(East Peoria Illinois USA)
My sister Laura was 45 years old; her birthday is May 17th. On December 11th this year, just 2 weeks ago, she had a massive heart attack that killed her instantly. When she fell over, she knocked over a candle and her house burnt down, I got the call first that it was on fire, I called my mom then dad then other sister to get up there. I arrived right after the fire engines, theydrove by me and I watched them in slow motion and thought "Oh my god I hope they're not going to Lauras", and about 5 minutes later I got the call from her neighbor and they were at Lauras.
We did not have a body to identify, at first they could not tell if it was a man or woman she was burnt so bad, my daughter and myself went to the police station saturday the 12th and identified her jewelry, my daughter is 22.
I still can not believe she is gone, she had twin boys who are 13, and now they have to go live with their dad and we don't know how that is going to work as they were fighting in court for custody. Now she is gone so we just don't know what is going to happen. My parents go to a lawyer Tuesday to see if they can have some kind of grandparents rights.
Laura was my best friend in the whole world and I miss her every minute, I have an 8 year old son and my daughter and my husband but I am so alone. Please help me out. Please this is Christmas and it is so horrible...
