A wonderful and beautiful girl from VTHS died this past weekend. She had all of the beautiful characteristics of a child of God; but, did anyone care? Did the teachers at VTHS that told her she could not march at graduation "because she would be too slow and hold up the line" care or come to her funeral? This town amazes me and makes me so ashamed of being a part of this mentality. I'm looking to get out of her ASAP. So many of you disappoint and embarrass the God fearing people of this world. You need to look in the mirror and change your ways.

I saw the obituary for a young girl in town who seemed to be an animal lover and kind soul. I was wondering what happened to her? If there is any truth to her not being allowed to walk in graduation - teachers at VTHS should be shamed and reprimanded. I pray for the family of the lost girl, and hope she's finally at peace.

Its unfortunate that coupled with the peace and serenity of this town you find ignorance and a lack of understanding that isn't present in many other places. Hopefully one day the people who wronged this poor young girl make right what they did, or are at the very least penalized. Im sorry for your loss, may this young woman rest in peace.

This girl was a sweet and wonderful girl and died from natural causes; but, the bullies, including VTHS gym teachers, have much to be ashamed of. I pray for her family and their healing

I don't know her name but I believe she died from a heart problem due to being overweight. Regardless, that was wrong of the teachers to do.

Kristin, It was Joe Presher's sister Angel. She was in Kyle's grade. All the comments were true. A real shame, a lovely girl and of course no surprise how she was overlooked. Shes a beautiful angel now.

I knew Stephanie Brock. She was my best friend's cousin. She was so nice. The last thing she said to me was that I was cute & small :) We will miss her very much. I was at her wake and there was A LOT of people there!

I just googled my sister's name for some reason- this is something I have done probably 100 times since she passed away. My sister, Angel, died at age 19 on March 9, 2012, from a pulmonary embolism. She had no symptoms and the medical examiner said it was like a light switch- she did not know it was happening and didn't feel anything.
It is very hard for me to talk about her death because almost 2 years later I still cannot believe she is gone. She did struggle with the people of VTHS- teachers, principals and fellow classmates.
Let us remember the wonderful soul she was and hope her life changed the awful people who tortured her.

Unfortunately bullying with never cease, however, the impact it truly leaves on those who are victims and their families can be devastating for years to come.

We expect some form of bullying to occur within a school environment, however, to the teachers and staff who turned their back and actually, threw insults themselves, there are no words to describe the disgust I have for you. Taunting someone and blaming them for their own ridicule is just as obscene as telling someone who was raped that it was their fault.

I knew Angel Presher very well. She might have not look like everyone else, but she certainly did not act like everyone else either. She never wanted to hurt anyone as bad as she had been hurt.

If anything is gained in this tragedy, it is please think before you speak or act. If you would not wish to be treated that way, than do not treat others that way either.
