I am very new to this site. Out of respect and privacy for the family, I have chosen to not upload a photo at this time. Thank you. See More


Three children, 15, 17, and 18, are recently grieving the death of their mother- and my friend- due to suicide. Their mother was a good hearted person and brightened any room she was in. Her laugh was contagious. She was so incredibly proud of her children. She adored how different they all are from each other, and how- even with their differences- they maintain this unbreakable bond that you can't help but see and feel when they are together. The oldest has just started her first semester of college, and learning how to live away from home (on campus). Her middle child worked two jobs over the summer and is now concentrating on school and getting her license. Her youngest, the only boy, is fresh into high school and keeping busy with football. They are all very humble and kind children, and even in their recent time of despair, have shown more strength and tact than many adults have. These 3 kids live with their father, who works very hard to be sure they have everything that they need- going without himself - with a smile on his face. He is their support system, makes sure the kids get to school, and jobs, and practices... as well as continue to teach them to be decent human beings and respectful, compassionate young adults. I would like to start this fundraiser to help this family. The money raised will help the children with continuing their education after high school, and ease some of the stress and financial burden to their father. If you could meet these kids, you would see that they are meant to do great things. It is heart wrenching to think that they have to live the rest of their lives without their mother. The purpose of this page is my attempt at doing whatever I can to relieve even just a small piece of the sorrow and worry they are and will inevitably feel. Thank you for reading.
