Best Friends Forever

Krystal Tobias (9) and Laura Hobbs (8) of Zion, Illinois, best of best friends, went for a bike ride together on Mothers’ Day. They never came home. Sometime in the middle of the night, whoever had prevented them from going back to their mothers, repeatedly stabbed both of them and left them in a park near their homes. Laura’s father and grandfather found them at dawn Monday.

Laura and Krystal
May they rest in peace. Our prayers go out to their families and friends.
