A family’s story of triumph…written by Angie Halama

The headline in the Star Tribune on January 2, 2004, said, “Three Sisters Killed in Car Crash.” The story reported that on New Year’s Day the Mayer sisters—19-year-old Krista, 17-year-old Nikki, and 12-year-old Jessica—were on their way to Willmar.
