From Deep Grief to Extravagant Joy

You may remember the story from about a year ago of the Coble family, where, on the I5 freeway, the three children pictured here were killed. The van their mother was driving was struck by a semi-truck, reportedly traveling at an excessive speed.

TRAGIC LOSS: Emma, 4, Katie , 2, and Kyle , 5, were killed in a auto accident with a big-rig on the south-bound lanes of the Santa Ana (I-5) Freeway in Mission Veijo.


The parents became involved in restructuring of laws concerning traffic of trucks on America’s highways.

Time has passed–almost a year now. Mom and Dad coped with their loss.

And now, as of Wednesday night–almost a year to the date of the tragic loss of their children–God has blessed this strong couple, and she has given birth to triplets. Take a look at the happiness recorded in this link.

They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

I was friends with Chris when he met Lori. I have followed their story and have been deeply saddened for their loss. It is great to see their work for improvements in the trucking industry and awesome that they have been blessed to be parents once again.

Tiffanie, welcome to my blog. Hope you’re here often.

Are you still in contact with this family? How are the babies?


Wow, that is so sad about how their kids were killed. And amazing that she had triplets! 2 girls and a boy at that…God is good…

Jen, isn’t that the greatest thing, that after the terrible loss, God gave them a set of triplets. In no way will the three new babies take the place of the ones who were killed, but I’m sure they will be a source of joy in their own rights.

Love you
