“They were my everything – my heart, my blood, my breath, my motivation,” she said Monday. “They helped me get through everything I needed to get through.”
Brown said the van's driver, Arnez Yaron Jamison, 27, of Greenville, is her boyfriend and the father of two of the children. He is facing four counts of felony DUI resulting in death, among other charges, WSPA reported. He also suffered a broken leg in the crash, according to the Greenville News.

The elder Jamison is taking the loss "just as hard as I am," Brown said.
As Brown plans the children's funerals – one set for Saturday in Greenville and another next week in New Jersey – friends and co-workers are raising money for her with a GoFundMe campaign. By early Tuesday, supporters had donated more than $42,000.
“I’ve just got to move forward, be strong,” Brown told the Greenville News. “I’ve been through a lot. It’s going to take a lifetime to heal, but I’m going to make it. I still have to do it for them.”
