    This is tragic for both Cassandra's family and the driver. She has gone on to a better place and her family and that driver is left is left here to mourn.Let's not ponder on why she was there the bottom line is that she is gone and her family needs prayer now instead of gossip. In closing I pray that the family finds comfort and peace. May God bless them. Done on behalf of her nephew and my cousin Devron Lester....

    This is also my cousin (PEEKABOO'S SISTER) and we know that God just wanted one of his angels home with him on Dec. 5, 2008! We will continue to look unto the hills from whence cometh our help. For we know that weeping may endure for a night but joy will come in the morning. Uncle Harvey(Ethel), kids, Siblings, and Momma know that we love you ALL. Yeah, we grew apart but not out of one another's hearts. Let us keep the memories of her smile and laughter alive! We know that she believed in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost....For the ones who are still on this earth: LET US GET RIGHT BEFORE OUR TIME BECAUSE WE DON'T KNOW THE DAY OR THE HOUR! Be mindful because GOD is truly going to do his will not OURS! To the HARVEY FAMILY..LOOK UP!
