Station Fire: 'It is so devastating to sit by your daughter's bedside and watch her slowly slipping away'
Ann Gruttadauria, mother of Pamela Gruttadauria, who survived 21/2 months before succumbing to her injuries from the Station nightclub fire, wasn't supposed to talk about the sentencing of club owners Jeffrey and Michael Derderian.
But she ended her comments, after describing her daughter's hospital stay, suggesting to Judge Darigan that he require Jeffrey Deredian's community service to be served out helping burn victims.
"That would mean a lot to me," she said.
Watching Pam at Massachusetts General Hospital, in Boston, was, "an emotional roller coaster ride," she said. "It is so devastating to sit by your daughter's bedside and watch her slowly slipping away."
"To lose a child is a grief beyond anyone's imagination. We are so grateful we had a chance to say goodbye to her."
