I wish this article had merely a brief update on the charges, with more emphasis on the family's community and friends who are providing support and comfort in the GoFundMe page. I know sometimes people skip the article and zoom to the comments so here is the relevant link: Web Link May Eden Palmer rest in peace.

I honestly try to be measured about these things, and a 20-something going to jail for the rest of her life is a tragedy, but I sincerely hope she goes to jail for the rest of her life.

This tragedy freaks me. Seriously deep and no words can convey my sympathy. I drive this stretch with my children weekly. To think and FEEL. We are not immune. Were they on their way to PA’s Page Mill ECR soccer field? 280. The less traveled freeway. And ... I had no clue to tragedy until personal family loss struck, in an instant. Similar to a heart attack. Like a 5th wheel trailer pressing on your heart. Cars and freeways are lethal. I don’t know if I’ll ever get beyond.,deepest condolences to the loss of life.

Per MyFeelz point, I would like to request that the Weekly be sensitive to this family that has just endured so much, and separate this into two articles. I hope it’s not necessary to explain why.
