I hope in the future that your articles are not so graphic as this one was.
I am the aunt of the beautiful girl killed in this crash. There are details in this story that are not necessary to publish.
Did I or anyone else need to know that her screams were heard? I hope and pray that Her parents never know that their daughter suffered to this extent in this accident. I know that they will never hear it from me.
How can I ever remove this from my thoughts, the child that was named after me, died a very horrible death and suffered beyond anything that I could imagine.

Was it necessary to print this information? NO

My sincere thanks for all who tried to save these children, for that I will always be grateful.

I apperciate whom ever attepmted to save my friend Amber, but I do not believe it was appropriate to publish that her screams were heard. How could that ever put anyone that knew her at peace?

I Agree. Its a tragic loss for these two young individuals to be called upon so early in life. I find it very hard to obtain the information released. Thank you to the man who tried to save these two young peoples lives. However I dont agree with the comments written in this article. Its hard to deal with death, and death of a young person. Its more difficult reading such details. Please for future mishaps, please leave some information out. It would be greatly appreciated by friends and family Im sure.

First i would like to thank the people who tried to help our friends on that tragic day.They'll be missed!But as far as the person who wrote the article,I hope you think about what you write next time.Put yourself in that poor girl's family's shoe's and you read about your daughter screaming to her death,and will see how you'll respond!Personally I hope you never get to write another article again.I have no respect for people who would allow that to be published!!

I can't sleep. There is nothing else i can say except God be with them and our family and friends. Thank you for all the support and love you've given us. I feel that the article had no compassion, it was inconsiderate, had no taste, and was thoughtless.

P.S. to the writer of the article- i hope you sleep well at night.

sweet dreams,
from the mother of the darling angel that screamed in your article.
