Hundreds of mourners bid farewell to crash victims

HENDERSON, Tenn. (AP ) - Hundreds of mourners packed into a small funeral home today in Henderson to bid farewell to two teenage sisters who died when a dragster careened into a crowd of spectators at a parade.

Ministers and friends described the girls as different in their personalities but similar in their love for each other and for their friends.

Nineteen-year-old Nicole Griswell and 15-year-old Raven Griswell were among six young people ages 15 to 22 who died at an annual charity parade in Selmer last Saturday.

Neighbors described Nicole as outspoken and opinionated, while Raven was more reserved and introspective.
