David, Kaylie and Annika were on their way to Kaylee's uncle's house for Thanksgiving when a man who was fleeing the police at a hundred miles an hour wrecked into their car resulting in their car exploding. All 3 we're dead on impact. All because a man was careless and did not worry about anybody but himself. I made this GoFundMe and order to help the family with cost of funeral and other expenses.

David and His family were taken from us way too soon. The Heartbreak of this will not go easy. We are all heartbroken and need your help. Funerals are not cheap and we would love to be able to put this beautiful family to rest. Anything helps truly. David, Kaylie, and Annika meant so much to my family. They lit up a room by just walking in. Made anybody and everybody laugh even on your worse day. David told me last week he always wanted to be an Uncle Carlos so thats just what he was to the kids. Our hearts are heavy in such a terrible loss of 3 amazing people. We thank you for the help. Rest Easy David, Kaylie, and Annika. We will see you again.. its never goodbye.

My name is Gabrielle I am a friend of the family I was asked to set this up to cover the costs of the funeral and burial.  my sister and I live across the street from Kaylie, David, and Annie. We used to Babysit eachothers babies. I loved them like family. This is the least i can do for such special people. <3

Nick Oliva did you even know what your talking about some nerve and shame on you for opening your mouth before even reading with your eyes. All 3 of them are victims of another person that was fleeing the police. Get yourself straight before leaving comments that you know nothing about what happened.

Nick Olivia they were not the ones fleeing from the police. Another man was pulled over, ran from police and hit their car. They were completely innocent victims.

Shame on you Nick Oliva! This couple was doing nothing wrong. They were on their way to Thanksgiving dinner with their family! they were hit and killed by someone who was fleeing law enforcement going 100 miles per hour! They were innocent and killed by a criminal. If you were driving down the road and were hit by a criminal fleeing the police would you want your family to be attacked like you are attacking this family? Shame on you. My prayers go out to those who loved this couple and their baby. May God give you comfort as you prepare to say goodbye to this lovely couple and their baby. At the moment I do not have funds to donate but when I get paid I will be doing so, so that you can give this family the burial they deserve. God Bless you.

I was horrified and heartbroken when I read the news about this beautiful family. We all try to make sense out of something that can't be explained. I think our first reaction is to try to blame someone, whether it be the individual who was being chased or the police actions , I am grateful that I don't have to make that kind of decision It's easy for me to sit back and think, well the police shouldn't have this or they should have done that.. These decisions have to be made in an instant. I think we are quick to try to find "fault". The bottom line is that this beautiful family was wiped off the face of the earth. My heart goes out to the people who's family members were taken away far too soon. May they find peace and take comfort with what ever Higher Power they believe in. God bless this family.

I want all of you to know that Nick Olivia's post has been deleted. I never saw it, I just checked. That said, I have a saying "NONE of us are as bad as our worst mistake", & in his case he made a mistake reading. He didn't have to be bullied. No one does. The cops had no right chasing after the guy. Those 3 lives may very well be alive today if it didn't happen. Too many families to are now in a horrible mourning because of what happened. The family of the guy that hit the innocent family has probably lost him forever, & no matter what you think of him, he was loved by someone & they aren't guilty of anything, but they are in great pain. I come from a place of compassion. It brings me peace. I hope it brings peace to the families that lost so much and to each of you.

David and Kaylie used to be my neighbors. Living just across the alley from us for a few years, I often found David walking to work in both Summer and Winter and was always glad to give him a ride to whatever hard job he was going to. He was always cheerful and loved his family more than the simple words we spoke could convey. He never stinted on his praise of family though his own youth was filled with such hardship. Always willing to lend a hand or help no matter the task, David proved the message of Christian charity in every thought or deed. I am shocked beyond belief that one so deserving of everything that life has to offer was cruelly taken from our world along with his beautiful wife and child. I can only believe that the Lord's Light shines upon these three souls and they will rest in peace forever. My wife and I are crying even as I write these words. Truly we have lost something rare and precious in this too often cynical world.

This is such a horrific time for the families and their friends to lose this whole family in the very worst way. Please accept my condolences and prayers. I am a little confused about the go-fund-me accounts. Is this one just for David and the other one for mom and baby or are they going to be combined for the funeral costs for all three? I think you may lose donations with two accounts going. I think you will get more donations if you shut down one account and combine them into one go fund me account. Just a thought.
