Rest in peace sweet destiny.We all love you.I've known this child from a baby.I partly agree with jason's mother that 17 year old is not telling all she knows,she is most likely covering up her self,its strange how 2 are dead,but she's still alive and in no way harmed.so many days she did'nt know anything,while destiny's body layed in the woods.destiny's family,friends,and long time church members like me,want to know just what happen,and why someone wanted destiny to die.destiny was a very sweet child who loved god,and was never ashamed of him. To jason sparks family,I'm praying for you all,I'm sorry you lost your son. God be with both families. Looks like 17 year old friend would tell all she knows so that familys hearts can be set at peace,they deserve to know the truth. Love you guys wade,charolett,children. Your friend and church member vickie.

according to the video on the web site.the children deceased called to tell mothers they love them.I think because of crime spree,they were leaving state.Looks like destiny changed her mind.And she was shot and left behind.destiny did love her family,and her family loved her.she deceided to face up to her parents about what happened,and the others did'nt want her to talk,so she was shot and left,by who?one 17 year old child and god only knows.

In the arms of Jesus forever
I haven't been there yet - but I'm leaving someday,
to join my loved one – Destiny’s not far away.
Can you feel her presence? Her warmth? Her love?
She’s with us right now - looking down from above,
Watching and waiting - as we grieve and cry,
reaching out in comfort - with a gentle sigh.
Please don't weep for her – she’s with the Lord,
Protected from Satan - with just one word:
Mine!
In loving memory of Destiny Aldridge from friends at revelation of holiness church.

I agree that there is more than what is being said...The story just don't add up but the only ones who really know is Jesus and that teen that was with them...I believe because of Destiny getting saved before this all happened at Beaverton church of God that she had decided to tell what she knew about the burglary...Then I believe that the other two didn't want her to tell...I really don't know what happened but I do know that this girl was loved by her Parents...I believe that they had decided to leave the state because of the burglary...I believe after the phone call to Destiny's mother made by Destiny that she changed her mind about leaving and an argument started and Destiny turned to leave and was shot by one of them...I know Destiny wouldn't have left for long because she was from a close family and raised in a Christian home...I believe Destiny was going to tell something and that someone who did this tried to shut her up by killing her...RIP Destiny we will always love you and we will some day know the story...I will see you again someday and you will never be forgotten!

rest in peace sweet sweet Destiny you know you have always been loved and you always will be loved.yea i don't agree with jason's death and i don't agree on yours either because jamie is not telling the hole truth about what she knows about jason's death but we all know that u and jason are in a better place and that yall both will rest in peace and that both of yall are right in a good place.And everyone is praying for jason's friends and family and your friends and family but yes we all want to know why jamie wanted destiny to die and why she did this to us and her she is covering up herself so she does not get in any trouble at all with the police department but we all just wish that jamie did not do that to sweet destiny and that we love u and miss u Destiny and that we always will.RIP Destiny we will always love you and we will some day know the hole story and someday in the past you will see me and your friends and family rest in peace love you very much WE MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!

That Destiny Is with Jesus I have no doubt and she is at peace. Jason has found peace also from the rough road he traveled and God has them both now. Jamie, the 17 year old some want to hold accountable for this horrible ending for these two teens is also a child and someones child just like Destiny and Jason. She is lucky to be alive. Why was her best friend killed? Why was she forced to endure the fear she had to? Why will she always have the image of seeing Jason take his own life after so much terror. She will never be the same young girl again. Why, Why, Why?? We as children of God can remember that these things are known only by Jesus Christ himself....God keep the children and bless the living that mourn them.

God bless the children and thier families. The sad truth is that Jason backed his life into a corner and decided he had no way out. Already being convicted of crimes, facing seven more charges and then killing his girl friend led to his suicide. We can only hope that other kids will learn from this and change the direction of thier lives before it is to late.

How do you know Jason did not take his own life? You weren't there. Is it because it is too much for you to comprehend? Do you have a witness?

I am not saying you are wrong -- but WHY are you so certain?

Jason did take his own life, that is clear just as it is that he shot and killed his girlfriend Destiny, It is hard for any parent to accept, but the truth doesn't lie nor do the facts. It is terrible yes but denial doesn't change it. The only thing that happens when one can't face the truth is the loved ones in denial have no closure. God loves Jason and he is in Gods hands now.

It is awful to see so many lives torn apart and so many hearts and spirits broken. To the families of these three children my prayers are with you. The coronor has made it clear that Jason shot himself. That will be the hardest thing to accept. Why he killed Destiny only God knows now. Sweet Destiny is cradled in the arms of Gods Love where we all hope to be one day. The young girl that had to endure this terror from the minute Jason shot Destiny up to the fatal second when he ended his life will have much to recover from. If she ever can, I can't even imagine the shock and fear going through her during that time. She must have been as close to a hostage as anyone could be under those awful circumstances. Three young lives and three familys were forever changed. These are the times we must look to God for courage/peace and comfort. These are the times that our faith in God is put to the test.

It is sad when one can't face the truth about what thier child has done and what they did to that child to push him over the edge. Why don't you stop trying to blame a young girl that he terrified for days and start blaming yourselves. There is a reason that Jason had such a long criminal history at just 18 years of age it must have come from his up bringing. It is clear you need someone to blame, so look in the mirror or leave it to God! It is such a shame that the adults involved in Jason's life wish that 3 kids were dead instead of 2, and even worse that they can't accept the truth. You might want to get a copy of the coronors report before you continue to lie to yourselves about how Jason died... And anyone that Really knows these kids, KNOWS what Jason did that made him pull that trigger again!!

I am so sorry for the loss of these kids, I know that doesn't help I probably shouldn't even be doing this, I don't know at all what it is like to be on your side of things, I know it's not easy on this side either, not knowing what happened really, but I as any parent I KNOW my child and will say the same as everyone else, Jamie would not hurt anyone, has never been violent, has been in trouble it's not a secret in Fayette, as well as the other kids, but not violence. She and Destiny have known each other since they were about 8yrs old, she's stayed with them and Destiny with me,I love that girl, she allways called me mom and Jamie called her mom, mom. It's been 5 months and I am shaking as I type now, the very thought of it all.. It's like a nightmare that is never gonna go away, and while you are all judging and thinking things u don't know for sure, nor do I, only God and jamie do, and Jamie has to live with what she saw and anything she may have done for the rest of her life, I'm sure a few of u would be happy of her nightmares, I know if the tables were turned i'd think the same exact way. I never meet Jason, I knew dee for very long time, not a day goes by she isn't on my mind. Jamie, I Love her and believe in her no matter what anyone says, and plenty of others will tell u the same of her, she wouldn't hurt anyone, big mouth, but never been in a fight. That's all. God Bless everyone, Michelle
