Today was the sentencing for Andrei Zaharie. He did get the maximum sentence after pleading no-contest. It was over when the judge announced that Andrei Zaharie was driving 99.4MPH just one second before impact according to the engineers at Mitsubishi. Andrei Zaharie had nothing to say. A quick "I'm sorry for what I did" that sounded hard for him to say. I know he meant it but it would have been nice for him to say more. Samantha's father Dennis was very emotional when he gave his speech to the judge begging that Andrei Zaherie get the maximum sentence. All these years working for the fire department and paramedics trying to save lives and his beautiful daughter was taken by an irresponsible young man. The judge explained his ruling very well so that everyone understood why he choose to apply the maximum sentence. Marco's father put me to tears when he told the court how Marco's young brother will never be an uncle. 10 yrs seems like such a lenient sentence for killing two people so recklessly. We all love you deeply Samantha and Marco. We dream that you are in a better place.

Marco was my neighbor since 4th grade when I moved to Strongsville and became and older brother to me and was the best big brother a girl could ask for.Sam lived on the street over from us and before they ever got together Marco already had talked about her everyday and knew that someday he would be with Sam and love her. They both had the biggest hearts and smiles I have ever seen. It has been 3 years since the crash and not a day has gone by that I have not thought about them and miss them more than the day before. I love you and miss you two so much I can't even put it into words. Everyone is thinking about you especially today. RIP Marco & Sam..
Our lives may end, but our love lasts forever <3
