    The family's last name is DeJoode. Heather is mom/wife.

    Still don't understand what that jackwagon was doing going that fast in that particular area. Hope some measure of justice is served for the family, though I'm sure it will provide little solace.

    Re: DeJodie special on TV8

    my heart goes out to heather and her family. having worked with heather in the past, this is especially tough to watch. heather looks to have made remarkable progress and really looks and sounds as i recall.

    having to go thru what they are going thru. i can't even begin to imagine.

    based on what i saw on the tv and on the 'net (two different stories) they look to be managing incredibly well.

    heather - if you read this thread - i sent the video from kcci.com out to some of your old friends from myg.

    take care, thinking of you often.

    Everything I have heard about this terrible tragedy makes me admire the family more. The way they have dealt with this is inspiring. We're all definitely behind you!

    Not to justify his actions, but I thought he had a seizure while driving (thus why he was driving so fast and ran the stop sign), and the seizure was caused by some medical issue which should of kept a drivers license from him in the first place. I believe the prosecutions case is going to try and prove he lied about his condition to get his license back.

    I am familiar with family and it hurt to watch. Impressed with Troy.
