    This is so sad. Brandon and Roy told me about this and how Dallas' 1 year old son was left behind. I'm praying for all of the families and friends involved in this.

    Can not imagine what the families are going through. I knew Holly from when she was a para-pro for my daughter's special needs class years ago. She was a very kind and loving person. I did not know Dallas and know his family must be in pain as well as Holly's family. God will handle this situation.

    This forum is not an obituary column or condolence book.

    The children have my sympathy.

    The 3 adults well.....lets let the courts handle it.

    The rest of you, covering for someone, go get your shovels.
    Concentrate on the 4 kids.

    Me, I got maters to plant. [wink]

    It is unbelievable how cruel people in this world could be. There are 2 families that are suffering and struggling to understand and come to terms with this tragic accident. In respect for both families if you aren't offering your condolences, please do not leave a comment. Both people involved, Dallas and Holly, were good people and do not deserve to be condemned by rumors or slander. Dallas has paid the ultimate price, his life, for this one moment in time. Holly will pay for her action for the rest of her life. Neither would have hurt anyone on purpose and both were very happy together. I hope that those people out there, Sunken Sub, will respect that and keep their disgusting opinions to theirselves. Prayers are lifting both Dallas's family and Holly's family. They both have their burdens to bare and do not need trash talk to interfere in their grieving. So remember what our parents told us "Don't say anything, if you can't say something nice"!!!!!!!![sad]

    SukenSub you should be so ashamed that you had the courage to even think of those words in your mind, much less post that!!!!!!

    Dallas Williams has lost his life. Dead he will not come back and his son will never know his father!!!!
    Holly has three children that has lost their mother!!!!!!! Her 3 yr old was at the house when all that happened.

    What if it was your brother, son, dad, friend that this happened to???? How would you feel that some idiot posted something like that????!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dallas and Holly were very happy together! I know first hand. They were both in very DARK PLACES!!!!!!! Mistakes were made and it is so unfortunate Dallas paid the ultimate price trying to help someone he cared for very deeply.
    They were trying to help each other from what i know of.
    Holly would NEVER i repeat NEVER hurt him intentionally and I find it so disrespectful for anyone to think otherwise!!!!!!
    She will pay for what she has done by being in jail, not having Dallas in her life, and not having her children.

    So I think everyone needs to think of the 10, 7, 3, and 1 yr old that have to go on the rest of their lives without their mother and father. And not post disrespectful words!!!!!!!!!!

    Rest in Peace Dallas Dale Williams III

    and please pray for everyone that this has affected and changed their lives forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As I write this I am still in total shock. That picture in the article is not the Holly I have know and loved for years. I haven't talked to her in a very long time but had recently run into her and she seemed in good spirits. Many say she was in a dark place, I just wish I had known. Maybe I would've talked to her a little more or been aware that she needed help and helped her to get it. Now it's too late a a family has lost their loved one. I didn't know Dallas but from what I have read and heard he was an amazing young man. I pray that his family can find peace in knowing that he is with Jesus. I pray that Hollys family can make it thorugh this. God bless everyone involved.

    My heart and deepest sympathies goes out to, Dallas' family (may he rest in peace) during this hard and difficult time, as well as Holly and her family. Holly isn't a bad person and the Holly I've known for years would have NEVER done such a horrible crime being in her right mind. She definitley was in a dark place. She wouldn't harm anyone or anything intentionally. There are always 2 sides to every story and unfortunately we may never no the exact truth. May God Bless and be with all involved and especially Holly's children and Dallas' child. Praying!!!!

    To Dallas' family my deepest sympathies are with yall!!!!! I pray each day for yall during this very difficult time. But at the same time I am so very sorry for Holly and her family!! She and he were both in a very dark place in their lives. This crime that was commited was not by the Holly that I kow this crime was committed by a person that is in a dark place. They both had thier demmons that they were dealing with. Again my deepest sympathies to Dallas' family!! Also praying for Holly!

    To all the family of Dallas Williams, I send my prayers and thoughts for you all. I know what a difficult time this must be for you all and of your great loss. I pray that God sends his angels to shield you with his protection and love. I personally did not know Dallas but heard he was a good man. May his spirit live on in your family knowing he is resting now and looking down upon his loved ones forever more. Peace and Love to you all.

    I believe as a journalist it is important that you do your research and write nothing but the facts. Obviously, you wrote hastily and didn't speak with anyone whom was investigating this tragic incident. It did not happen at 7:30 it was around 9:00 and the weapon was pulled by Ms. Threadgill twice before shooting the innocent man, Dallas Williams, III. He was shot in the chest and died instantly and pronounced dead by the Dr at Walton Regional. The innocent man who has lost his life, leaving behind a son of only 1 year old, was trying to take the weapon from her so that she would not harm herself but of course this was the second time. He was able and did take the gun from her and had put it away. Seems a little like intention to me, Not an ACCIDENT! But you are the journalist you should have k nown this..... Whatever the reason may be, Dallas Williams was a hero and was known by many as a strong gentle loving giant. But you didn't bother to research and get enough information before you printed trash. Get another job or come back with a better article telling everyone in Walton what truly happened. I would say hang up your pen and paper. Dallas Williams III will be missed by many and loved by all. Holly Threadgill took a amazing man away, way to early for very selfish reasons and she will definitely live out the rest of her life with an extremely heavy burden to bare. Live on Dallas and continue to spread your love as our angel. XOXO

    My Grandson's father has been ripped from his life. He will never know of the love and support only a father can give. We all will never know what life had in store for Dallas. Dallas' mother will never hold her son again or hear his vioce again. Holly's children will suffer. All of this and some much more suffering over a moment of anger. Pleas take this to heart and think twice before you act.
    My heart breaks for all the innocent people effected by this. Jacob and the family will need many prayers for the healing process to begin.

    My heart goes out to Dallas Williams family; he leaves behind a mother, grandmother, aunts, uncles, and a 1 year old son. If there was an argument, there was no need to go retrieve a gun unless you had intentions on using it -- obviously she was not thinking of her own children! Dallas, you will be missed by many....

    [sad] He was a pretty person. So sad how Holly took his life so easy.
    Bless his Aunt and son. Jacob will miss his Daddy as he grows up. Shame yes a shame. Rest sweet boy. God had his arms opened ready to greet you at home.
