Quote form the DSM democrat I mean register..."Crabtree’s widow, Robin, is seeking an unspecified amount of money to compensate for her husband’s present and future earnings, funeral expenses and the emotional loss. News of her husband’s death, she said, hit “like a knife in the gut.”

“The only closure this will bring me is to hopefully make some difference out there on those job sites,” she said in an interview."

--Nice, unspecified amount of money, how is her getting rich going to help make a difference on the job sites, is she going to use the money she gets to help companies train/upgrade their alarm systems? Whatever happened to something being a horrible accident? Why does closure have to equal getting rich? It says she is suing for present/future earnings, so what if her husband had lost control of his car and died that night on the freeway coming home how is there any way to prove he would have earned an income after that dreadful day? And then we come to emotional loss...come on... weep and mourn then get over it, people die, nobody lives forever, how is her loss any more important than the next persons??? What makes her emotional loss worth more than someone else's and how do you put a value on that, I would like to see that payout matrix?!
