Denise Huber's parents had already presumed that their missing daughter was dead. They must have reserved a special place in their hearts and minds for a miracle, but when it didn't come and when authorities in Arizona found her body nine days ago, the Hubers finally got relief from three years of cruel uncertainty. Perhaps because they had already come to grips with Denise's death, Ione and Dennis Huber have focused their comments on the future.

ANGEL AYALA was 8 months old when he was taken to King/Drew's emergency room in 1993, suffering a fever and seizures. No one at the hospital was sure what was wrong. His mother, Diana Ayala, says he was sent home a week later, just as sick as when he arrived. Doctors did not pick up on the fact that he had a viral infection, according to an analysis of the case by lawyers for the county. A spinal tap was misread as normal.

The accident that claimed 13-year-old Julia Cukier Siegler happened fast, and it replays on an infinite loop in her mother's mind. "Julia was pressing the button, waiting," said Jody Cukier Siegler. "I could see her blond hair dancing between the branches of the eucalyptus tree. The bus driver motioned. I see the blond hair leave the branches. The bus goes through the light, and I hear Julia being hit. " About 7:20 a.m. on Feb. 26, 2010, the Harvard-Westlake Middle School eighth-grader stepped into the crosswalk on Sunset Boulevard at Cliffwood Avenue, against a red light, to catch her eastbound school bus. The side mirror of a passing SUV clipped her, spinning her to the ground.

When death strikes in a Jewish family, the traditional mourning follows a somber pattern--no work, no entertaining, garments torn, praying thrice daily, and unrestrained tears. For seven days, the bereaved remain at home, always with a light burning, symbolizing the inextinguishable soul. The mourners wear slippers, and sit on a low stool or other low place, signs of deprivation. "Extolled and hallowed be the name of God. . . .

The husband of a close friend dies. You want to send your condolences. You check the cards at the local drugstore, but nothing seems right. Too flowery. Too religious. Too formal. So you sit down with pen and paper and start to write. You are gripped with an overwhelming feeling of helplessness. Everything you start to say seems awkward or cliched or inadequate. You want to be warm and supportive. You want to express your sympathy. You want to say just the right thing. You have writer's block.
