Wow, among the other deaths are a husband + wife + daughter. The Altobellis leave behind a surviving son and daughter, holy.

Yeah, that's chilling.  I was listening to a podcast this morning and the discussion started out about the two worst fears of a parent.  (1) The death of a child.  (2)  As a parent, self death before your children are of self sustaining / adult age.  Not sure there's much of argument with that.

Some of the details suggest the helicopter was in quick descent for a minute before impact.  I think the altitude lost during that time was equivalent to 45 MPH.  I just can't imagine.

I won't say my wife and I never travel together without our daughter,  but it's often a consideration. I'd be hesitant about some of the highway drives around here in inclement weather with just my wife, for example.  Losing a parent or both would always be tough for my daughter, but I'll feel a bit more relaxed  about that risk once she turns 18 in a few years.

Yeah, I understand that one.  My wife and I have taken a few long weekends or a week here or there over the years where we have left the kids with relatives.  Its nice to do that, but there's always the thought that pops up in the back of our minds about what happens to them if something happens to us?  I mean, I know they would be taken care of, but its just such a jarring event.
