No sidewalk

Tall grass on 1 side and dirt strip on the Railroad side.

Awaiting details on whether it was accidental, a drunk, train related, or deliberate?

Either way leaving scene just got a person a few years at our expense.

OMG how awful my sympathies

OMG how awful my sympathies and prayers to the families. I can't believe another human being could just drive off after hitting someone-well drop that they don't qualify as a "human being" come think of it. A human being wouldn't drive off.

They were only with us a short while...

They had attended services at our downtown church and we were blessed to share a meal and fellowship with Jerry and Tonya. They seemed to really have a sincere interest in having a relationship with God. They were precious to us and we feel great loss and a genuine sadness sympathy for their families. We will try to share whatever burdens the families are carrying. But most importantly, we will continue to pray.

I personally knew both Jerry and Tonya, we had our differences. But no matter what a person does in their life it is surely a sad thing for them to die. Some of the comments make me upset. Did yall know that she left behind a daughter? Did you know she left behind a mother? Prayers are what should be said for them and the ones left behind to mourn them. Yes I have been crying crying for the way I treated Tonya for the way she was was her. I ask that God comfort the ones who judge not for what these two did but for who they are. Lord Please let us have comfort in our time of hurting...
