On December 30, 2005, Angela Gridley was doing laundry while on vacation in South Carolina. Her youngest daughter, Aliviah, age 2, climbed up into her lap, gave her a kiss and a hug, told her she loved her and climbed down. Then she went back outside to her father, Tim Gridley, who was having trouble untangling their dogs' leashes. In an effort to untangle them, he temporarily set the dogs free. When they bolted, Gridley's brother jumped in his pickup truck to chase them down. "As quick as a little one could run," her mother recalls, "Aliviah darted behind the truck before anyone could realize it." Tim's brother, Aliviah's uncle, backed out of the driveway, striking Aliviah and killing her.
