Community grieves for moms, daughters killed

Hundreds of people lined Lancashire Avenue on Monday evening clutching signs and flowers and candles as they waited for the procession carrying four deceased Louisvillians to pass through. 

Louisville firefighter Lesley Prather, 40, and her daughter, Rhyan, along with Carrie McCaw, 44, and her daughter, Kacey, were on their way to a volleyball tournament in Kansas City, Missouri, when they all died in a crash on Valentine’s Day. Both of the daughters were 12.

Since then, the community has mourned their loss, from fire fighters to local volleyball leagues. Monday was the culmination of all that grief as the bodies of the four came back home. 

Firefighters draped flags over bypasses, and children came out in their favorite KIVA jerseys. The air smelled of candle wax and roses.

In a joint statement released before the procession, Major Bobby Cooper with Louisville Fire and Brian O’Neill, the president of the IAFF Local 345 chapter, expressed gratitude to St. Louis and the first responders who handled the crash that killed their fellow first responder.
