LANDER, Wyo. — Friends of a Lander couple who lost two young daughters in a crash this week are raising money to help the family.

As of Friday, donors have given more than $122,000 to the Sean and Becca Lewis Fund online through the Web site givefoward.com. The goal is to raise $150,000 to help cover funeral expenses and to support the Lewises and their surviving daughter as they grieve.

Six-year-old Olivia and 3-year-old Emma Lewis died Tuesday after their mother lost control of their Suburban on a snowy road in Fremont County. Their vehicle was broadsided by a pickup truck after they spun into oncoming traffic.

Sean Lewis is a professor at Wyoming Catholic College.
