ST. CHARLES – The steps leading up to the Baker Community Center in St. Charles were decorated for a birthday party, with pink and pale purple balloons tied with matching ribbons swayed in the cool spring breeze March 14.
About 100 people attended the open house and birthday party for Tiffany and Brittany Coffland, who were shot and killed by their father a year ago. Randall Coffland also shot his wife, Anjum Coffland, in the legs and then took his own life.
Anjum Coffland said she wanted to host the event not only to mark what would have been the girls’ 18th birthdays, but to thank the community for its support during the past year.
