people need to get the whole story before making a comment because it does hurt inocent people you cant beleive every thing you read or hear and only half of what you see any more. The Gants have helped a lot of people and you or someone close to you may have been one of those they have helped. People need to clean out the skeletons in their own closet and sweep out from under their own rugs before pointing their finger at anyone.

I am a mother who lost a daughter in a car accident and the person who killed her showed no remorse. I don't know what Eddie Gant feels but he left this lady at the scene alone and sought medical attention for himself. That's pretty selfish and self-centered. The person who picked him up should be charged with aiding and abetting him with leaving the scene of an accident. He may have helped a lot of people but he also hurt a lot of people when his decision to drive drunk caused a woman's death. Think of her family.

i feel sorry for both family becasue the family are the ones who are getting hurt here.Eddie we all make mistake but you know better. I always think something was up with you and drugs now people will see thru you due to this hope you cant pay your way out of this .At the same time the woman you was with how could you leave someone who needed help and you left behind as you did care this woman has family people who loves her my prays are with them. As for your family you done be out on the street your wife should care less about you being with another woman sure not the only one ,but she should care at you left a woman to die by herself so you could run but you didnt get far . So to your wife and daughter i wish them the best but eddie you kill someone and dont even care

As i understood this situation. He does not remember anything. I can you say it doesnt show any remorse to her family. We dont know what exactly went on to lead up to this wreck. She was also under the influence. She was at just as fault as him. His family is hurting in this situation also. Before you start judging people you need to know the facts first. I know he is sorry for what happened and God will work us through this one day at a time. Everything happens for a reason always remember that. This was an accident i know he didnt mean for this to happen.

What people need to realize is that LIFE GOES ON! He doesnt remember what happened. She was drinking also. People you are acting like this was done on purpose it wasnt. Noone knows the true but God and it will all come out in the end. His family is upset about this also not only hers. Yes, he is married and she knew from the get go that he was married. Why was she even with him in the first place? He didnt have multiples of DUIS and he was not on DRUGS! He is a great man and would do anything for you if you needed it. All you had to do was ask him! My thoughts and prayers go out to the Gant Family. Dont let these people who right negative things and how do not know what they are talking about put your family down. God will help you work through this. Love YA

Maybe you should check your facts because he does have a few DUIs more then you will ever know he just got one 2 months ago in hiawassee you can call and check this out if you want to and it takes asick person to leave someone in the cold like he did walk in her shoes and see if you feel the same way it was heartless. And your so right life goes on for the GANTS but DEEDEEs life ended the night eddie left her in the cold i hope you never have a family member left like that then to have someone tell you to get over it cause life goes on you are just as heatless. Its not the fact that he wrecked drunk its that he left her all alone to save his own but. And the name you used use to leave there LEAVE how funny thats just what he did

OHHHH is that all we have to do is ask him if we need anything??? He is a good man is that what you are saying and he will do anything for you if you ask??? Just so I am correct...I want to ask him to tell the truth! Yes life does go on but for DeDe's family it goes on with out her! you MY DEAR are as guilty as he is if you try to protect him in all this! I'm sure he feels bad about what happen, but it is only because he embarassed his family and he can carry on his affairs not because he left a woman to die! that is what people are having a hard time with and dont give me that crap he cant remember! You are the one with your head in the sand not everyone else!

And how do you know if Mr. Gant was drunk or not? It is also possible he knew the young lady was dead and needed to get medical attention for himself before he bleed to death. You people sure kill me trying to state facts before you know them, No I don't know them either but I do know Eddie would never leave anyone there alone if they were still alive.
Eddie is probably the best citizen in White County. everyone else seems to degrade him and his family. Everyone better read the Bible it says judge not or you be judged likewise hope you have your hearts in the right place.
Guess Eddie is the only person in White County to make mistakes. He has a great family and wonderful daughter to be proud of. I would hate to know i lived in White County with all the people that loves to condemn others. Glad I live in Middle Georgia. Your family have my family's prayers and best wishes Mr. and Mrs. Gant
