Marlee Anne Kalmin
January 12, 1993 – December 23, 1995
December 23, 1995 was a day that changed my life and my family’s lives forever.
I was busy rearranging cars in preparation for a family trip to downtown Chicago to see the holiday decorations. As I backed out of the driveway, I felt a bump. I thought Marlee was inside of our home. Why she came out, God only knows. I backed over my baby girl because I could not see her behind my vehicle.
My whole world stopped in that instant. If rearview cameras came as a standard feature my daughter would be alive today. I would have seen her behind my vehicle. Rearview cameras should be a must so that no other family has to experience the pain and loss that our family did.
Marlee is greatly loved and missed every single day.
