BOTHELL, Wash. -- A freak accident caused by terrible weather took the lives of a husband and wife from Bothell.

Friday, more than 200 people came to a vigil in honor Tim and Cheryl Owen -- and for members of the family still in the hospital.

Last Friday Tim and Cheryl were on a family trip with their three children and son-in-law. The record snow on Stevens Pass and treacherous weather destroyed trees.

One falling limb crushed the family car, killing Tim and Cheryl. Three other family members are still in the hospital, but one isn't -- Jeremy.

"I don't know what I'd do without you guys. You guys have been my rock, my foundation," Jeremy said as he spoke to the crowd.

He wiped tears away, thanking the hundreds who came and spoke words to his parents.

"I'm gonna be a strong man," he said. "I'm going to take care of my sisters. Dad, Mom, I'm gonna make it. I'm gonna make it for you only. I love you so much."
