for my 2nd-cousin, twice-removed, Sophie Delott, 17-years-old, who was killed Friday night biking home. In the bike lane, with front-&-back lights on her bike. The drunk who killed her could apparently afford their BMW, but not a taxi ride when it counted the most.

I've never met Sophie, & now never will.

My condolences go to your entire extended family and all of Sophie's friends.

This is such a sad, sad story.

The Marines were going to be training her (after the same grueling basic training as everybody else, of course) to be a medic. I would guess, though don't know, that they might have eventually sent her through medical school.
