Grants Pass, Ore. — More than a year after the crash that killed 15-year-old Aryen Chambers, her mother, is finally getting closure.
“This last year has been complete hell for me,” Terri Puckett said.
Terri Puckett is the mother of 15-year-old Aryen Chambers, who died as a result of the 2015 car crash, involving Breanna White.
“I’ll never get to see my daughter again. Ever. Nobody will – and she was the most loving smiling, happy, child ever,” Puckett said.
Losing her child, then reliving the tragedy in court has been painful for Puckett.
“I feel guilty when it rains because my daughter is six feet under in a pine box,” she said.
But she said it’s all worth it to see white paying for her actions.
“I feel like we’re well on our way and we’re on our last step of getting justice for her,” she said.
It may be the last step, but it wasn’t all Puckett was hoping for.
She doesn’t think White’s 18-year sentence is enough.
“Really, I was hoping for 23,” Puckett said.
Now, Puckett is trying her best to move forward.
“My heart doesn’t hate her, I wish her the best. I hope that she gets the help that she needs and that this never happens to another kid,” Puckett said.
