Some of you guys might remember Amanda Jahn, who was a cafemom member killed last year by a drunk driver.  I did not know her but I just saw this and thought some of you might want to read it.

I am in tears.. I pray the lawyers don't get that woman a reduced sentence.. I remember this but reading this a year later, and about her husband, just breaks my heart more!

I cant believe its been a year already. Thanks for posting this. I was truly saddened by this story and I hope the dad has found some peace. Enjoy every moment with your kids, even when they are driving you crazy.

I hope that the woman who murdered that lovely family, doesnt get released, and ALWAYS remembers what awful thing she did!

Thank You for sharing that story...reading something like that brings tears to my eyes, but it makes me appreciate every moment i have with my family..even the not so great ones.

I remember reading about this on here last year. It was very sad. To see how her husband is coping a year later with losing his family & the way he speaks of it & sends a positive message is amazing, and I cried reading it. I would love to see him speak in person. He is a strong man.

Thank you for posting this.
