EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Lisa Lynch, the mother of Alyssa and Caleb Lynch, who died in that house fire, talked exclusively with 14 News about her children and the moments leading up to that horrific morning.
Lisa can't help but smile as she talks about her oldest child, Alyssa, 8.
"She had her own way of expressing her love," Lisa said. "She made cards for me or anybody. She was constantly reading. She loved to read her Junie B. books."
But a much different expression emerged as she remembered the man in her life, Caleb, 5.
"Anytime I was sick and I just had a sad moment he'd come up to me and hug me and tell me that he loved me and asked me if I was okay, and sometimes it would make me feel bad because I was supposed to ask him if he was okay," Lisa said.
The two children, the single mother said, were her life.
She provided for them financially, working long hours at a nearby factory, and emotionally, helping them with homework and hugging them whenever she got the chance.
She said being a single mother, she couldn't be there for them all the time, so she trusted them with someone she said she thought would reciprocate her feelings for them: her boyfriend Jeffery Weisheit.
"Everything was normal," Lisa said. "I had nothing to suspect and then I get a call from John 'the house is ablaze.' I was just in disbelief."
Lisa did not want to talk anymore about the fire or her relationship with Weisheit, instead she's focusing on filling the hole in her heart, and the community she said has helped to begin that process, with cards from her daughter's Cynthia Heights Elementary class.
"They all basically have the same message," Lisa said. "That they are sorry for my loss and just hoping that I feel better and these have really meant a lot."
Beyond that, the support has been flooding in.
Lynch said it's come in cards, pictures of her children, or even donations to the memorial fund she set up at Old National Bank.
Still, no amount of money will ever replace her Caleb and Alyssa.
"The only thing I want is for my kids to be back in my arms," Lisa said. "The only thing that would make me happy, the only thing that I need are my kids."
Lisa wanted to thank all the emergency personnel and everyone else who has offered support during this difficult time.
