Tragic Death of Amberlee and Piper

$13,322 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 149 people in 14 months
On October 10, 2017 the world lost two beautiful beings.  Amberlee and Piper died in a tragic house fire in Nanaimo, BC.  



At this time, we are all searching for answers as to how this could've happened.  We ask for your understanding as we all endure this difficult time and navigate our way through together.  

We are asking for support to help fund a Celebration of Life for Amber and Piper.  There weren't any plans in place should such a tragedy occur, so monies raised will be used for funeral expenses. I will be withdrawing the donations and paying for the funeral expenses directly. Any extra monies will be left in trust to Ambers surviving sons, Benson and Adam. I will oversee setting up this trust fund.

For those of you who don't know me, I am Amberlee's first cousin on her mother Esther's side. I live on the mainland and saw Amber and Piper as often as I could. We grew up as siblings and were very close family, spending many summers together and always there for each other. My siblings and our close cousins/family, along with Ambers sons will be making arrangements.

A Celebration of Life is planned for Nov 5th, 3pm, at the Vancouver Island Conference Center, 101 Gordon St, Nanaimo, BC V9R 5J8.  



Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support at this difficult time.

DATE CHANGED!! NOV 5th.

Hello Everyone,

Thank you all for your patience as we work on arranging the memorial service for Amber and Piper.

We have tried our best to accommodate extended family and friends who will be traveling great distances to be with us.

The service will be held on November 5th in Nanaimo.
Location and time are TBD but we will post as soon as details are confirmed.

Please let us know if you will be able to join us to celebrate these two beautiful angels.

We know some people had already booked their travel based on a tentative date set out earlier and we are sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused.

We have set up a booking through Coast Bastion Hotel for a special rate. This rate is good from Fri/Sat/Sun.
Please call 1-800-663-1144 and quote
CBI-GFC17559 for the rate.

Amber and Piper touched so many lives. So many communities. We are all blown away by your support as we go through the motions together.

There has been some questioning as to why we are not including Jason in our family service. While all three deaths were very tragic, we are continuing to support our family only at this time. Jason's family will be holding a separate memorial for him and Piper this weekend, Oct 21. At this time, I do not know any more details.

Thank you all again for your continued support and patience. We can never prepare ourselves for a loss of this magnitude and we are all doing our best to lean on one another. So much love to all of you. xoxo
