Back in 2015 My son AJ was diagnosed with dyslexia, after going through testing in Manteca Ca. Afterwards we were referred to Ms. Leemarie Behlen located in Denair Ca. and at that point my son starts his “re-programing” so he can learn and keep up in school. This would have been a 18 to 24 month processes with a 30 minute commute From Merced Ca. where we lived at the time.
Windly had fought epilepsy since her mid-20s but had previously seen a specialist at U.C. San Francisco. We had her epilepsy under control, to the point she was able to get her driver’s license again. Windly had been a teacher for 15 years and was currently teaching at Tenaya Middle School, where my son AJ also attended as a 6th grader.
On September 7th, 2016, I just so happen to get a call from my Windly on her lunch break just to chit chat and my son was there in her classroom at the time, little did I know that would be the last time I would ever hear Windly’s and my sons voice again. Thankfully the conversation ended with “I love you”. After school was over, my wife Windly and son AJ were in route to Denair for his weekly tutoring session, like the have done before, on North bound 99 just outside of Atwater Ca unfortunately she suffered an epileptic seizer. Her foot pinned the throttle and the veered across the median into oncoming traffic where they were broadsided by a dodge ram pickup, both of them were killed instantly.
