FOND DU LAC---The tragedy in Oklahoma is hitting especially close to home for the community where the grandparents of victim Sydney Angle live. The 9-year-old died  with six classmates Monday when an EF 5 tornado hit Moore.

Not only has the couple lost their daughter, but their home as well.

"I put myself in her position," family friend Vicki Steinhardt said of Sydney's mother, "and how she must be feeling. I just can't imagine. I just want to get in the car and go to them."

Laura Schneider had seen Sydney as recently as November for a wedding in Wisconsin. "She had a smile that lit up a room always. She was a wonderful young lady as anybody's child would be."
