I went to high school in a small town where everyone knew everyone within 4-5 grades of each other. Yesterday there was a car accident. A senior in high school (K) was driving with a junior (A) in the passenger seat. K lost control of the car due to the recent weather and swerved into the other lane. They were hit by a recent grad in a truck. A was only 17, beautiful, a cheerleader, pregnant, engaged, and loving life. She died instantly. K is in urgent care blaming herself for the death of her best friend. I didn’t really know these girls well but I knew about them. A had a facebook page and when I look at it I see people posting stuff on there saying how much they will always love and miss her and things they are going to do to remember her. I looked at her finace’s page and saw a new folder of pictures specifically in rememberance of her and their unborn child, they never even got to find out if it was a boy or girl. He wrote this as his status:
A I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!!! I PROMISE ILL DO THE BEST I CAN TO HOLD MY SELF UP. YOU ARE EVERYTHING TO ME. I WILL FIND YOU AGIAN SOMEDAY AND WHEN THAT DAY COMES WELL HAVE FOREVER AND ALWAY LIKE WE PROMISED EACH OTHER. I LOVE YOU BABY FOREVER AND ALWAYS!!! ILL NEVER FORGET YOU OR LOSE HOPE I MISS YOU SO SO MUCH! I LOVE YOU!
For those of you who are religious please pray for him and their families and that K will realize that it wasn’t her fault.
For those who don’t believe in prayer, please keep them in your thoughts. Their family and the town is really hurting.

Sad story, I grew up in Lebanon, MO – close to Springfield and Bolivar. Sad stuff.

@Linz1231: They were from Bolivar. It just makes me wonder how I would react if I was in her FIs shoes. I couldn’t handle loosing my FI and child. I know I wouldn’t manage. Holding my son and watching my FI play with him after hearing about this makes me want to cry. We are so happy and he will never get to know what it would be like to sit with A and watch her feed their baby or spend his life with her. I wish I had known him so I could say something.

A local pregnant woman was killed by kids road racing a few years back. At their trial, her husband talked about how he should be coming home to his wife and son in their dream home but instead his home was now a nightmare. It was empty, cold and silent.
My goodness. Those poor kids and their families. When I read things like that, I’m so glad I believe in Heaven. I will pray for them.

Oh my goodness, I will be praying too.
A similar situation happened in my hometown the year I graduated, but it was a couple who was in the car and the girlfriend died and boyfriend lived. I actually ended up working with him about a year later and talked to him about it a little. It’s so tough for the survivor, so I definitely will keep everyone in my thoughts and prayers.

That is so so sad. I don’t know how I would deal with something like that and it makes me all the more greatful for the love that I have now.

I just found out that A was planning on moving away from her home town on the 23rd. If only she had moved 10 days earlier she would still be alive and so would her baby. K had surgery earlier and is starting to joke with her parents to make them feel better but is not talking other than for that reason. Thanks to those who are keeping them in your thoughts and prayers.
