 SAINT JOSEPH, MI
With a very heavy heart we write this:

As most of you know we have lost an important part of our community. Denise Bohn-Stewart was tragically taken from us this week. The Stewart family have been here in St. Joseph for a long time and a part of the South Coast Blues family from the beginning. No one can seem to wrap their head around this unspeakable tragedy, so we will push on as a community and be there 100% for these children. 

The support and wellbeing of the Stewart children, Regan, Reece and Kaden will be a top priority for the Blues program moving forward. Regan, Reece and Kaden have been a fixture in our baseball and softball community for years. Reece is a key member of the 9U Blues travel baseball team. Kaden plays an important role on the 8U Blues travel baseball team. Regan is also a strong player on the SJX travel softball team.

As a South Coast Blues family, we want to help support these children any way we can. Please consider donating to this campaign below. Thank you for all of your support and may God bless the Stewart children.

At the request of Go Fund me I would like to add a little more information. 

1. My name is Ashley Nelson, my husband Dane Nelson is the president of the South Coast Blues Baseball Club that both Stewart boys currently play for.

2. We are from St. Joseph, Michigan.

3. The funds being donated are strictly for the use of the Stewart children. The Bohn family has already set up trust funds for all three children. These funds will be deposited into those accounts.

4. Funds are set up to be withdrawn strictly by Kevin Bohn (Denise's brother) ONLY. 

Thank you again to all those who have donated and for those that continue to donate.

On behalf of Jim, Connie and the entire Bohn Family I would like to say thank you to all who have donated and those who continue to donate to the Stewart Children Support Fund. 42K+ is going to make a huge impact in the lives of the Stewart Children. It also shows the impact our community can have for the better. None of this would be possible with out everyone who has donated or even those who have simply shared our story. The Bohn Family are unable to put into words the gratitude they feel and they cannot thank you enough for your thoughtfulness during this tough time. Thank you for all the kindness, God Bless.

I am in awe of my community. Together in a little over 24 hours we have practically doubled our original goal of 10,000. Although no amount of money could ever equate the loss the Stewart children have endured our goal is to make life as simple and care free as possible for them. I want to give a heart felt thank you to our almost 300 donators and to all of those who have shared our page. None of this would be possible with out any of you!

I believe the goal should be set at a higher amount, Or no set amount at all, $25K For 3 childern won't last long...Especially at their ages now, And people are so willing to donate the amount so far has only been collected by 300 people, There are thousands more who will be donating...This is such a wonderful thing you are doing...Keep up the great work...And May God Bless You!

People magazine online wrote an article about Denise, so I posted a link to the Gofundme in the comments. Maybe you could try to contact them and ask them to mention the fundraiser in their post?

As we all go on with our busy lives, please let us NEVER forget this horrible, selfish violent act to our dear friend Denise who was ripped away from her three sweet children. Just try to imagine their anguish. Please don't stop donating to these three innocent victims of rage and violence.
