ANDY – SEPHORA – (7/12/15) – MEMORIAL WOD
Ohana means family. This date will remain locked in our GT WOD vault. Today we celebrate the life of two young souls taken away from us too early, Andy and Sephora. Who were they? They were Dori’s students. Nothing is fair or just about this story. There was no rhyme or reason for this tragic event. Its a tragedy we must remember and honor. This is a reminder never to take your life for granted. Stop living for the weekend or after 5pm. Embrace your loved ones and cherish each moment, and make them count.

BAY SHORE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A man and his two children died early Sunday morning when they were trapped in their car after another vehicle rear-ended them on a Long Island roadway. The man’s wife escaped and survived.
The man was identified as Ancio Ostane, 37, of St. Albans, Queens. His children were Andy, 8, and Sephora, 4, CBS2’s Hazel Sanchez reported.
They were traveling in a 2005 Toyota westbound on the Southern State Parkway near exit 41 in Bay Shore around 1:30 a.m. Sunday. They were returning home from a family gathering in Central Islip, Newsday reported.
Their vehicle was struck from behind by a 2008 BMW, state police said. The Toyota was engulfed in flames upon impact, authorities said.
Lucine Bouaz-Ostane, Ancio’s wife, escaped the burning vehicle and was treated for minor injuries at Southside Hospital. The driver and two children were pronounced dead at the scene.
Bouaz-Ostane says she is lost without her family.
“If it’s up to me I don’t have a future,” the mother said. “I don’t have a reason to live, I don’t have a reason to work.”
“My children will be in my heart forever,” Bouaz-Ostane told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria. “My dear, humble husband — no words. Great guy.”
Ancio Ostane was a professor at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn.
The driver of the BMW, Oneil Sharpe Jr., fled, police said. He was later arrested at the home of the car’s registered owner on charges of driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an accident.
“I don’t care what they do to that person because that’s not a human being to begin with,” Bouaz-Ostane said. “All I want is my family, and that’s impossible.”
Neighbor Robert Williams is stunned and heartbroken about the tragic loss of his neighbors.
“We wave we say hi,” Williams remembers. “We see him cutting the grass the kids running around. It’s kinda sad. It’s really sad.”
