Phin Power Request

Post by green1 »

We had some shocking and tragic news this past weekend. This is the sister of one of my wife's friends going back to high school. Please keep the girls and their families in your thoughts and prayers and send whatever good energy you can to them as they figure out how to . . . what, live? move on? survive? I cannot find any words that can even begin to describe the depth of that sorrow.

Thanks

Parents of four girls killed in crash on Fairfax Parkway
Multi-vehicle accident claims couple who were 'dedicated' to their children's lives

The parents of four Fairfax Station girls were killed in a multi-car crash Saturday as they headed home in their sport-utility vehicle with an Italian takeout meal.

Michael K. Merrill, 47, and Jeanne M. Merrill, 42, were traveling north on Fairfax County Parkway with three of their daughters, ages 13, 3 and 18 months, when their Honda Pilot was hit by another car. The two vehicles then crossed into southbound traffic, where another car and a truck hit them, about a quarter-mile north of the Rolling Road exit, Fairfax County police said.
