My heart goes out to her friends and family, it's horrific enough to pass away in a car accident, but then to be thrown on top of a building; that's just gruesome. Writing about these stories always reminds me of how short life is. We can be doing something as normal as driving and boom, life is over. It just reminds me to live as much as I can while I'm here because life is not guaranteed at all.
