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

Dear Wendy and Kimberly,

Mere words cannot express the depth of despair that I feel every minute of every hour of every day since you two were killed on June 10, 2000 .

You two were so excited that morning. You, Wendy, because you were going to help your best friend get ready for her son's birthday party; picking up the cake and making the party favors. Kimberly you were excited about going swimming and playing with the kids, eating ice cream and showing your new “Tweety” swimsuit with the flower on it. The last time I talked to you, I spoke to both of you on the cell phone and you invited me to the party. I will regret to my dying day that I said no.

What I do not regret was the love we shared and how we told each other every day “I love you” as we did when you left the house that morning and at the end of our phone conversations.

I always remember teasing you about being my favorite daughter and “Bestest” granddaughter, and you both laughing and saying , “That's because we're the only ones you have.” Wendy I use to tease you about how I wasn't too fond about being called Grandma, I would give anything to hear it once again.

I know that my life and the lives of your family and friends have been so diminished by your deaths and that never again will we be the same. I also know though I cannot hold, hug and laugh with you again, God is, and that gives me great comfort. It also comforts me that God has never broken a promise and he promises to take care of us. He is.

So many people have asked how they can help me. I tell them to pray and when they see their families, to give them a hug for me and please don't drink and drive. I wish that right now I could hug the two of you. You both filled my heart with such joy. I miss you so much.

Wendy and Kimberly, I love you and I like you.

Love, Mom / Grandma
