"When I heard about this, my heart just sank," said Rita Fromm, director of transportation for the school system. "I can't imagine how it could happen. The thought about what could have happened to that youngster, well, my heart sank." Fromm said she regularly reminds school bus drivers -- with newsletters and other notices -- to make "post-trip inspections."

As only bubbly 5-year-olds could, those 26 children gave Molly and Betty Shock an escape from their grief and helped them begin to heal. "That class was so full of joy," said Molly Shock, Stephen's widow. "Many times in my week, that was the most joy I had."
