The following is inaccurate – “Zac … was deployed to Iraq just hours after the World Trade Center Towers fell on 9/11.”

We didn’t go into Iraq until we after we ousted the Taliban from leading Afghanistan. Only after did we go into Iraq and that certainly doesn’t qualify as “just hours after”.

I’m very glad the Hartwell’s father is not planning on trying to profit off of this tragedy. It is a true testament to their love for their son that during this time of grief they are focused on celebrating his life instead of figuring out how to collect a check. The fact that so many people’s instant thought was to litigate just shows how out of touch most people’s priorities are with reality.

I feel terrible for his poor wife, Rachel. Her husband and dreams of having children were just taken away from her, just like that. Even though Zac drove badly, it was Ryan behind the wheel that night and it was Ryan’s car. Zac did not deserve to die like that. I can’t help but feel in my heart that Ryan should have delivered Zac back safely home. If it had been my husband, I would be so deeply angry, possibly unjustifiably so.

She ought to sue Ryan’s estate. She is going to need grief counseling and support through this. I think Hartwell’s father spoke too soon. Who will help pay the mortgage and the funeral costs and counseling for the widow?

He went into the car drunk himself, so he is also to blame. Not only Ryan. He could have said no.
