BATTLE GROUND, Wash. -- Hundreds packed a Battle Ground church to remember two women who died much earlier than anyone could have expected.

"We're so thankful that many people are here to support," said Slavik Kioroglo.  "We feel the support."

That support has been overwhelming since Sunday. Raisa Mosh, 45, and Irina Gardinant, 28, were at a baby shower.  Minutes after leaving somebody hit and killed them in a crosswalk. 

It was not until days later that detectives located the truck involved in the crash.  However, the owner is not cooperating.  It is unclear who was behind the wheel.

"We'd like them to come forward," said Kioroglo.  "People make mistakes."

But to run and hide can add to a family's pain.  These families have gone through so much.  Both women were wives and mothers.  They were loved by many.

"We are going to be together," said Kioroglo.  "Move forward with faith."

If you have any information about the deadly crash you are urged to call the police.  Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the driver.
