The page, called R.I.P Susan McGoldrick, Alison and Tanya Turnbull From Peterlee Durham, received 1,777 ‘likes’ up to this morning.
The Mail’s own facebook site has also been inundated with messages following the tragedy.
Bobby Turnbull, the son of Alison Turnbull, wrote: “Mam, Tanya and anty Sue...When I seen you all today you all looked so so peaceful.! Take your angel wings and get yourselves up to heaven with me nana Kitty, and the rest of the family!! I will never forget you three! Sleep tight my three stars! Love yous so much XxxxxX.”

Other tributes made included one from Andrea Burrell, who wrote: “RIP Susan, Alison and Tanya, Susan I can’t beleive this devastating news, it’s so hard to take in, you were one of my favourite customers in my salon and also a very good friend. It doesn’t seem real that I’m not going to see your beautiful face, bubbly personality and smashing sense of humour again, but I will never forget you, you will all be so sadly missed, sleep tight angels x x x”

Thoughts are with the families & friends at the awful time xxxxx”
Libby Robinson added on the page: “We all whinge and moan about daily things work, money, early mornings, noisy neighbours lol, but when something like this happens it goes to show how fantastic the local people in the villages are, so many people, friends, family and people who didn’t know them personally, have took their time to write a special message to those who lost their lives. Reading these messages brings tears to your eyes, a lump in your throat, especially ones from Bobby, and other family members, we can’t imagine what you are going through.”
