Bartchy apparently you are not a parent. If you were you would whole-heartedly agree with the families comment. Although this is a tragedy for all involved and completely heart breaking I can't imagine anyone not agreeing 100% for the statement they posted. To the Benzel family, as a mother myself my heart breaks for you and your family. We trust others with our children at times and I can't even begin to imagine the pain you are experiencing because of such an irresponsible decision on someone else's part with your loved one. I pray for you.

Being the Parents of the little girl that did not even have a chance to wear a seat-belt...we sent our daughter off with adults that were to protect her as we would. We will have to live the rest of our lives thinking what if! All it would have taken was a phone call for us to come and take them safely to the party. Many know me and I am not one to judge but as a grieving parent myself this ANGERS me. I realize this left a community in shock, but it left me without my beautiful baby girl. Rest in Peace Addisyn Shaye Benzel We can hear you singing! We love you!

My condolences to their family, both blood and department.

However, as a mother, I'm utterly infuriated that the irresponsible act of these two adults has cost another family the life of their child. I completely understand that the other driver was the one who crossed the center line. That is totally irrelevant. Not only were these two people PARENTS, charged for the safety of their own children, but also that of the other children in the vehicle, the safety of whom they had blatant disregard- they were FIREFIGHTERS. More versed on the DANGERS of traveling as they were than anyone else. Ohio State Highway Patrol was quoted as mentioning "no law in Ohio forbidding children in the cargo area..." WHY do FIREFIGHTERS (who respond to accident scenes!) need a LAW to validate something that is common sense??? It's disgusting. Prayers and condolences for the little girl's family as well.
