Dalton DeRooy was a awesome kid. I was able to have him in my life for about 8 years now since I was dating his dad for several years. Dalton will be extremly missed. Please pray for the family to make it through this difficult time. Malia...I love you and will be there this weekend and your dad is on his way!

This is a terrible tragedy. I have known these children since they were born and their mothers since they were born. Their grandmother is one of my dearest friends. My heart breaks for them all. There is no understanding why these terrible losses happen to us, especially to ones so young. God help them through the days ahead.

I never did get the chance to know Dalton and Chantel, but I have heard from many friends that they were great kids. I miss them already even though I did not know them. Please pray for their family for they are suffering a tragic loss.

It has been over a yr and still seems like yesterday. Dalton I miss your jokes and face around to keep me up.
Chantel, my loving daughter, I miss everything aout you. I still cry every night and sleep in your bed this house is just all you. My little grandson still looks at your pictures and can say Chantel now and I will NEVER let Tavish forget you, the close relationship you two had and bonding the three of us had was unforgetable. I miss our every night calls and Hugs, Kiss, Hi-5

My heart is in shamble I miss you so much.

I miss Chantel so much and find my self thinking about her a lot lately. She taught me a lot about life, and basketball lol. I never got to make my peace and hopefully this will help. She was became a very close friend to me. She always talked about her mom. I remember when we put her in a box and added stuff on top so when her mom got done looking at the little presents on top she would pop out and surprise her. I miss her loving personality.

Chantel I miss you like CRAZY!

R.I.P. Chantel there is still not a day that goes by when I do not think of you. After two years and still I spend alot of time at the site and getting ready to put up nice new crosses I had made for you and Dalton.
A few monthes ago we almost wrecked in the same place and came inches from it, I went and sat down were the car was the other night and just sat there. I still am so lost without you and cry most nights. I will never stop Missing You Babygirl...
