      I don't know how anyone copes with these kinds of things,
      So senseless. My prayers seem feeble, but may there be some good come from this tragedy and some consolation for the family.

        Thank you Rochelle. I was praying with my kids and thinking how only God could bring any good out of anything so awful. What a beautiful girl she was. Her dad just adored his daughters.

    This is so sad and very senseless. I hope that the suspect is caught and tried to the fullest extent of the law. The daughter of your friend surely didn't deserve the fate she suffered. My thoughts and prayers to him and his family.

    We should all take this as a reminder that we never know just when or how we might lose our loved ones.  While thinking of Preston, let's give our family members an extra hug and express how much we love them.

    So awful, only the love of family and friends, prayers, and God's grace will bring comfort to this kind of tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Beth, as a friend and with your friend, Preston. Unthinkable.

    What a senseless act of violence on someone so young and just starting out.  Every day I see the turmoil on the streets here and I live in small town rural no where.  It's getting worse every day.  More speeders, people blowing through red lights, people challenging each other at intersections, always in a rush to get no where fast.  Then something like this happens.  Just terrible.  My heart and prayers go out to the family in this difficult time.

    Apparently they have a suspect. For some reason it seems even sadder now.

      Certainly my heart and my prayers go out to this family.  I have several friends who have lost children and it ruins them forever.  I hope it goes better for your friends.

        That's so sad. I imagine you'd never be the same again. It's more than most of us could survive.

          I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's daughter. These senseless tragedies seem to come out of nowhere and for no good reason. I'll add her family to my prayers.

    What a tragedy this is, and prayer and time do help in the healing.
    My heartfelt prayers go up for the family.

    Pain is for awhile, but the good memories last forever. Amen.

    I grew up in Atlanta and it can be a very tough town. In the late 70's and early 80's it was the murder capital of the world.

    Your friend's story reminds me of an incident 15+ years ago.  Entering the expressway with two lanes converging, I got into it with another very aggressive driver.  I ended up in front and slowed down to "punish" her. Once she had a chance to pass me, she rolled down her window and started throwing objects at my car.

    My friend in the passenger seat said, "You know if she had a gun, she would have shot us both."  I blew it off at the time, but clearly I have never forgotten it. Atlanta has terrible traffic and some very aggressive drivers that take their personal slights and rages out on others on the road.

    Your friend's daughter looks like a beautiful girl; such a terrible waste of life.  I wonder about her killer and how she feels about her brief moment of rage and its consequences.

    I am very sorry for her family. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

      Yeah... seeing the killers face made it seem so personal. She was a life too... her life is over now too, and rightly so, but what a tragedy all around. So awful.

    So sorry to hear about the tragic event.  Trouble is more than prayer is necessary. America will continue to suffer the severe grief of loss of life to firearms. 
    America needs to grasp the nettle of the need to reign in the scurge of the proliferation of firearms society.
