But the relief and joy surrounding the miracle of their survival would be short-lived. A little over two weeks later, their family faced yet another tragedy – and, this time, they wouldn’t be able to escape unscathed.
Together for 22 years, fun-loving couple Dennis and Lorraine Carver shared two daughters and countless good times together. Their eldest daughter, 20-year-old Brooke, wrote in a Facebook post that her mom, 53, was “so full of life, always laughing and dancing.”
Her 52-year-old father was the perfect other-half to her mom’s wild side. “He was the hardest worker,” Brooke wrote. “The strongest man we have and will ever meet in our lives.” She said his main focus was taking care of his family, working “day in and day out all for [Brooke] and her sister.”
