Family and friends of Misty Gaylor are still in shock.
Police blame wet roads for Misty Gaylor's fatal car accident on Thursday in Cross Lanes. Her friends are helping each other get through this tough time. On Saturday, they came together to raise money for her funeral expenses by organizing a cruise in.
