~In Memoriam of Wendy and Kimberly Sands~.............

On June 10 th 2000, my 26 year old daughter Wendy and 6 year old granddaughter Kimberly were off to a birthday party. They asked me to go with them and I told them thanks but no thanks. We kissed and hugged each other and we told each other' “I love you” and off they went. Later that evening I received a phone call from Wendy's friend and she asked to speak to Wendy. I informed her that she was not home yet. She told me to quit kidding her and that they left her house over an hour ago. I told her I was not joking around and went looking for them. I came upon a crash. It was Wendy and Kimberly. A three time repeat offender in a dodge ram truck ran a stop sign at 96 miles per hour T- boning Wendy's car. Wendy was the point of impact. She died within seconds. Kimberly, though wearing a seat belt was thrown from the car during one of the many times it rolled. She lay in a pile of rocks struggling to breathe for two minutes before she too died……
