Lesa Hess sits around the kitchen table in her Burnsville home with her daughter Shannon and son Adam. These two teenagers have been through a lot. Hess actually had three kids. 19-year-old Taylor died in July while driving her siblings to El Paso, Texas to visit family. Taylor crossed the centerline and hit a semi head on.
