For most of their lives, fraternal twins Abril and Brisa Delapaz were inseparable, according to relatives.Last year, the 26-year-old sisters had gone on their first trip to Europe. A little more than a week ago, they had just participated in a 5K run in Chicago. And, naturally, on Saturday they both went to a friend’s going-away party.”You could never have one without the other,” said their brother Pablo Delapaz, 27, Sunday evening. Police said it was about 4:45 a.m. when their Dodge Neon crashed into the back of a parked semi-truck in the 10300 block of South Commercial Avenue in the city’s South Deering neighborhood.Brisa had been driving south toward the Hegewisch neighborhood. They were almost home.”It’s just crazy. They came into this world together and went out together,” Delapaz said.Only two weeks earlier, Abril Delapaz graduated from Roosevelt University, where she was studying biochemistry, Delapaz said. She had just started a medical internship at Rush University Medical Center. “It was great,” Pablo Delapaz said. “She was the first one in the family to go that far. She went to the extreme because she really wanted to make a difference.”Brisa also had attended Southern Illinois University in an effort to start a career in zoology.Even though the sisters often seemed attached at the hip, each was remembered for her own personality.”Abril loved music. She was always dancing. Brisa was a goof. If anything happened, she would roll with it,” Pablo Delapaz said. “They were always crazy, but they were also thoughtful,” he added. “Both were a godsend to the family.”The sisters were the centerpiece of a tight-knit family who lived together in their home in the Hegewisch neighborhood on the city’s Far South Side.”Our mom is so distraught,” Delapaz said. “When our father heard, he just broke down.”Funeral arrangements are pending.
