The Cardinal Newman Society is joining Wyoming Catholic College (WCC) in mourning the tragic deaths of a professor's two daughters who both died as the result of injuries suffered in a car accident.
Dr. Sean and Becca Lewis's two daughters died on Tuesday, according to the College’s website. Members of the College community gathered that night to pray for Olivia, 6, and Emma, 3, according to a Facebook post, and the College is asking for continued prayers for the Lewis family.
“We are deeply, deeply saddened by this tragedy,” said Dr. Kevin Roberts, president of WCC. “Our hearts are breaking for Sean, for Becca, for Olivia and Emma's sister, Vivian, and for the many, many friends and family who have been touched by these young lives."
A number of funds have been started to financially aid the Lewis family, including one by friends of the family and one by a member of their extended family.
