walk down the graduation or wedding aisle. Some of you should feel ashamed of yourselves. Such a huge loss in a child's life is not a matter to trivialize or make jokes about.

Please accept my condolences for you and on behalf of this devastated family. Many prayers.

Only on the internet can people hide behind their words and say things that they would not say in person. It takes a coward to write the crude and unsensitive remarks that have been written about this woman.
My sincere sympathy to her family and friends at this very difficult time.

I am very sorry to hear about your friend's loss. Please try to ignore the insensitive comments that people like to post.

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.


Wow you really need to put the crackpipe down and turn off the Jerry Springer show and get out of your trailer park more often.....Saranac is a very nice, clean town,with some very nice homes. you must live in north Montucky...

I feel sorry for you. You are calling my home town "trashy", yet you call yourself whitetrashville. Yea drugs are in this town... but what town doesnt have drugs running through it. Ionia isnt that bad of a place. It was an accident. That was my little sisters' best friend's mom. I cant believe that you people are so heartless. I was there working when it happened. You need to grow up and get your life together. Stop trashing other people when it is you that needs the help... not Ionia!

Wow! Tripping out to the max at the local Walmart!! Dang all nite stores!!
Although I'm poking fun, this is really very sad.
It happened during the middle of the day. So what does it being an all nite store have to do with it? It was a tragic death, nothing to poke fun about.

Actually I LIVE just outside of Saranac- which by the way, there is a nasty old trailer park right smack dab in the middle of, correct?. Not by 'choice', though. I hate it. It is a complete hole. Take a drive down Darby and tell me that the homes on that road are nice. Single wide broken trailers with cars and junk littering everywhere. Then continue on into town past the house that has nothing but junk comepletely, and I mean compeltely, filling their front yard. Then go thru town, past all the closed up shops, the bars, and old run down vacant buildings. Drive thru all the streets in t own and see the crap in peoples yards, run down houses, etc. Ive never known a t own to allow trailers in there, let alone allow people to keep so much crap on their property.

As I said, there is nothing good about that whole area. The whole drive between Saranac and Ionia is filled up with even more broken down single wide trailers, borken down cars, junk, etc. It a welfare and drug user haven.

I dont have to know what I am talking about to point this out. All it takes is for a 'normal' person from a nice, average town to drive thru these places and see for themselves. People dont need to take my word for it. They can see it with their own eyes!
