Now Lindsey's three daughters are orphans. Friends promising they'll step up the way Kim would.

"So, my dear friend Kim, now it is my time to give your daughters what you gave mine: a friend, a family, and a Mom. It is finally time for you to rest in peace," close family friend Karien Dietrick said.

Lindsey was not just nurturing and loving to her own children, but to all the kids at Bak Middle School where she was the nurse.

"You walk into the nurses' room and you see different people, but no one can replace her. She was a ray of sunshine," student Kelie Hanley said.

No one at the service focused on the tragedy, instead, they kept their attention on daughters Sarah, Savannah, and Sofia.

"Know in your heart Kim that we have your back and your daughters will be cared for. I promise you Kim we won't let you down," Dietrick said.
