The only thing i have to say is that this is a tragic incident... it shouldn't have happened. It could have been avoided if Jennifer just would have had a designated driver or would have made the right choice not to drink at all. I can't believe my sister in law is responsible for not just 1 death, but 3. My husband is distraught over this, but she was irresponsible & negligent. She has to pay for the crime she commited. My heart goes out to the families that lost their loved ones.

I want to thank you Tara. I am a relative of Teairra Washington-Thomas, the driver of the car. I had the traumatic job of telling my daughter, that her sister was dead. I also have the traumatic vision of seeing my daughter cry for hours on end, and the only time she is not is when she is sleeping, I don't know what Jennifer was thinking, when she decided to get in this car, travel at the speed she was traveling, and then run from the scene. I want to be angry but I can't. She will need every bit of strength to get through what she has done. How can she live with herself, my family and the rest of the families are devastated. Teairra's neck was broken, not to mention all the other injuries she got. I pray that she will be able to live with herself, this is a heavy, heavy burden to carry

Here is another idiot who has the nerve to make such a condescending comment. How in the world can someone ever "grow up, move on, and get over it? " We are talking about our loved ones here, obviously you don't have any, or maybe you don't have any that care anything about you. 3 young people lost their lives they were between 23-24 years of age. They had only just begun living. If you can't say anything with respect, just don't say anything at all. Just by the words you have written, one can tell that you have no substance, and also no value for yourself. Pray and again I only say if you actually have someone that cares about you, that you never have to experience going to the morgue to identify a loved one of yours, or better yet hopefully they will not have to come identify you.(NIMWIT!)

Happy Bday Teairra. I miss you still. The last time I saw you I was six months pregnant. It was on your birthday last year. It was so hard to walk into you and Brandon's funeral. You both are greatly GREATLY missed, and I think about you often. I wished you could've met my child. She would've loved you as I do.

I miss you teairra!! i wrote you a poem...here...
I miss you so much since you passed away
There's a place in my heart you'll always stay
My pain and sorrow is why I weep
I know your resting in peaceful sleep
And I know it's selfish to want you here
For your love and wisdom that I hold dear
So I'll try to remember we're not really apart
And I can feel your presence in my heart
I'll never forget you and you will always be
My most precious and loving memory
So enjoy your rewards, You rest in peace
I'll take comfort in knowing again we'll meet.
T...I miss you so much!!

I knew teairra most of her life.She was the most beautiful young lady I had ever met. She was the first person to show me unconditional love. She loved me for me. Inspite of my many flaws. She saw the good in me. She gave me hope to go on. To continue to fight the demons that harrased me. I remember her praying with me when I was at an all time low. I loved her so much that, I in turn began to show and teach her things about how cruel, evil, vindictive people can be. And how to read a person to protect herself. She learned very fast, but her love for life, people and animals outweighted the skepticism. I tried to teach her to protect herself from everything that I knew would try to hurt her. But I could'nt protect her from a drunken driver. I'm sorry teairra, I failed you!

It is so nice to see a black person who actually accepts the fact that one of their loved ones made a tragic mistake instead of blaming the incident on everybody else like we so commonly see. I wish you and you're family the very best through this troubling time and beyond.
