This is indeed quite dramatic, the daughter was young and her parents were not that old.
My heart goes out to those dear to them left behind...listen folk, this happen to any one, please be careful...you cannot imagine the pain and sadness this brings. Statistics say that American and British soldiers in Afghanistan and Middle East are less at risk at death than 4 times.
This is worst than going into action but also includes the rest of your immediate family and friends.
This no glib joke.
