May the Bentley family find comfort in knowing their daughter was on the Lord's errand and now is in the embrace of her Savior. I also hope that Sis. Love will recover and find peace as she deals with this tragedy. I also pray for the driver of the other car to recover fully and to have peace and comfort. It is never easy for anyone involved in such accidents.

i feel bad for the companion., i never been n a mission but long time ago when i was closer to God doing service, death was not feared, like a soldier in a battlefield.Death always bring sadness to the ones who are left behind.

My heart goes out to the Bentley family. What a difficult and tragic end to a mission. I have served a mission and several of my companions and I had a few close calls of our own while we served in the (USA) Washington DC North & Maryland, Baltimore missions. I don't know what I would have done if any of us had actually died as a result of these close call/accidents. May the Lord watch over & bless all of the families involved.
