    Holy shit, that's awful.

    I imagine right now you really want things to make sense. But isn't an answer that will make this okay.

    I hope you can take comfort in knowing that she had a friend like you and spent her last night with a sister who loved her. There's nothing good about a situation like this, but I really believe that counts for something.

    Damn, that's horrible news. I really don't know what to suggest. But if she was so close she was like family to you, maybe try talking to her father about it? Give him time to come to terms, but make sure to talk to him. He's lost a daughter just like you have lost a near-sister.

    Having seen too damn many of these accidents, i gave up trying to comfort the victims. and i can't say i am sorry without it mocking you, IMHO. believe me, it isn't disrespect. it is absolute respect that keeps me from offering those words.

    The article infuriated me with the man's status being satisfactory. it gave the impression he got a bed and a few nurses to hit on. Shoulda said, "he will live."
    and i hope his world becomes less satisfying damn quick.

    before bed tonight, i will pray for you.
    you got love here from everyone.

    Thanks for all your support, everyone.

    The viewing should be within the next 3 days.

    Her sister is said to be recovered, and should be getting out of the hospital today.

    Well, here’s the update.

    Being that her dad was a doctor, we had to wait over 2 and a half hours in line for the viewing. I found myself surprisingly calm the whole wait. So when we finally got in there, we were greeted by her relatives of course. I was fine until I got to the coffin, then I burst out in tears. Found out that her neck was snapped on impact- that's what killed her.

    The drunk is still in the hospital, his lef is broken. Serves him right, I guess.

    The funeral is tomorrow, we were given advice to get there at 10 AM to avoid traffic clogs.
