This is a horrific event... I can't even begin to imagine how this woman will feel when she is in recovery. My prayers are with her and her family. May these two little angels fly in heaven.

We can only pray for the survivors and hope that God will be with them and steer them through this. Thereasa is a Fod fearing wonderful woman and my thoughts and prayers for her and all involved. She is a really sweet girl and loved her children more than life itself.
