A Lowcountry hero was laid to rest Monday. Katie Dube was only 23-years-old, but made her mark as a dedicated mother and firefighter. Dube was killed in a car accident last week. A memorial service in her honor was held at the Knightsville United Methodist Church, where she was remembered with a lot of tears and laughter.

“We’re all here as one, one big family, so we’re all going to get through this, it’s hard,” said David Sweet, her fiancé.He is now raising the couple’s two girls, a four-year-old and two-year-old, who survived the crash. He said the outpouring of love and support is getting them through.

“It’s a time of hardship but we’re all here as one, we’re all going to get through it,” said Sweet. “It’s bad that my daughters don’t have a mom to grow up with now, but they still got daddy here.”
