    This is heartbreaking on both sides, the family who lost their loved one and the driver who has to live with the fact the this has happened. I pray that they both have the strength to deal with this tragedy.

    I feel bad for the driver also, who was driving along, having a normal day until someone's unsupervised child ran out in front of them. I hope they are not charged.
