“He was a good person, but we know they are as well. We just want to make sure they understand that we know it was a tragic accident and it's something we're all going to have to live with,” said daughter Ashley, adding that she plans to write a letter to the girl and her family.
Here's more of what the family had to say:
- “I wanted to make sure they didn't spend a big portion of their life surrounding it around this one incident,” explained Vacca’s daughter Elizabeth.
