We had a cranking rock and roll cracking orgy with the life insurance benefit.

It was one hell of a wake.

althoug I do not personally know the family, this family lost their DAUGHTER, SISTER, NIECE, how could you even say something like that, this is a family that realizes the danger of herorin and is actually trying to raise awareness, it more than anybody else in this town is doing, get over yourself and your judging, it isn't only about cierra, it is about a cause, maybe if people like you would shut your mouth and help the youth in our town could learn a valuable lesson, without forgetting the great cost that was paid at this family's expense, you sicken me.

Maybe, just maybe the family should have rallied and raised awareness while their daughter was still living and she may still be alive. They knew she was involved in drugs so the "help" rasing awareness should've started in their own home, at the time of drug use not after the child is dead to make a dollar.

People should be thanking you for the awareness that you are trying to get out there. Some people that have children with a drug problem really don't know where to turn. Even if they have a place to turn, the person has to WANT the help. It has to be hard to loose a child, no matter what the situation is. Some parents don't know the signs of drug use and a little education won't hurt anyone. Not to mention that when you are dealing with someone that has a drug problem, they will lie and do what ever they can to get the next fix. So yea it just may help someone to know what options are out there to get a loved one some help.

First the only thing we knew that she had done before she died was drank a few times and tried marijuana, nothing more. Second if you would get your facts first you would know that no money is raised by the walks, water is donated and volunteers come and talk, your ignorance is showing go back and hit your crack pipe idiot.

Drank a few times (underage) and marijuana? Hello! Was that your clue that something was not right with your child? most kids 17 and under are doing school work. That should've been your sign right there! If you curb the appetite of the things that obviously you consider no big deal, then they won't have the chance to move on to the things you obviously consider a big deal, such as herion. Kids should not be drinking and smoking marijuana! It is a big deal.

Actualy if you read a bit(i'm not sure if porn counts jim) most teenagers do try marijuana and alcohol before they are 18. So thats not all that unuasual. What is unusual is your outlook on life. Someone dies and a family i ripped apart and you come on here to point fingers? lol I don't know what your day to day life is like but if this is what you do with it I know it's got to be a sad existence. I'm guesing single, in moms basements, behind on taxes, with a touch of ED (can't afford viagra?)
If you want to prove me wrong all you have to do is leave your last name. Eh nvm i'll find it myself. New program helps to track peoples IP addresses off topix. See ya on facebook soon jim, better set that profile to private asap.

Karen, and others who knew and loved Cierra:

The people who write these horrible things on here are miserable and small-minded. I, myself, have had to defend my own family against absolute lies that are spread on this website. I know the dread and anger you feel at reading new posts that people decide to create for their own entertainment.

Their awful words represent the minority, not the majority. Know that you are doing something to honor your daughters memory, and be proud of your work to bring awareness to this cause.

To those of you spewing hateful, bitter words:
Leave them be, this walk has absolutely no affect on you. Just don't participate if you don't like it or don't agree with it.

I am absolutely stunned at how something that is supposed to be a positive act has turned into a personal attack on a family.

This family are your neighbors and this could easily happen to any parent of any child- and dont' fool yourself into thinking "never my child."

"There but for the grace of God, go I" (google the meaning if you can't figure it out)

What money? The family has to pay out of pocket for anything that isn't donated. You are an idiot.
Perhaps they can canvvas her dealers for the cash....

We have never received a penny from the walks, the walks are done to make people aware of drug problems, what to look for and what treamtment options there are. We would never profit from the loss of my daughter, wow people are really uncaring and purposely cruel. I hope you never loose a child to drugs, people will be cruel to you too remember that.
1. You think people are not aware there are drug problems in this community?
2. If I ever lose my child to drugs, I WON'T be having a PUBLIC walk to honor what was a very stupid thing. The sense of shame would be too great. Having a public walk to 'bring awareness' to a world already in too much pain would be what is CRUEL.

I have sat back and read all the things that have been said about Cierra and her family. It is pitiful how people can be so cruel. I do not know this family personally as in sitting down and having a conversation with them however, I have had the pleasure of meeting Cierra and it tears me up knowing that there are people worried about who got what and what they did or said on a walk. Evidently, people don't have anything to do but sit around and talk about other families. Worry about your own and what your kids/ niece/nephew/ grandkids are doing. It might of been one of your own in that terrible situation and no you can not state for a fact that your own family will not be put in the situation that Karen and her two remaining kids have been through. I hope and pray that I will never have to go through what they have been through. R.I.P Cierra and Tony
