Vigil Held for Mechanicsville Twins Caroline and Madison King

Last Saturday afternoon as I turned into my neighborhood, the second block of the street was closed off and there were a number of police cars, Fire and Rescue vehicles gathered around a house.

We would later find out that the unthinkable had happened. A father had taken the lives of his twin 3 year old daughters and then his own life.

Tonight, an outpouring of grief and sadness was displayed at a vigil that is still ongoing. I walked to the house, a block and half from my own and shared in the moment of silence for God’s newest angels, Caroline and Madison King.

Two rope swings hang from the large tree in the front yard that will never be used by the young pair so senselessly deprived of the joys of life at such a young age.

The neighborhood is full of parked cars as people come to morn the loss. At least 300 people came to share in memories of the girls.

Nathan Cox, who also lives in the neighborhood announced that BB&T Bank (804-746-3085) has set up a fund to help with expenses. If you call the Mechanicsville Branch of BB&T and ask about giving a donation in the memory of Caroline and Madison King the act would be appreciated by the family.

Please keep the mother and her son in your prayers. They will need God’s help to deal with such a tragedy.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
