  • I can think of no words that would be anything but "cold comfort".

    All I can do is hope/pray/send out well wishes (however anyone wants to view it) that those who survived (the wife) to those affected by this tragedy.

  • There's social stigma and not much funding to provide for the mental health of people. It's so sad that others suffered at the hands of that man.

  • Yes, I live in San Tan Valley and that happened just a few miles from me. It is very sad. If the mother pulls through I can only imagine what her pain will be to find out the bad news if she doesn't know about already. I thought about that and if I were that mother, I don't know that I would want to live through it... but that would be selfish of course.
