Carolyn Denmark remembers the day that changed her life seven years ago vividly.

“It was on a Monday morning in February. It was a cool and clear day,” Denmark said. “It was on February 27, 2012, to be exact.”

On Feb. 27, 2012, two days after Denmark’s 57th wedding anniversary, she, her husband and their daughter, Kaye Kelley, were in Kelley’s car. Kelley was driving them to lunch.

“We were going to meet my sister and her husband for lunch,” Kelley said. “I had pulled out of the parking lot of the service station and in just a matter of minutes, we were hit.”

Kelley’s car was struck by a distracted driver.
