Melissa and Harold Stanley were thrilled when their identical twin daughters were brought into the world on March 3, 1952. They had been trying to have kids for over five years but had no luck. Finally Melissa became pregnant and they prayed that she would not have a miscarriage. Things worked out and their two beautiful daughters named Sally and Molly were healthy and rambunctious babies. The days went by and the twins grew up so fast that the parents wished they could press the pause button on time so they could enjoy the precious time with their daughters before they grew up. Before they knew it the twins were off to kindergarten, learning how to read and write. The Stanley's were both happy and sad to see their little girls grow up so fast.
Then one day the unthinkable happened as the twins were walking home from school and crossed a busy street. The twins were not paying attention as they skipped across the road. A delivery truck that was behind schedule ran a stop sign and plowed into the girls, killing both of them instantly. The Stanley's were devastated.
The driver could not accept what he had done and became an alcoholic and suicidal. The Stanley's decided not to pursue legal action against the driver because nothing would bring back their daughters. At one point Mr. Stanley thought about murdering his wife and killing himself just to end their misery.
The Stanleys started to go to church and their emotional wounds began to heal. Two years later after the deaths of their daughters Mrs. Stanley was pregnant again and nine months after that she unbelievablely gave birth to twin girls. The Stanley's did not know what to think and out of memory of their deceased twins they named the new twins Sally and Molly as well.
The girls grew up with an uncanny similarity in personalities to the previous twins. But the parents treated the girls very differently from the deceased girls. They were overprotective to the point of neurosis. They smothered the girls and decided to home school them, but soon friends and family told the Stanley's that they had to learn to let go and that the twins needed to go to school and have friends. It was hard but the Stanley's knew that they had to start relinquishing control over their daughters as they were almost nine years old.
Slowly the Stanleys broke the girls into normal life for a child. They had the hardest day of their lives as they had to let their twins walk to school on their own. The girls left the house that day excited to meet new people. The Stanleys looked out the window and watched their daughters walk down the street until they disappeared around a corner. They started to cry hoping that everything would be okay. Thoughts of terror ran through their heads, not knowing what their daughters were doing. The inability of not having their daughters in their immediate field of vision wracked their nerves.
They stood by the window the whole day waiting for their twins to come home. Then at 3:30 the the twins rounded the corner and at the same time a big truck barreled down the road. The twins didn't see it coming as they crossed the street but then a man stepped out of the crowd and dove in front of the truck pushing the twins to safety. He was crushed to death.
That man was the delivery driver that had killed the first set of twins only years ago.
