"The fact is we'll never be able to see Samantha, Rodney and the little babies again. Never again will we see them. We think about them everyday. The whole family is suffering, especially her mother, Tina. I believe in the justice system and I believe everything will turn out alright. I hate to see them man be punished, but the fact is he made the choice of getting in that car," Samantha's grandfather, Dale Adams said.

Greis suffered a fractured pelvis and broken arm in the crash.
