    The one thing, I want you to do Kevin and Hannah, as someone who lost their best friend in Sophomore year- Remember them in the pictures, not int he casket and take it one day at a time. 

    Loosing my friend Chris in our sophmore year was hard. I've never heard such a quite, hesitant Trumpet section. As a clarinet sitting in front of them, it takes you aback how much one person, let alone three can effect a group as a whole. It was the same for our after school and post graduation events.

    Kevin and Hannah, please do not stop living. Live for yourselves and keep doing the things that you love, so long as you do this your friends (atleast in my instance) will seem even closer than before.

    One of the things I love the most about the RT community is the intense feeling of family that everyone shares. Rooster Teeth has brought people from all ages, nationalities, races, and origins together to all celebrate and create the things we love. I believe I speak for everyone in the community when I say that this tragedy cuts deep. The loss of friends and loved ones is always the hardest. But while Kyle, Holly, and Dale aren't with us in life any longer, I know that they are here in spirit. Though this horrible event has marred the event, I think we should all remember that the joy and laughter that Rooster Teeth provides is what brings friends, families, and millions of others together as one to share their passions, their happiness, and their love as a family. 


    Kevin, my deepest condolences to your lost. Know that my prayers go out to you, your sister, and the families of the passed. I hope that over time, your heart will heal. I hope that the RT community will begin making you whole once again.

    Always sad to hear this story. Hope the past year has been good to Kevin. I know it can't have been easy to go through what he did.

    I just found out about all of this, including those lost...today. @kdicicco, I'm so happy to hear that you and Hannah are OK. I had heard that Hannah was at RTX this year, and had I known the story, I would've loved to meet you both. I'm so sorry that Holly, Dale, and Kyle passed.

      I don't recommend this, no offense. But if you are planning this, try not to drive late at night, you may see more confused drivers that way.

      The trip itself was fun before the worst happened. As Burnie said, the road trip is a normal thing to do and is usually a fun experience. If you go with friends it can really be a fun experience. Have much fun with your friends as possible because there's no way of knowing what will happen in life. Stay safe, because even though I don't know you, I care.

    It's also really comforting to see there are so many dedicated and kind fans out there from this community.

    Me and my best friends was literally 5 mins behind them we had to stop and get gas if we hadn't of stopped we believe that it would've been us. We was traveling from East Tn we live 5 mins from the VA border in a town called Bristol and its roughly a 5 or 6 hour drive from my house to VA Beach where I believe they were coming from. We ended up setting in traffic for 3 hours playing cards against humanity and just horsing around we finally decided to just drive across this grassy area on our right to get to across to a road so we could continue our journey to RTX we was suppose to arrive around 6 am but when we finally got checked into our hotel and go to RTX it was almost 11 I feel so blessed for not being apart of this accident but my heart goes out to the victims because I know it is horrible I have lost a few friends from vehicle accidents it also doesn't help that they lived so close to me I am thankful for everything that the community and Rooster Teeth has done as a whole for them this is why I love all of you.

    As Burnie put it, I feel as if Kyle, Dale and Holly were friends we never got to meet, and the RT community is heavily devastated by this loss. Kevin gave some very true words, and it's an eye opener to see that our time in this world isn't defined, so we have to make the most of it. When Kevin said that Ray donated $2,000, my heart became overwhelmed because our community is so close knit, and we're all a family.
