KHQ.COM - Two little girls, best buddies, spent the day playing soccer at a central Washington tournament in May. Gracie Snider and Ayla James were riding back from the game, laughing and talking like friends do.

But just a few miles east of Ritzville on i-90 on May 3rd, the vehicle the girls were in hit a semi truck. Gracie didn't make it and Ayla was seriously hurt.

Now, four months removed, the strength of both the Snider and James families are evident.

Sean Owsley sat down with Gracie's mom, Gretchen who shared that Gracie wanted to be a professional soccer player.  She loved, loved, loved animals and they called her the cat whisperer. "Every minute of every day she is though about," Gretchen said. When asked if Gracie's presence could be felt, in a tearful reply she said, "yes...the number 7 is everywhere."

For the Snider's they are trying to remember the moments they had with Gracie and appreciate the good things they still have in their life. Their motto today is "love on, live on."

A foundation has been started in memory of Gracie called, "Play for Gracie." All donations to the fund will do to support children who want to play sports who are not able to afford it.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The CIA director says he thinks the disclosure of America's secret intelligence is on the rise - partly due to what he calls the "worship" of leakers such as Edward Snowden.      That's what Mike Pompeo says in a TV interview as he expresses his belief that there seems to be an increase in the theft of U.S. secrets "'for the purpose of self-aggrandizement or money or for whatever their motivation may be."
