Ok the death of brianna is sad yes but why blamm it on her father all he was doing was taking his daughters to school.Yes it is sad very but it was raining what do you exspeck ok you check the roads at 3:00 in the morning 6:00 dont you think that it would freeze up so blame it on the person who said that we should not come to school on a 2-hour daily and if we did brianna nicloe howell would still be here today.Me and brianna were really close.We were so close it fells like i just lost my sisiter that is how close me were.And some newspeople are saying that her father was drunk.That is a lie he would never drink and drive so the next time anybody wants to give out information first get it STRAIGHT before you start talking get right please.Maybe the next time we have rain a lot maybe after the lost of a sweet,loving,funny,and caring girl they will be extra careful because i dont belive the people that said oh go to school is going to get out of this one easy.BRIANNA NICLOE HOWELL 1993-2005 will be deeply missed by all of her friends and family but for some of us like i said how was close to her her sister will miss her to.We love you REST IN PEACE

i think that we should have went to school on a 2 hour delay and i think by this Granvile county will learn its lesson. And i think that Mr Callaghan would to. Me and Brianna have been friends ever scence i first moved here even though when iwent to middle school we did not tlak alot but me and her sister charley did and that day was the most terribale day ever i had to leave school because i could not take all of the pain and heartache it put me through. and i hope by this that they will have learned their lesson. well anyway brianna is in a better place now and no more harm can be done to hr R.I.P Brianna luv ya always.
