WEST JORDAN, Utah – Community members said they were shocked and devastated after hearing two young sisters were killed in a flash flood in Little Wild Horse Canyon.
Dozens of friends and neighbors spent Tuesday afternoon tying pink and teal ribbons throughout the neighborhood. They also planted flowers in the yard, put up signs and wrote cards for the family.
Everyone who spoke to KSL said everyone in the area loved the sisters, ages 7 and 3, who died in Monday’s flash flood.
“They are the sweetest kids. They just win your heart over. My heart melts every time I see them. It’s so hard to see them gone,” said Jennifer Vanleuven, a friend and neighbor of the family. “We know it’s not going to fix anything, but just so that they can feel our love for them.”
