Friends, family & neighbors I first want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart, for helping raise money for this family. It truly amazes me. With that being said, I have named Tim Fuller the beneficiary of this account. He is the grandfather of Alyssa Hearn who tragically lost her life in an accident. Tim is the father of Katie Fuller (Alyssa Hearn's mother). Tim will be giving Katie this money to help with funeral costs & daily expenses as she needs to take this time to mourn the loss of her daughter. Katie is a single mother with 2 other children Kyle Hearn (9) MJ (1). Thank you so much for all the love and support shown to this family you have no idea what it means to them and this community. #springvillestrong

It saddens my heart to read nasty comments some people have posted questioning the why's behind this go fund me page. For those of you who continue to ask why the goal has been raised is simple. It keeps being raised because if you exceed the goal amount go fund me takes a bigger percentage that has been raised. I never in a million years thought I would have to raise the goal daily. But this community comes together and has donated more then $47,000 for a family with 5 children. They have medical, funeral, home expenses to start with. That doesn't include all of the holidays birthdays and other expenses that are going to be coming. This family not only lost a child but a mother witnessed her little girl die. She will never be able to walk into her place of work again. This family needs time to mourn without the worry or stress of money. This is just a start to a very long road ahead of them all. This community will continue to stand by them today, tomorrow, years from now. So if you need to still ask any questions on "why" please don't. Have respect and a heart for this family. You will never know the pain they are going through.

Thank you to all of you. I am beyond overwhelmed with all of the love, support and donations this community has raised. Tomorrow November 6 at 1pm we will be holding a vigil at the Springville high school in honor of Alyssa. A balloon release and candle will be provided for all joining. We are so grateful for the support you are showing. #SpringvilleStrong

Our thoughts and prayers go to the Fuller family. Losing a child changes you and your heart may never recover from a loss so severe. We can only hope you will find peace through all this, in God and yourself.

This campaign began with a goal of $5000. That amount was achieved in one hour. The goal amount is increased because the outpouring has been so incredible - there is no concrete "goal", nothing to pay for because you can't buy piece of mind for a distraught mother or pay to bring a child back. Whatever the overall amount is will still fall desperately short unfortunately. Our children's lives are priceless. And if anyone is questioning the legitimacy of this campaign, I assure you a quick google search will ease your mind. The majority of these donations have come from a small, rural community of 5,000 people. We absolutely know them personally, and we hurt for them. Anyone who doesn't see that shouldn't feel compelled to give because we will continue doing all we can for this family in their time of need.

Nobody is actually being double charged, it's just a glitch. This happens on many go fund me pages & this is the second campaign where my own donation has appeared twice, but I've only ever been charged once. & shame on anyone who is questioning why the goal keeps being increased. Here's a thought...maybe the goal increases as the community's generosity increases, as we rally together to provide faith, hope, & love to a family in need. Nobody could have predicted this incredibly overwhelming outpouring of support, but the bottom line is that no goal amount is too high for this family. Keep donating people!

First of all Bill (and any of the other uncompassionant busybodies that have left unkind remarks). I'm not sure it's any of your business why the goal was increased. If you still are curious I'm pretty sure the comments already posted will answer your question if you actually read them all. My personal opinion is that the people who are giving are giving without a single care as to how this family will use it. I know from first hand experience when my son died that no amount of money will take away the pain and loss. For every birthday, every holiday , every graduation, wedding , every ordinary day a little piece of them will be missing. Forever. It NEVER goes away. I don't care if they need time off from work , college money for her siblings , memorials ...whatever they choose is for them to decide. I don't care if they take the entire family to Disney World. It will never make it better. And by the way, the family had nothing to do with this fund. It was a beautiful family friend who recognized a need not only for the family itself but also for the community to at least be able to do something. And her wording was perfect. It's to allow them some time to try to heal, in whatever way they can.

The money will enable these parents to spend needed time with their other children as they all go through the grieving process, without having to worry about lost income from their jobs. I don't begrudge them one cent of what this fund raises.

So sad that folks try and minimize what Springville is trying to do as a community for this poor family by posting heartless "fraud" alerts. Better than warning against something you know nothing about, give us the benefit of the doubt rather of tainting the outpouring of love that is apparent herein.
