your girls are beautiful from the inside and out from what I have read and seen!! as a parent I feel sick for you, and know that for some reason God has a better plan for them even tho right now it doesn't make sense. They won't be with you physically but spiritually they will always be with you. I do not know them, but will be praying for you and your family and friends as this will be the most difficult thing in your life to deal with. I pray God gives you peace and the girls give you signs that there around always! God Bless
