    These two boys(men) should have to sit and watch the videos of Phyllis and her family, her loving husband, her sister and Mom and other friends that was presented at her funeral, they took from this earth an awesome human being. I have been a family friend for many years and watched Phylls grow up from the apple of her Mom's eye to a loving wife and beautiful human being. I just hope Ky laws will protect others from being hurt in the same way by these to "gentlemen". forever a friend, your a missed.

    Phyllis was my boss when I was a student at MSU 3 year's ago. She made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I was pregnant with my first child and she was so good to me. She had a heart of gold. Nobody will know what she meant to me. I'm absolutely devastated to hear that she is gone. I never got to say goodbye. I didn't even know that she had passed away until after her funeral. I love you Phyllis. I am so sorry to the family. Unfortunatley in our society drunk driving gets a slap on the wrist even when an intoxicated person takes the life of another WONDERFUL person. God help their souls on judgement day.

    I agree both should be held responcible, But so should the bar they left in Mt, Sterling. Mr. Smallwood should had never gotten behind the wheel of that truck, knowing that he was too drunk to drive.

    Joshua may have been "a good kid" but it does not change the fact that he was a participant in the death of an innocent person. Both men in the truck should be held responsible.

    I have known Phyllis and her family for many years. I want everyone to know what a wonderful person she was. Obviously, she touched many lives within her workplace that many of us didn't know about. There is now a void in the lives to all that knew her. My prayers are with the family as they try and deal with this horrible tragedy.

    I agree totally with Mr. Wagner. I heard the accident come over my scanner. And I agree, they did do all they could do to help Mrs, Kyle. I could hear it in his voice, the terror in his voice is something no one would ever want to go threw. They tied as hard as they could, I would never say they did not try. I commend all firefighters for the job they do. And god bless Mrs, Kyles family.

    If this was not life threatening why is Mr Knise in UK hospital going threw surgeries. The news needs to get there stories straight before they print it. Joshua is a good kid just running with the wrong crowd.
