The memorial for Delaney Rossman gets bigger everyday, and so does the heartache.
"It is sad, " sid Maria Manuli, "My daughter comes out, everytime she comes out she puts something out here."
Her 9-year-old daughter Marissa was one of several girls hit by a neighbor's car last Friday. She lost a tooth, others are wired together in her mouth.
But she is relatively lucky. Marissa not talked about the loss of friend, who died right in her front yard.
"I don't know if it has really hit," her mother said.
Troopers say the driver, Betty Jo Tagerson lost control, sending her SUV barrelling into Manuli's yard and into the girls, including three young triplets.
Tagerson and her ex-husband Jason Gordon, who she still lives with her, left a note with flowers at the memorial. It read, " Sorry about the tragedy. If you need anything let us know."
Maria was surprised, but Marissa and the rest of the family?
"They got really angry that she left something," said Maria, "I told them she probably feels bad and she did not do it on purpose."
Tagerson, was not home. Gordon, with a group of friends, tried walking away from our news crew. We asked him about the note.
"It is sincere and that is that," he said, "It is tragic, we are close friends with them."
The parents of the triplets have been keeping vigil at the hospital. Delaney Rossman died, while Gabrielle is getting better, but she has many broken bones and a collapsed lung.
The family says Isabella was pushed out of the way by her older sister Victoria, and while she only has scratches and bruises, her heart will be broken when they tell her.
"So many people were hurt by this I am very angry about it.." explained Maria.
Tagerson has not been charged. Trooper say they are still investigating and waiting for toxicology results.
