As a mother of a 16yr old girl in Dickson, I am grieving for these poor girls...one of whom I have never met, and one that used to spend the night with my daughter when they were in elementary school. There have been so many young deaths in this county in the past several years that I am too scared to buy my baby a car..when/IF she gets one before college it will be just an old beater that she won't want to drive unless she HAS to. Please, Dickson county...let's bring back Driver's Ed. Not that I am blaming any of the poor victims for this tragedy...but I know that I would feel safer if all 16 year olds had to take a class and practice for a whole semester before getting behind the wheel. God be with these families.

Dickson County is becoming more like the Big City each day. If the unhappy, the angry, the depressed, and the drunks and addicts would reach out to for help, they could see there is a better way. There is help for us out there. I know, I am one, and was all of the above. And I know there is no reason to take anothers life. God will protect you. Our county is having a serious problem. Reach for help, Go to God in prayer, ask the pastor or doctor for help. With all the unhappiness, selfishness, anger, depression, and addiction is killing our people, ruining our land, and without a higher power, it will only lead you to jails, institutions, or death. There is a better way. Anonymous programs or Church. STOP THE VIOLENCE! Break the circle of our past! You can start your life over at ANY moment. God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference. Change yourself, accept others, Be still and know that he is God!

Rest in Peace Jamie and Shelby. You are still greatly missed.
I pray that Rebecca and all drunk drivers have learned a lesson from this.

Jamie was like my sister shelby was my lil cousin. A DRUNK driver killed them n took them both out of my life. Still to this day I can't believe it. July 4th I was on my way home n my phone blew up so I stopped at a gas station, everyone thought it was me that had wrecked n I said someone get ahold of shelby her car was almost same color of mine. So I went to my friends house that was right down the road from the wreck, I called jamies mom n told her not to panic but where were the girls at cause they were always together she said on the way to piney. Well neither one of them answered their cells.. I soon found out from my friends mom who was a cop that it was the girls. I broke the news to momma lori n met up with everyone at the hospital. Worst night of my life.. n she gets out in 3 years? How can she live with herself?

People are still grieving. Yet, doesn't seem to be getting any better on the roads. The Piney, ha, that's a joke. There is more underage drinking and pot smoking out there than you can shake a stick with. I don't go out there no more. It's getting bad. The thing about it, you think it's someone else's kid out there. I've seen kids of police officer, lawyers and preacher's kids out there drinking and cutting up. R.I.P. girls.
