Reader tributes

I was probably on your train at one point. God bless your family as they deal with this difficult time and shame on the people who are so quick to judge and "hold others responsible", without any human compassion whatsoever. Accidents happen, fate happens, as sad and confusing as it is for the ones left behind, these beautiful women and men who lost their lives was simply due to FATE. Their challenges and trials are now over. God Bless everyone left behind, it's no doubt a horrible time.
