A comment came from Crystal Lake’s Evan after Vanessa Tobey was untimely killed in an automobile crash on Huntley Road and Waterford cut Saturday night just before midnight:
I was the first one to the scene as I was on way home from work. I immediately called 911, I did everything in my power to help these people.
I never knew Vanessa or her family, But I held her until the fire rescue arrived.
I wont ever forget what happened last night, and even though I never knew Vanessa, I will never forget her either.
Life is a very delicate thing, and every moment is precious, God works in ways we may never understand, But I know without ever knowing Vanessa that she has gone to a better place, and it angers me sometimes that we can never put the pieces together on why tragedies like this occur.
But i believe that for some reason God needed Vanessa, and that she will live on forever in everyone that knew and loved her.
I never knew you Vanessa, But I will never forget you….RIP
I am blessed to be able to pass on the following message that just arrived from Vanessa’s family to Evan:
Evan,We don’t know you, but from our family we want to Thank You for coming to help our precious Vanessa. Knowing someone like you were there to comfort and support her in her final breathes is something we are so greatful for. You are a true angel for doing what you did and again thank you for trying to help her. God sees what good you have done.
The Tobey Family
