A Muerer was also injured in this accident. Can anyone tell me what Muerer family he belongs to here in Lockport. Is that the plumbers son?

I am trying to find out when funeral arrangements will be for Christina. Me and Christina were really close my senior year and her mother was great to me when I had my daughter. My prayers are with the family. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I saw that accident happen, the motorcycles were right in front of our truck. I have been searching online forever trying to find the outcome of that crash. It didnt look good. If you know or hear andyhting about the condition of them, please let me know.It was the most heartbreaking and jawdropping thing I have ever seen.

Steady Grip - I have to agree with you 100% on your comment. No one deserves to die. I used to ride myself and seen some pretty bad accidents happen to people who are just riding for the enjoyment. Just because there are people that ride like jerks does not mean they deserve to die.

So now lawyers solicite facts on topix? Why don't you do your own fact checking and information collection. That's what you get paid to do.

STOP Go to another sight if you have any ignorant coments. Some lawyers put ads in news papers to find out if anyone from the public saw something...police use the media channel 5,7,2.and 9, or do you not watch t.v? Just keep in mind these fanilies are hurting and need answers and help there is no room for anything but good old fashion kind and consideration in the death of children.

I didn't see anything ignorant towards the family in Hello's comment. You must be a lawyer. Typical lawyers, too much time on their hands. I would think the people interviewed that were at the scene would be your best asset. I mean come on I could say I was there and saw something and you can't prove that I didn't. That's why they take the names and numbers of people who are there. Who are you to preach, you read too much into the comment which I am sure you will do to mine as well. For the record my thought are with the FAMILY for the lawyers it's all about the money and the win, don't tell me different, I've been there.

Boy talk about reading too much into something, settle down. I hear nothing negative here toward the family, you are the one ranting on and on and calling people stuipid for not watching tv. There is a difference between a newscater saying if you have any info please call police and someone posting on this site. This site is purly entertainment and a place for trivial information and a law firm looks like a joke posing here. Does the law firm have a my space page too? Get off your high horse.

Jan,

I am Beverly's daughter. My name is also Beverly. I just happened to go on here and saw your post. I am very sorry to tell you this way, but Mom passed away on Febuary 18, 2009. This has been a nightmare. We cannot believe she is gone. I miss her so much. I used to talk to her on the phone 3 or 4 times a day. If you have any questions, please feel free to write back. Again, I'm sorry to let you know this way.
