Cory Ehlers children need your help

$15,016 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 164 people in 4 months
On Monday March 12, 2018 Cory Ann Ehlers’ life was taken by the man who promised to love her forever.  This is a tragic loss to her four children, parents, siblings and to everyone she ever met.  She was an active parent at Brooklands Elementary School in Rochester Hills and a long-time staff member at Camp Ticonderoga in Troy. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, friend and person.  She sparkled.   

Cory has 4 children, Joshua (23), Jonathan (14), Alyvia (9) and Nathan (8). They are now without parents and have long rough road ahead.  This is something that no child should ever have to deal with.

Cory had an amazing heart, she loved everyone she met and would have given her last dollar to help anyone, even when she had nothing to give.  Her positive attitude and openness allowed her to be instant best friends with everyone she met.  When she hugged you, she really hugged you, a crushing hug that would make you feel loved and accepted, no matter what. 

To quote our family friends John and Paul (Lennon and McCartney); “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”  Cory gave love to everyone, we were all given unconditional love every time we were in her presence.

Her children need our help, they all have a lot of healing to do with the loss of both their parents.  Your donation will go to create a trust for Cory’s children, to help them with this tragic and senseless death of their mother.  Please help us help them.

Thank you from Josh, Christy, Casey, Murphy, David, Jacqueline, Garren and Thomas Richards Charity.

Happy Easter to all and their families..
Tomorrow is going to be a rough day for myself and my Camp Ticonderoga Family. This will be the first Holiday working without Cory Ehlers that I can remember. Sometimes I would replace her in the evening or we would work together through the night. We would serve all these families their easter dinners.
eWith Easter being such a family day it makes it sad to know that Cory's children are going to be without their mother.
So I am asking all of my friends and family to help Cory's children tomorrow on Easter by going to our GoFundMe.com/cory-ehlers page and donate whatever you can and show these kids how much we loved their mother.
Thank you
