Lol. Kelly is dead
You know i didn't know kelly, but i knew always saw her in Jimmy Johns... You really must have the nerve to laugh about this. What if it were you're best friend, or a sibling of your own. You would not want others laughing to the loss of someone you love. I've heard nothing but great things about Kelly.
Have a heart, my gosh!!

I can't even imagine why someone would even think LOL! What would even posses a person to be so cruel? SHAME ON YOU! This is in no way a laughing matter! And stop trying to blame the parents!! Things happen. We all know that this is horrible, but was an accident. 5439

wow. first of all.
i am allison hess and i NEVER said that!
i have been framed and its rediculous.
whoever started this should be ashamed
of themselves and how they handled this situation.
i knew kelly and she is an awesome girl
she was always there for anyone and everyone.
i miss her along with everyone else
but i know she is up there playing jokes on us
constantly and impacting our lives.
needless to say. i am very disappointed with you,
whoever you are.

Let me start by saying that Kelly was a better person then anyone of you could possibly ever want too or actually become. For the wothless coward who wrote the "LOL",well let me tell you I'LL MEET YOU ANY PLACE OR AT TIME AND WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW LITTLE I THINK YOU ARE, AND YOU MIGHT WANT TO BRING A FEW FRIENDS OR PARENTS AND POSSIBLY DIAL 911 BEFORE YOU COME SO YOU MIGHT HAVE A CHANCE. GOD WILL JUDGE YOU AND I'M SURE THAT WILL BE THE LAST PERSONS NAME YOU'LL EVER SPEAK.

Let me first start off by saying that i've known who Kelly was since she was little. My mother worked with her Grandmother, Delores quite awhile ago. Kelly was a beautiful, outgoing girl, and whoever came up with this is ridiculous. Who would write LOL next to something like this? I don't know allison or anything, but I hope she didn't really write this, because if she did..she will go to hell for it if she did.. May she rest in peace, and be watched over by god. And may the Mercaldo family find strength and closure.

All i would like to say is that this was an accident. I was in the car. I know every detail of the night. How could anyone say hurtful things like that and make this out to be a joke? That night haunts me every day and i really don't appreciate people thinking they know what went on or anything like that. Know the truth before you let things come out of your mouth. Then you don't look like such a jackass.
