    here's the article:

    Accomplished dancer, student

    Katie Mills had just finished her last final for the semester. She wasn't supposed to leave for Miami from Florida State University until the next day, but a friend from home offered her a ride.

    Her mother didn't want her driving alone.

    Friday evening, just after the Fort Pierce exit on Florida's Turnpike, the car Mills was driving veered off the road and rolled over. Mills was ejected and died instantly.

    She was 19.

    Mills grew up in South-Miami Dade.

    She was an accomplished dancer who excelled in many forms of dance -- tap, jazz, lyrical and ballet.

    She left her private elementary school, Cutler Ridge Christian Academy, in fifth grade when she was accepted into the dance magnet program at R.R. Moton
    Elementary school in South Miami-Dade.

    ''I loved to watch her dance,'' said her mother, Rebecca Mills.

    ``Whether it was tap or ballet, she was a natural.''

    Mills continued her middle and high school years in dance magnet programs at Southwood Middle School and Coral Reef High School and was a member of the Jill Mallory Studio of Dance in Pinecrest from the time she was 3 until her senior performance in 2002.

    ''Katie was willing to try anything,'' said Kim Brokaw, owner of the dance studio and Mills' instructor for 10 years. ``[She wasn't afraid] to do a leap and land down on her stomach.''

    Mills was also a dedicated student, who earned a high enough GPA in high school to qualify for a Florida Bright Futures Scholarship, which paid for 75 percent of her college tuition.

    She was listed in the prestigious Who's Who book series, in the Who's Who Among American High School students for the 2001-2002 academic year.

    Her first semester at FSU, Mills made the dean's list.

    Mills was thinking about pursuing a degree in recreation and leisure services administration. She was also a member of FSU's Flying High Circus, helping to ring the tents and set up the trapeze.

    ''She was just a well-rounded girl, very talented and beautiful all around,'' recalled David Spear, a friend from high school.

    ''A lot of people loved her,'' he said.

    Mills' mother, Rebecca Mills, said her daughter's death might have been prevented if she had only been wearing a seat belt.

    The passenger in the car told her that Mills had taken off her seat belt for a moment to find something -- a CD or cellphone -- and lost control of the car.
    ''We just want people to always wear your seat belt, never take it off for a second,'' Rebecca Mills said.

    ``And pay attention when your driving. It's really important.''

    In addition to her mother, Mills is survived by her father James Mills and sister Kristy.

    My prayers for the family


    Couple of years back I had an online friend from Holland. One day her brother emailed to say her car crashed in an accident and she died after being in coma for four days. Reality bytes.

    Yikes... this is a sad thread... (((((HUGS)))) to those who have lost a loved one... I'm new here and don't know the person spoken of in the original post...

    A friend of mine lost his father two nights ago to an unexpected heart illness (like the one John Ritter had).

    Just here for a quickie....

    Thanks to everybody who posted, and sent messages. Thanks to Lauren for the thoughtfulness behind starting the thread. My best wishes and condolences go out to all the others who posted about their own recent losses. I have a bunch of family stuff over the next couple days, but after that I will be back posting as usual, and arguing with everybody.

    I'm going to ask the staff to close this thread now. Thank you again for the kind words, and thoughts.
