These were young adults, not small children, she didn't  want to leave behind...and even then... Why the #$%& you'll take your children's lives? End yours if that's what you want. What madness is this?  This is sad, I can't  believe tho, this woman was so selfish with the lives of her grown children. She must've end them while asleep. Gotta investigate pops. Don't  care who made what call.
