(CBS) –A near west suburban family is dealing with the nightmare of losing their daughter, after a suicide bomber took six lives in Afghanistan.
In a brief interview with CBS news, Thomas Smedinghoff of River Forest expresses over and over just how proud his daughter made him.
“She was a remarkable woman that we have been so proud of her she has done so much in the short time she was here. She was doing what she loved,” said Thomas Smedinghoff. “She was doing a lot of work with education, she was working with women’s groups for equality for women. She was doing such a magnificent job.”
With a degree in international relations, Anne Smedinghoff got a job with the foreign service right after college, and traveled, knowing the risk.
