INDIANAPOLIS – David Sanders knew right away what first hire he wanted to make as Beech Grove’s new high school boys basketball coach.

His wife, Aimée.

“I told her the other night she was going to be the team mom,” Sanders said. “She’s preparing for her role.”

This designation is more than an honorary title. This is deeply meaningful to David and Aimee, who have struggled with personal loss for the past three years. The couple lost two sons, Kingston and Karson, who died at birth. A third, Krew, was lost in a miscarriage.

It was a journey of indescribable pain for David and Aimée, but grief also brought them closer together.

“Her grief is different from mine,” Aimee said. “But we both lost our boys and I think we tried to understand each other through our grief. David’s passion is basketball, mentoring young men and being there for kids. I’ve talked to other families and heard about other families where this tragedy took a toll on the relationship, but it brought us closer together.
