Evie Waddell got hit by a falling tree. A huge tree, probably an oak, that sideswiped her head and struck her back and left the Anniston EMS paramedic dazed in a mobile home park, along with Anniston firefighter Walker Kent.

Long before Anniston died, the little girl from Louisiana checked off items on her list. She starred in a talent show and rode a motorcycle and picked flowers and went swimming, more than 100 achievements in all. And she came here, to Anniston.
