Woman Who Lost Husband and 2 Children has Box of Mementos Stolen

SACRAMENTO—

We met Linda Mozingo earlier this year when she lost her daughter, Amy, to a fiery crash along Highway 99.

“I’m gonna miss her so much. She was my best friend,” Linda said.

Just one year before, Linda lost her husband.

But tragedy struck again. A month after she lost her daughter to the crash, her son also passed from a massive heart attack.

“You tried your best, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it,” Linda’s son said shortly after her daughter’s death, thanking the young men who tried to rescue his sister out of the burning car.

Within two years, Linda has lost her husband and her two children. And when you think it couldn’t get any worse for her, it did.

She lost something else.

“I found this really special box, probably the most special box that I could’ve ever found,” Linda said.

Something she came across while packing up her home to move. Inside that box were her children’s baby shoes.

“Their first walking baby shoes,” Linda said.

Also inside were their silver baby cups, spoons and baby pictures – all gone are now gone, stolen out of her house.

“I would just appreciate if they would just please give them back,” Linda said.

It’s really all this grieving mom has left.

“They’re priceless to me … They’re gone and I just don’t understand why someone would take that box.”
