I'm sorry to hear about Leah's passing. My son attended school with her until we moved. God needed her help up in heaven, and she will be missing dearly.

whats a cloest friend?????

Sorry to hear about the drowning. Sure seems to be a lot of them this year. But I am not sure if it isn't the media hyping them a lot more than in the past. Especially in the rip tide currents. Probably mentioning all the rescues when in the past they didn't. Drownings you can't hide. But it seems like a lot drowning in swimming pools as well.

A sad situation for many this year.

Yes, the situation is very sad. Sad enough for you not the bring up a simple typo in your comment. Your comment was very insincere.
Our hearts and prayers go out to Leah's family and "closest" friends.

Faulkners Mom.

You are blowing some hot air there young lady. You don't have a clue whether I was sincere or insincere.

Maybe the Joke was in poor taste. But the first thing I noticed before I read this post was Leahs Friend,a friend, leah's cloest friend. From a board that don't seem to be overly well populated or responsive to posting. It's by far not the best forum I have seen. It amazed me that a post out of the blue was listing a person they actually new. My guess it was the same poster. That caught my eyes more than the post itself to start.

But either way it don't take away from the fact that a young girl drowned. For her and her family that is sad and I will be praying for them for comfort in there loss.

Leah was one of my friends from Stanford middle school in Hillsborough n.c. But even before we went to Stanford i seen her on bet 106 & parks wild out Wednesday dancing maybe about 2 years ago but im not sure and i was thinking dang that girl has talent. Leah was liked by everyone she was nice,sweet,kind, out going,pretty,smart,and she was talented like i said before. She was only 12 thats whats really upseting she had the rest of her life ahead of her. These past 6 days has been really hard for me and all the rest of Leahs friends and family. Some times i just think the death of Leah is all just a bad dream and shes still alive but its not and i dont think that i can realize that just yet because even though Leah & me were not best friends we were still friends and if this was to happen again to one of mi freinds i dont know what i would do sometimes i dont think i can go back to school because all the fun memories i have of her. LEAH YHU WILL BE MISSED BY EVERYONE & I LUV YA GURL R.I.P IMA C YHU IN HEAVEN

I thought and agreed my humour might have been in poor taste. But I suspect that Cloest friends is even worse.

I know that I may not be the greatest speller in the world. I also know know that I am not the worse either, Cloest friend proves that point.

But for Cloest friend to come out and make humour of this imo is even worse, I didn't come out and say I was a friend. If it's not humour its someone with a very bad case of being able to spell.

If I am wrong here I am sincerely sorry.

But my belief is that each and everyone here is the same person

Being a Charleston forum and one where there isn't a lot of different people interacting. All of a sudden posters galore come onto this board from North Carolina and post claiming that they are related or her closest friend.

I figure the odds of those in North Carolina coming on this board when it would be more pertinent to a board in the North Carolina area is rare enough, let alone friends and family members galore.

If by some small chance I am wrong here I am sorry.

But if in the more likely case I am not, You are the one that is being sad over the death of Leah's drowning.

That is no doubt to the real family and friends of Leah this is a true tragedy. My prayers and concerns have and continue to go out to them. I pray for there peace and comfort.

Even to the one who hates me, I will be praying for you as well.

Mr Doug in the fucking creek I dont know who the hell you are but you need to stay off this PAGE!!! You did not know Leah, but we did and if you continue to write nasty comments I will be reporting you to this newspaper so you can be blocked!!. So you go straight to hell by the way how dare you talk trash about her fam and friends comments!. Get a life and leave this page out of you thoughts and pray for yourself because you are the one that needs it the most. God is already in our hearts and he is healing each and everyone of us while we are dealing with our lost.

I will give someone there wish and get off of this post. It's only one person using a bunch of different names anyway. No use continuing on with this masquerade.

Again condolences to the real family and those real friends who knew her.
Bye.
