The loss of a loved one is never easy to accept, not only because the deceased is someone's son or daughter, but also because the loss means a substantial financial setback to the family; in most cases, the young man or woman had his or her entire life in which to earn a living for himself or herself, as well as his or her future family. The loss is tougher to accept if the victim's death was the direct result of someone else's fault.
