Paige Harrison Why? January 25, 2009

I sit and think 'why' Presley is gone, but never really think of how miserable it would be for her if she was back on this Earth. Even though we miss her and feel like we need her, God needs her more, just like Hillary said. God does everything for a reason, though we may not know 'why'. We all wonder 'why', but God is the only One that does know 'why' he wanted to see her so badly. So God did all of this for a reason, whether it was to wake us all up, or just to say 'I Love You', we know nothing, but God is Creator and He knows all things great and small. We wonder how God could be so heartless, but maybe it was for better. When I found out when she was gone, I thought God had made the greatest mistake, but the way the eye sees, God makes no mistakes. And I thought I'll never see her again, but I was wrong. We all will get to see her. It is best not to wonder all our lives and wonder 'why' God hasn't answered our question. We need to live life to the fullest and never take things for granted nor wish our lives away. Stop to smell the roses every once in a while, and though we have memories and love for Presley, SHE would want us all to let go and let her be at peace (though it is easier said than done I have found out). God has promised us all who call upon Him shall be saved, and we'll get to see her again. We just have to tough it out through this life. Things will be much better in the next when we all get to say 'Hello, it's great to see you, Presley.' we all have the memories to keep us together while we wait. Kind of like pictures to look at while we wait. I hope this message touched someone who read this, though it may not make much sence.


I Love You, and I promise I'll never ever forget you for as long as I live. I think about you everyday in some form or fashion, and I can't wait until all of my chores are done on this Earth so I can see you in Heaven! And we can be close. (A chance I'll never get on this Earth, and I regret it so much) Always remember that even though we weren't close personally, I am closer than ever to you spirtually.

I Love You Forever and Always.

Hillary Wheeler This Beautiful Song :] December 27, 2008

When I heard the song, I loved it. I hope you do too.


I came by today to see you, though I had to let you know.

If I knew the last time that I held you ,

was the last time id held you, id never let go.

Though its kept me late nights wondering laying in the dark just asking why? Ive always been told,

youll never be called home until its your time..

I guess heaven was needing a hero,

Somebody just like you. Brave enough to stand up for what you believe,

and follow it threw.

When I try to make it make sense in my mind,

the only conclusion i come to,

was heaven was needing a hero, like you.

I remember the last time I saw you, oh you held your head up proud,

I laughed inside when I saw how you were, standing out in the crowd.

Your such a part of who I am, now that part will just be,

void. No matter how much I need you now,

Heaven needs you more.

Paige Harrison Regrets December 9, 2008

To tell you the truth, Presley and I hardly communicated unless it was a usual glance at each other smiling every once in a while. And I regret every single day, knowing that I could've been a good friend to her and cherish each moment I had with her, and now she's gone. Just like God said, In the blink of an eye. And she wasn't there anymore smiling from across the room at a funny joke or just to be her cheery self. I wish I could've gotten to know her. And that's something I'll just have to live with in this life, but in Heaven, I hope maybe She'll give me a second chance. I can't wait to see her again. I am sorry, Presley, that I couldn't take time from my schedule, and get to know you. Of course there is always a ray of things you would want to say and do if it was your best  friend, as well. Even if we weren't close friendship-wize, but we were like siblings in the family of band members. We were and still are a family. And her death has brought us closer than ever! She will never be forgotten, and she'll never forget us or her mom and dad. As she looks down with a beautiful, angelic smile. And takes us under her wing and says "Don't worry. You'll see me again. I love you" Even though we're not, she is happier than she ever would be on this Earth. She'll be waiting on all of us next to Jesus' throne and give us lots of hugs and kisses, and say she's glad to see us again.

Katie Dennison the truth December 3, 2008

Presley and I hardly ever communicated ... which was probably my fault because i know she would have talked to me. That friday she died .. shana and me sat right across from her on the way to the game. She seemed so happy with everybody and i just can't imagine what it would be like to lose my best friend, daughter, sister. So, saying all this probably didn't help but she did one thing for all of us ... and like Hillary said. It brought everybody closer but then messed some things up to. I have seen enemies hug during all this and you sit and think oh my gosh. But anyways, the bell should be ringing any second so I will go now.


I hope everybody learns the meaning of being a true friend .. cause the ones that still cry after months of them being gone or having nightmares (so i've heard) sounds like a great friend to me and I'm lucky to have some of the same kind!

Pam Your Still In My Thoughts and Prayers November 19, 2008
Submitted by: ramiemom
Author: Unknown
There comes a time for each for us
When nothing can be done
To ease the pain and sorrow
Of losing a beloved one
It's at these times we need
More than we ever could say
The quiet touch of understanding
The loving look or gaze
So rather than try to take away
The grieving feelings inside
Just know that I am thinking of you
And time will be your guide.
Hillary Wheeler My letter to Presley. November 15, 2008

Dear Pre,

  I miss you. I just want to thank you for being my best friend. We have so many memories together, young and old. When my mom woke me up saturday Oct. 4. & told me I told her that wasnt funny and rolled over & grabed my phone and saw 26 messages that said "RIP Presley Pinkerton" my heart broke in a million pices. I thought everybody was playing a mean game on me. Ask Steven, I left the light on everytime I went to sleep so incase you came back you could find me. :( I would sit outside all day and wait. I prayed so hard, for your family, you and all of us at school. Kayla came over that Saturday and just listened and was quite when I wouldnt talk. To this day, its not okay. i still miss you so bad.. I had a dream a couple days ago, that you came back and me in you was sitting at your pool with are feet in it. You turned in looked at me and said. "Hillary, I love you." and I looked at you and grabed your hand and said, " I love you too, Presley." Im not trying to forget you by no means, I just wish this wouldnt be true. I wish I could just see you again, I know that I cant. We were SUPPOSE to go to bham a couple weekends ago.... So I went bymeslf last weekend, and It was so weird, I just layed there and Could see where you use ta lay by me and how we were acting SO stupid! lol. This has brought are school closer but then torn somethings apart. I found out who my true friends were and I got friends that I never thought I would ever have. Me in shanas getting Pretty close. Happy arent ya? lol But I didnt do to well on my report card but ima bring it up! I gotta go finish getting ready. I love you, Presley Dawn Pinkerton. May you rest in peace, and watch over you beautiful family. I miss you so bad. Tell jesus I said "hello && save me a seat".



Leighann Atkins My prayers are with you. October 29, 2008

My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Presley left such a lasting impression on so many.  My daughter Cheyenne had just become really good friends with Presley and talked about her all the time ( she still talks about her everyday).  One day last week about 6:45 a.m., I looked out my kitchen window and saw the most beautiful rainbow I had ever seen. It had not rained in several days and the sun had just begun to rise.  Cheyenne came outside with me and asked what do you think this means. I told her that was God's  way of letting us know that he is still in control. I hope you got to see the rainbow. To us it was a symbol of everlasting hope and love.  We miss her dearly and will forever keep you in our prayers.

Love in Christ,

Leighann, Cheyenne, and Dakota

Bettye Bookout Thank You! October 16, 2008


Thank you for all the smiles,laughs,and memeries! I'm so glad that I gave Shana that camera cause with out it we wouldn't have all the wounderful pictures of ya'll. I took me a long time to write this cause sometimes it is hard to put things in words when your heart is so broken. Going to the beach will not be the same who is going to play in the sand with me now?  I sure I never told you that I LOVE YOU enough when you were with us. I can still hear Shana and you on they way back from beach going HEY SHANA and Shana going HEY PRELSEY back and forth to see which one could get on my nerves first, and just laughing about! THANK YOU for everything!

Will forever LOVE and MISS YOU!!

Miss Bettye

Susan Norris Teacher and Friend October 15, 2008

     I have struggled for days with writing to you.  I am so sorry for your loss.  My heart breaks!  I can't imagine what you are experiencing.... however your strenght and faith has been amazing and has touched my life in ways you can never imagine.  Presley was a beautiful and talented young lady.  I will be forever blessed that I was chosen as her first teacher.   

     I remember Wee Wisdom.  Anna and Presley were in Ms. Birmingham's nursery class.  Today I look at Anna and think of those precious times and realize that they go by so very fast. I look back at our kindergarten class picture.... remembering the sweet smiles and the fun we had learning together.  Presley was a joy!  

     Please know that my prayers are with you all.  Tomorrow it will be a year since my Mother passed away.  I find comfort in God's promise that one day I will see her again.  There will be a day when there will be no more tears.  Until that day I will cherish memories and hold on to God. 

     Presley was a very special person and she / her life has touched so many people!  I am just one of a many....  I thank God for your little girl!

     I love you! 



Tony & Sandra Reeves Uncle Tony & Aunt Sandra October 15, 2008

Dear Derrick, Alicia and Matthew

    I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that God will touch each of you and give you strength and comfort in this time of sorrow.

I’m sure no one can come close to knowing how it feels unless they have walked the path you are on before.

I’ve never been good at putting feelings into words and almost didn’t do this, but I felt that I should.

   I have watched Presley grow thru the years from an energetic little girl chasing her older brother and cousins trying to catch up, to the beautiful young lady that she was.

   I didn’t realize how may lives Presley had touched, but that was evident from what I saw at her service.  Presley was very special in all our hearts and will never be forgotten. There will always be a void that cannot be filled. But there is comfort in knowing that she is with our Lord and Savior and still hugging those she loved that is there to greet her, as she will be when we make that journey ourselves.

With all our love and prayers,

Tony & Sandra Reeves

Patsy Wilson Friend October 15, 2008
Derrick, Alicia and Matthew...I have no idea what it is like to loose a child or sister, but I do know what it is like to love a daughter.  My heart breaks for all of you.  God and my prayers be with all of you through this terrible ordeal.
Michelle Wheeler Bash THE DASH October 13, 2008

The Dash 

by Linda Ellis
Copyright 1998

I read of a reverend who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beginning to the end.

He noted that first came the date of her birth
And spoke of the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own;
The cars, the house, the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard,
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left,
That can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
To consider what's true and real
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger,
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile?
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy's being read
With your life's actions to rehash,
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?
Carolyn Egger Mrs. October 13, 2008

Pinkerton Family:

I was so sorry to hear the sad news about Presley. She was such a special and sweet little girl when she visited with me in the library at Vernon Elementary. My prayers are with you all.

Lynn and Becky Friend October 13, 2008

Alicia, Derrick,and Matt,

Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers. I can't imagine what you have went though and are going through, I have never lost someone in my life that close, but I have seen the grace of God on you in a level that I have never seen.  Even though I didnt know Presley that well she was always so quite, she was a beautiful girl and will be missed greatly.

 You are an amasing  family and have been such a blessing in my life in more ways than you will ever know.  If you ever need anything just let us know we love you.


"And the peace of God which passeth  all understanding shall keep your HEARTS and MIND through Christ Jesus"

Brandy In the Arms of Jesus October 13, 2008

I'm In The Arms of Jesus

Daddy, please don't look so sad, Mama please don't cry~
"Cause I am in the arms of Jesus and He sings me lullabies."
Please, try not to question God, Don't think he is unkind
Don't think He sent me to you, and then He changed his mind.
You see, I am a special child, and I'm needed up above
I'm the special gift you gave Him, the product of your love.
I'll always be there with you and watch the sky at night,
Find the brightest star that's gleaming, That's my halo's brilliant light.
You'll see me in the morning frost, that mists your window pane.
That's me in the summer showers, I'll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a little breeze, from a gentle wind that blows
That's me, I'll be there, planting a kiss on your nose.
When you see a child playing, and your heart feels a little tug,
That's me, I'll be there, giving your heart a hug.
So Daddy, please don't look so sad, Mama don't you cry.
I'm in the arms of Jesus and He sings me lullabies.

Brandy Gann deepest sympathy October 13, 2008

Alicia, I just wanted to tell you how sorry I was to hear about Presley.  I'm sorry I couldn't be there.  I know how hard it is to lose someone so close!  I know you probably have questions that you will never have answers to.  You may be angry at God or even yourself.  You may ask God everyday WHY?  I know I did when I lost my dad.  All I could think of was that I should have been a better child.  I should have told my dad that I loved him, but I didn't and now it was too late.  I was going to Full Gospel at that time and I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't had them to help me along the way.  People say there is a reason for everything, no matter how unfair it seems to be.  Only God knows why.  I've heard some say that the pain will go away or that you will "get over it".  Those people obviously haven't had to experience it for themselves.  This isn't something that you "get over".  And it does't just go away.  Although it does get easier in time!  I know that you are a very strong christian woman that will turn to God and let him help you through it.  I'm adding a poem for you.  I hope you like it.  I love ya'll!!


Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.

Shana Merchant I miss you! October 12, 2008

Presley, you will never know how much you meant to me. I'll always miss you and you will always be in my heart. Even though you are gone you are still with me. I know that one day we will meet again and it'ss all be ok. I know that it is rough now, but in time it will get easier. I'll alwyas remember all of the fun times I spent with you, and your family. You were my older sister. I am so sorry that it had to end like this. I also know that I could always trust you with everything. We always said that we would take our secrets to the grave with us and now one of us has. I am at a loss of words for how hard this could be to Mrs. Alicia, Mr. Derrick, and Matthew. I love them as they were my own family. I'll never forget the times we spent with your grandmother too. All the times we just looked at her like bye!!! But it was still fun. Everone knew that you loved them. How couldn't they? You did a lot for the family, and everyone around you. Even when you were in the worst of moods you still tried cheering people up. I'll always miss your hugs! They were the best ever!!! I miss you so, so, so, so much! I LOVE YOU!!!!! I love you to death!!! I mean that too. One of the last things I said to you was that I love you. I am glad I did. I love the whole Pinkerton family and the rest of her family too! If tommorrow never comes I want you to know how much I love you! Well now you know.

Hillary Wheeler The Pinkerton Family October 10, 2008

Presley, as all of us know, was a wonderful person. She was my best friend and she always told me I was her's. She never made me feel bad about myself and everytime I was sad she aways made me feel better and told me I could move in with her if anything ever happened. haha... I love her she was the best. She would do the funniest things that I couldnt even dare to do. I miss her badly. She treated me like her sister!!To loose someone as perfect as Presley, man.. I couldnt imagine the pain that your going threw. I have took it the best way I can, but there's no easy way to let your best friend die. But, I know that Presley is happy and in a better place. Im so sorry to the pinkertons we've gotten so close since all this has happen. But, to the family, I am ALWAYS here and I will never forget yall. I love yall very much, your like another family and I enjoy when I can come over and just take a look in her room. It made my night when Mr. pinkerton told me last night that I didnt have to knoc on the door, /I could just walk in. Im very sorry and if there is anything I can do PLEASE let me know.

Presley has made such an impact on so many of us.  I really still cant believe she is gone.  I always remeber her beautiful smile.  I remeber when yawl lived next door to my grandma, and i would come over and play with Presley. I remeber the time i came over and swam with her, that was a blast.   She was an amazing woman of God, i admire her soooo much for that.  I also remember all the times she would help aunt Kitty clean.  She was always out to help anyone she could.  I dont believe there is anything bad anyone could ever say about Presley.  She was beautiful.  We all know she is in the precios hands of God now, what better place to be.  She is happier now than she has ever been.  She has no more pain or fears.  I know Presley is spending time with her gradpa who she has mised so dearly.  If yawl need nething i am just down the road.  I will keep yawl in my prayers, may God bless you all.  I am so very proud of you Presley, and could only wish i could be half of what you were.  I love you Presley, i am looking forward to the day i will see you again! i continue to keep you all in my prayers, I love yawl!!!!!!

Dawn Blejski Concerned Co-Worker October 9, 2008

I know there are absolutely no words that I can say right now that would take away your pain.  I am praying that God will give you strength to cope with the loss of your beautiful daughter, Presley.  I am praying that everyone will allow you to grieve in your own ways and in your own time.  I am praying that you find comfort from the many people who care and who trust that the LORD is with your family.   And, don't be afraid to question God at a time like this.  Don't be afraid to get mad.  He can take the heat.  Trust me.  He is strong enough to handle anything.  Let Him be your strength.  Please know that you are in my constant thoughts and prayers. 


Hannah Goode You Are In My Prayers October 9, 2008
I can't imagine what you are going through at this time but I want you to know I am very sorry. Presley was a beautiful young lady. I have heard nothing but great stories about her. Her friends and class all loved her so much. I wish I would have gotten the opportunity to know her. I know that God will be with you during this time. And Presley is watching over you in Heaven. Even though it is hard, she is in a better place now and we will one day be with her again. May God bless you on these days to come and give you strength. You are all in my prayers. Psalm 46:1.
Whitney Phipps to the pinkerton family October 9, 2008

I can't imagine the pain of losing a loved one, I havent experienced that, but i know what strong christian people you all are and I know that God had a reason for the loss of beautiful Presley Dawn Pinkerton.

I am so sorry for the loss of Presley.I didn't know her for very long and she is awesome.She was the best section leader and clarinet player ever!She was loved by many people and will be missed.Always remember that God can get u through it.Keep him first through everything.WE MISS U PRESLEY!

I am a 1992 graduate of Lamar County High School.  I have known Derrick Pinkerton and his wife for along time and I just wanted to say that I am so sorry for the loss of Presley.  I just wanted the family to know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.  I wish I could have met Presley in person.  This puts many things into perspective for me because you NEVER EVER know if you will see the ones that you love and that you cherish the most.  I know what it is like to lose someone that you hold dear to your heart (I lost my mom when I was 12 back in 1984 and then my dad in 1998) so yes I know the pain that Derrick, Alicia and Matthew and all of the family is going through right now and I pray that the peace of God will overwhelm you right now in the mighty Name of Jesus.  God is a refuge and a strong and a mighty tower that we can run into and we are safe. 

I want Derrick and the whole family to know that I love each and everyone of them very much.  I know that there will be days when you just think that you can not make it but just remember the good times that you all had together. 



I will see everyone on the 50 yard line Friday night at the Addison game.

BTW:  If someone out there has a copy of that song please make me one and I will pay you for it Friday night at the game.

I was on a site for a friend, (Joe-G Parks) when I saw your site.

I just wanted to say I am sorry for your loss, and will pray for your family. Know that you are not alone, even while grieving for your beautiful daughter and sister.

I hope that God brings you peace.


Happy memories,

Patti Pennington teacher and friend October 8, 2008

     As Presley's first grade teacher, I have fond memories of her.  I remember her as a smart, sweet, and very independent little girl.  She worked hard, played hard, and never worried about getting dirty. 

     To her parents and her brother:  I cannot imagine anything harder than losing a child and sister.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.  May God grant you peace as you try to cope with the unexpected loss of your precious Presley.  If I can be of any help, please do not hesitate to call.

To the family and friends of Presley Pinkerton:

         I just wanted to say that you all are in my thought and prayers and that Presley has really touched my heart and many others. She was soo beautiful and kind and such a wonderful person who so many people admired. I know everything is very hard right now but always know that God doesn't put us through stuff that we can't handle and i know that is hard to believe but its true and you all have been so strong and you all have inspired me so much!

                                                       With Christian Love,

presley has been my friend ever since i can remember. i have this picture of her from like the first grade sitting on my dresser. she was the coolest girl i knew. she always brightened my day. ever since this school year started me and presley became better friends. she sat behind me in first period and she started off my day great. almost every day she would walk in class and ask me if the second bell had rung already and most days it had. she was just so and i remember standing up for the pledge and seeing her right there. so going into first period everyday is hard bcuz i still think she is going to walk in after the first bell and ask if the second bell has rung yet and i will have to stand up for the pledge and she wont be standing there in front of me. she will greatly be missed. like a few years ago she saw me wearing flip flops and she just loved them she called them my ninja flip flops. she told me to take them off and then she drew pigs and chickens on my foot lol. and she and kimbo made up this totally rockin song and every time i heard it i fell out laughin. i absolutely will never forget her. and mrs alicia and mr derrick i love you so much!!! presley will always be with us. i love you presley!!!! when i get with you later on we gonna get crunk!! love you.

We didn't know Presley, but from everything I have heard and read about her on this website, she sounded like such a beautiful, amazing person.. and I know she truly was.  As a parent, I cannot imagine what you are going through.  Just know that God will carry you under his wing and bring you through this.. and Presley will be by his side in Heaven as a beautiful angel.  Know that she will always be looking down on you and always be with you.  Just want you to know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers always.  Even though we didn't know her, she has touched our lives just by hearing about her life and story.  So very sorry for your loss.  May God bless you all.
Christy Pennington Stanford The Pinkerton Family October 8, 2008

I can't even imagine what you all feel right now, but I do know that God is in control. No matter what we have to go through in our lives He is always near us. In the Bible He says that He "will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." John 14:18. My family and I pray that God wraps His arms around You and gives you peace in your heart, knowing that your daughter is in His hands. I'm sorry for your loss! The Stanford Family

Roy, Lynn, & Ryan Hawkins How It Feels October 7, 2008
I know how it feels to lose someone precious to you. I've lost my Aunt, Grandfather, and my Grandmother. They all contributed to my life. But I've never lost a Band Member and a friend before. I know that she will be looked over by God and all the Saints and Angels. Just think now that she is an Angel she's looking over you, the school, and the Band.  All our prayers and sympathy are with your whole family and ask God to give you the strength you need to get thru this trying and difficult time. I know he will be your strength and guidance always. My God Bless and watch over all of you in the days to come.

Derrick, Alicia & Matthew
We can't even imagine what you feel right now.  I know that God has given you strength and grace.  You all are such an amazing family and have been such a blessing to us personally and to our church (FGWC).  Alicia you are such an amazing woman in so many ways.  Presley was blessed to have you as her mother for the 16 yrs she was here, such a precious young girl.  One of my friends that don't know ya'll ask me who she looked like and I told them she looked so much like you & Derrick that she had such a sweet spirit like you but a strong self assurance like Derrick.  Ya'll truly brought two beautiful people into this world.  Matthew is such a wonderful young man.  Some may think he has a tough exterior and hard to talk to but he's always been so respectful to us and I can see that kind heart in him just like Presely had that you passed to them both.  We love ya'll and your whole family are in our thoughts and prayers.  God is a great big God and he will take care of you.  Just think OMG Presley is with Him right now! How awesome it must be.  There is coming a day that God has appointed for us to go but until then I think you should live life to the fullest, love with a love that last forever and laugh because that will bring healing to the pain.  Those who live their life for God will see her agian.  I wanted to tell you thank you for asking me to stay with her Monday, what an honor.  Again, if you need anything I'm here for you.  Derrick what an amazing man you are, you truly are a light of strength in this time of darkness.  Matthew we are here for you if you ever need to just talk or anything at all.  We love you!

Words can never express how sorry we all are for your loss.  Facing my first period class without Presley on Monday was one of the hardest things I've ever done.  I told the class that unfortunately I didn't know Presley as well as I would have liked.  If I knew nothing else about her, the fact that she had the best friends that anyone could ever hope to have shows what a remarkable young lady she was.  I do know that she was a smart, talented, and responsible person who was always willing to help others.  She was so fortunate to have such a wonderful, caring family who passed along these traits to her.  Your ability to trust in God has certainly been an inspiration to everyone.  May He continue to give you strength and comfort.
