I find it funny the number of people so hung up on the manner in which others post to this ridiculus forum site. One would think that these "mensa" members would have better things to do with their time. It is also interesting the people that express condemnation towards those posting condolence messages in light of a tragedy. Some of you people are truly pathetic jerks. May you one day experience a similar or worse tragedy. You're deserving.

Why didn't they have an alarm on the pool? Anyone with a child should have one of these.

Should, Coulder and Woulder, you learn from the mistakes in your life, this was a accident, but maybe other families will learn from this tragic thing this family has too,

You don't know the circumstances or prevenative measures that have been taken in reference to the pool safety or access. You don't even know that she was left unattended...and for the record it takes less than 120seconds for any child to pass the way she did! 1st aid & CPR is most likely performed on anyone in who has stopped breathing. Just bc resuscitation is possible, you need to understand that it doesn't always bring that person back! Show me one parent who has never been out of eye shot from their child for 2mins and I will show you a dang liar!!! The 1st maternal instinct is to protect your child & Melody was a wonderful mother who would NEVER intentionally let anything happen to her daughter! I myself am a mother & my daughter isn't much older. I have put her down for a nap & ran to switch laundry, or wash a few dishes. When my daughter was an infant, I took a shower while she napped in the bathroom w/me in her bouncy seat. She could have been a SID's baby and COULD have passed while I was rinsing my hair. Thank goodness she wasn't bc she is and always will be my whole world. But the point is theres not a damn thing I would-have,should-have,or could-have done bc her fate was in the Lords hands!!! And so is the journey thru the rest of her lifes purpose.
So how about you drop the judgements and take that into consideration before you try to tell them what "should have" been done! Understand that we can always look back & find details we would like to change about our past. You obsess over the many fantasies that could have played out. That's just our natural way of learning for future reference. But no-matter how badly you would love to get to change something like this, its just NOT possible. Nor will it help with the very real pain we are experiencing as a result of losing one of Gods most precious gifts!!! Idk why some ppl are so cruel & heartless to try to kick someone when they are already at their lowest! But I would hope that you aren't proud of yourselves. Including the deleted comments on this post, the other two posts that were deleted entirely, and the News commentary that also had to be deleted bc of the negative/hateful/derogatory and just plain ignorant comments that were being posted. Deleted bc they enraged & sickened so many others, I might add. Our family is strong but our faith is stronger and you should know that even when we are hurting the most we have ever....we will still pull thru this together and your cruel&heartless actions/words are only strengthening us!!! As a result of so much misunderstanding....we only turn to the one who has all the answers.
If you wouldn't mind....
Please let our Angel rest in peace and pray for us as the pain doesn't end here. We will forever miss her. Pray for the mother who has lost her child bc there will be days when pain and sadness doesn't even begin to describe the way she feels. And most importantly hug your kids a lil tighter and Thank God for your blessings!
All of them

Nice post, fake intent. You've posted continuously since day one. Consider that YOU may very well be part of the problem. Leave this family alone and this thread may very well fall to the bottom. It galls me that you actually have the stones to criticize another when you are no different and damn sure no better. Let it go Pat.

I feel so bad for this entire family. This was such a horrible accident. I just wish people could keep their opinions to their selves. It is sick to think people are saying she did this and she killed her baby. She loves her very dearly and anyone who knew her knew this. Rest in Peace Ava Mae. Fly high baby girl.

I really can't figuire out why everyone's getting mad here. It's human nature to ask what happened, to try to understand then blame comes, The truth is none of us like death but we also know people do bad things sometimes. Nor do we want to think we can just die any moment of any day......just don't get to personal and everyone should be ok to grieve in there own way, wether be the little lady next door who looks forward to your smile everyday at mail time, or your family, a old teacher......everyone does it different but when someone dies in a small community we are all effected one way or another.

How quickly we forget about the child's father and his family. What a shame that the price family has hardly been mentioned. I like to keep them in my thoughts and prayers as well as the the Hawkins family. It's a horrible tragedy for all of them.
Hey trouble-

Nobody should have thrown the Price family into this mess! None of us deserve to be here. Most of the comments have been negative and attacking the mothers character/ability. I LOVE ARON TO PIECES. I'm glad he hasn't been bashed on here. My heart goes out to the WHOLE family including everyone who lost Ava!!! I like to think that she loved everyone and considered us ALL HER FAMILY. She blessed all of our lives in a special way! Everyone hurts differently but now is NOT the time for division or low blows. WE ALL LOST HER. I hurt for her father as deeply as I do for her mother. THEY BOTH LOST THEIR CHILD!!!!!!! And we are all missing a 3ft Angel who tugged at our heart strings so many times!!!
....thru the mistakes,the understanding
the joy,the pain
the excitement,the dred
the sun,the rain,
the failures,the successes
the takes,the gives
but mostly thru our love.....
.......Ava lives!!!

I wonder who raised you with such low class that you feel its necessary to make up lies and create drama out of someones heartbreak!?!? She isn't even old enough to really party you idiot! Besides who the hell are you to say what she should be doing after she lost her daughter??? I wouldn't care if she went to Mardi Gras...it would be and is absolutely irrelevant to the situation!
