SCHOHARIE, N.Y. (AP) -- A weightlifter with a heart of gold. A teacher who wanted better lives for her students. Newlyweds who held the world in their hands. They are among the 20 people who died in Saturday's limousine crash in upstate New York. The group included four sisters, two brothers and several longtime friends who had gathered to celebrate a birthday party.
What is known about the victims who have been identified so far:
AMY AND AXEL STEENBURG
The limousine that crashed Saturday was headed to a brewery in Cooperstown, New York, to celebrate Amy Steenburg's 30th birthday. Amy and Axel had been married in June and traveled extensively in recent months, according to their Facebook pages.
Amy, a nurse, was one of the four sisters killed the crash.
The couple lived in Amsterdam with their dog.
In her final Facebook post, Amy wrote that loved her husband "more than words can say."
"You are such an amazing man and entertain all my crazy ideas," she wrote. "Even when I move a couch just to move it back to the original place."
