 LAGRANGE, OH
My name is Alyssa Stechow, I am a cousin of Emily Ann Young. Emily was shot and killed by her soon to be ex husband on January 7th. She is leaving behind a 2 year old and 6 month old identical twin girls. I know it is a lot to ask for, but we need to help the Young family during this awful time. LaReece Woods ended my cousins life and robbed THEIR children of a mother. Please share and help Emily's family during this time. This is not just for funeral expenses, this is also a fund for her 3 young daughters. I know it is a lot, but I am very very hopeful. Help this family and, these poor babies. ❤️ Thank you all. This is NOT just for funeral expenses, these little girls' lives have been forever changed by this, they need our help!!!! My ultimate goal is to reach 500k but I'm doing it in increments for now. Thank you all

Thank you to everyone who has donated/supported/prayed for my family during this time. I am setting a short term (temporary) goal of 25k, and increase to 50k, 75k, and so on. This fund is not only for the girls, but for Debbie and Jim to use as they need to appropriately help support their family. Thank you all again for everything you've done so far, we are overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity.

please consider ohio victims of crime application for the children (a legal guardian will need to fill it out for them) The State will assist, if not pay for funeral expenses, lost wages, hospital bills and misc. expenses for the children. please feel free to contact me via facebook if you would like help with this or need more information regarding the application process. God Bless you and your family. Praying for you.

I have a TON of baby stuff that I no longer need. Is there a way to find out what these babies need and get it to them? I'm happy to help any way I can and I know there are a lot of other mommies that would too.
