    She sat at my lunch table sometimes, I can’t believe this happened. It just feels so unreal

    She was my best friend ever since I transferred to Tate. She always helped me out and we would talk alot. From the conversations to jokes. We were so close, It’s so surreal that not even a couple days ago I was talking to her, and now shes gone… I can’t believe this is real, but it is. I wish I could just hug her one more time..Rest In Peace, you’re in a better place.

    Little Buck was my best friend and could put anybody in a good mood. Her laugh lit up any room on any occasion. She was an amazing person and will be missed dearly amongst her many loving friends and family. ❤️

    Praying for the family of this girl. ATV’s are so much fun and the kids love them. We worry yes, but we have to live life too, we just never know.

    So sad! This type of thing, & injuries, has happened too much in this area. All terrain does not include the road, as these vehicles are not street legal. As paul said, gear. Helmet, boots, gloves, eye protection, back, shoulder & knee pads, along with a chest protector might have made a difference here. :(
