2 Daughters Lost In Car Accident

On Friday March 2, Jessi Lindley and her 2 daughters Melissa-Grace and Starla Mae-Joy (ages 14 and 11) were driving on Interstate 20 between East Business 80 and the Loop 322 exit in Abilene Texas when they were met with a multiple vehicle crash ahead of them.

They successfully swerved to the shoulder and avoided the 2nd accident in a chain of accidents, when a full-sized Quad cab Dodge pickup truck, who made no attempt to slow down or pay attention, rear ended their vehicle.

The children were killed on impact, while Jessi was rushed to the hospital for emergency treatment.

These children and their family were loved by an entire family and community of people who are ferociously praying for the safe recovery of the Jessi and praying for all the hearts that were broken today.

But the love and pain goes so much deeper.

In this time of need, they ask for help, love, prayers and support as they battle this very tragic, very sudden, unbearable moment in their lives.

With funerals and medical expenses looming, we ask you open your heart to this family.

The daughters are survived by their father who’s heart is shattered and still breaking as he sits with his wife, awaiting her recovery.

A mother who will recovery physically, but will feel the pain for the rest of her life.

And 3 devastated brothers who loved them more than life.

The pain they are experiencing as a family, is something no family should have to suffer. No one should have to bury their daughters and sisters.

This family is like no other. They are the most amazing Christians you could meet. They would open their home to you, give you their clothes, food, warmth, and love without question and pray for you no matter who you are, what your past, or what your situation.

They preach love and kindness and always have their hearts with God.

They are a big family with even bigger hearts and so much love to share.

The 2 daughters were adopted at 2 and 4 days old by Alan and Jessi, who had no question that these girls were THEIR girls. They have raised them properly and with all the love you could imagine.

It is time we give to them the same unconditional love they have shown these girls, and multiple other children these two people have fostered and loved.

This should never happen to people like this, but it has.

Right now, in the wake of this horrible moment, the best we can do is pray and try our best to make the financial aspect of this as easy to get through as possible.

All donations will go to Alan, Jessi, Jeremy, Benjamin and Preston Lindley to assist with funeral costs, medical expenses, a new family car (the car involved in the accident is a complete loss), and lawyer fees in the future. Or whatever else they may need while they pick up the pieces and try to move on.

Thank you.




If you would like to help, donations will go directly to them if made out to "Benefit Fund for the Lindley Family" and dropped off at any First Financial Bank. Below is the online link for donations, as well.

The Beneficiary of this account will be Jeremey Lindley. Jeremey is the oldest brother of the girls who were lost, and is also the oldest son of Alan and Jessi Lindley (the parents of the deceased). He will be acting on his parents behalf to take care of the financial aspect of this tragedy, to include all rights and funds of this GFM account once they have the opportunity to set themselves up. A beneficiary request has been sent, but under the circumstances, they will need some time before they worry about anything but themselves.
