July 4, 2007, 9:00 a.m. - Marigold, Maryland – on the Eastern Shore
Sheba Davis sat on the back seat of her twin Ernie’s snazzy black Porsche just behind Martina Solomon, who was both their friend. Martina’s daughter, Kaya, sat just behind Ernie and from time to time looked at Sheba and smiled. Kaya was nine and often commented on Sheba’s burgeoning belly. Five months pregnant, Sheba often touched her own body where her baby had begun to move. Now she thought sorrowfully that her late husband, Scott, would have loved watching his child grow, touching his wife ardently the way he did. They were so in love. She felt the start of tears just behind her eyelids.
