Four-year-old Sincere Terry smiled and kicked the ball around the parkway outside his family’s West Side apartment building as michael kors handbagsthe adults stood nearby wondering whether he understood the enormity of the loss.

Four Chicago mothers out for a night to celebrate Mother’s Day and a friend’s birthday were killed in a crash. They left behind michael kors outlet six small children between them.
Just before midnight, the car, which police said was traveling at a high rate of speed, crashed into a cement support column in the middle of the street that holds up the elevated Green Line tracks in the 4800 block of Lake. Witnesses said the car split in two.
Found dead at the scene just after midnight were Tyshyra Hines, 21, Alicia Goston, 22 and Bernadette Harris, 25, the Cook County michael kors Medical Examiner’s Office said. Ieshia Nelson, 21, of the 1200 block of North Lockwood Avenue, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 12:48 a.m.
Police did not say who was driving the car, but relatives said they thought Nelson was. Tatiana Ward — a 23-year-old pal of the women — was in another car full of moms that was en route to meet up with Hines, Goston, Harris and Nelson at a downtown nightclub when she got a call telling them about the crash.
“We’d seen them just 10 minutes earlier — they were having a good time,” Ward said. “We were going to celebrate Mother’s Day after midnight — that’s the chilling part.
“How can you tell the kids when they’re too young to understand?”
Three of the young mothers were close friends http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutletweb.com who lived within a mile radius of one another in the Austin neighborhood, said James Williams, Hines’ step-father. The fourth, Harris, was dating Tyshyra’s brother.
“She was my baby,” said Williams. “There wasn’t anything I wouldn’t do for her,” he said, choking back tears.
Anthony Hines described his daughter Tyshyra as a hard-working single mother to 4-year-old Sincere.
Harris was the mother of two girls, 8 and 6, and a 4-year-old boy, her sister Sheila Harris said. Bernadette Harris worked as a medical assistant for a home health care company.
“She was real quiet, she was kind of shy. Hard working. She liked to joke around. She liked to help people. Her kids didn’t want carrera sunglasses for nothing.”
Nelson’s cousin drove by the crash scene, trying to make sense of what unfolded.
“Her mom said she was coming from a party,” Kita Higgins said, referring to Nelson’s mom.
Higgins said Nelson was the mother of a 2-year-old boy.
“She was real nosy,” Higgins said, wiping away tears as she laughed about Nelson’s penchant for getting involved in other people’s business. “But she (also) was real caring hearted.”
Goston’s family said she leaves behind a 2-year-old son.
At the scene Sunday morning, a neighbor living on Lake Street recalled the “boom” she heard a minute after midnight. Glenda Turner then looked out her living room window and saw smoke.
“I didn’t know it had split in two until I walked outside,” Turner said.
One part of the vehicle was hugging the cement support of the elevated train tracks, she said, while another was leaning against a utility poll.
“They only brought one person out of that car and put her in the ambulance. Everyone else was dead” at the scene, she said.
