Personal note: Dear friends, our family is shocked with the death of this 14 years old girl and also the driver. We also are grateful for God's protection to our girls. Mariana was traveling in this bus for the last 15 months, in this same schedule, until we changed the contract to another transportation company, last month. Mariana's best friend, Marisa, minutes before the accident, asked a friend's mother for a ride, and didn't take the school bus.
