RIVER FALLS, Wis. (AP) — A mother whose three daughters were murdered by their father in northwestern Wisconsin is working to honor their memory, is remarried and is expecting a child.

Jessica Peterson says she misses her girls a lot and will always carry the pain of their loss. But, Peterson says she’s trying to live her life in a way that would make the girls proud.

Peterson and the River Falls community have raised nearly $250,000 so far for the Tri-Angles Playground in memory of 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia. The cost of the playground is $550,000. The girls’ father, Aaron Schaffhausen, is serving life behind bars for their deaths in 2012.

Peterson, who is seven months pregnant, said she will always be a little sad and a little happy at the same time.
