    To the Howie Family, please know that your loss of your beautiful daughter and granddaughter is such a tragedy. I do not know any of you but when we drove by and saw the accident it crushed our hearts. I teared up so much and I can not get this horrible accident out of my mind:(. I am a mother of 3 and as a mother we can relate to how much we love our kids no matter how old or how young they are:(. But God left you all with a very special angel. I will continue to pray for you and your family. I really don’t know what to say other than we are here for all of you. We all must pray to make things better. Just know that there are so many people out here that care about you and your family during this difficult time. God bless you. * Tears are flowing again*.
