    A very sad situation that at least results in a good outcome for the family. It's always tough when situations like this happen for everyone involved. The only thing people can do is try to move on and on the company side be as fair as possible. Sometimes companies are not as helpful as they could be which can result in long litigation. People in general should know there are companies that can help if the family is in trouble and a case like this is going on. They can get an advance that will help them through.

    I do believe the family has to say "thanks" to Mr. Marsh for destroying any amount of privacy that they may have had. Also, I wonder why Mr. Marsh stopped there........why not go ahead and tell the media what his payment amounted to. If you're going to tell, tell all![angry]
