hello everyone! thank you for taking the time to visit our fundraiser page. this page is in place for support and prayers for the family of shirley lewis-mcfarlane. shirley was taken from us at the the at 53 while in jamaica. she had been visiting back and forth, from toronto, for years. it started when she fell in love with jamaica 14 years ago. she decided to move there recently and unfortunately that was where her life was ended. the person who did this, so brutally, to her still hasn't been found. shirley left behind her 3 children, shawn, amanda, and jasmine. they are all heartbroken and devastated. they are preparing for her to be flown back to canada where they can properly say goodbye to their best friend and mother. this is going to be a long hard road for them. both emotionally and financially. they will need all the help they can get. they are such a wonderful family, well mannered and always has a smile in their face. they learned this from their warm hearted, open armed mother who would do anything for anyone. even give the shirt off she back, even if she needed it. she raised her children to be just that! god-sends! so now it is time that we need to give back to this family, in this time of great need. i would like them to be able to mourn their mother and not have to worry about loosing hours at work. i want them to be able to fly their mother home and have a beautiful funeral for her. to have their closure. what we are asking for them is any sort of donation for them, to help them through. any amount is a great help and appreciated to the fullest. if you can not donate, your kind word are support enough. i would like to end with a sincere thank you and you don't know how much this means to shirley's children. please visit shirley's tribute group on facebook 'prayer and support for family and friends of shirley lewis-mcfarlane' thank you and god bless!
