This Is Our Lilly She Was 11 Yrs Old

Our family is devastated. Lily’s little brother found her hanging in the garage. There are no words of solace that can repair the pain to our hearts right now. There was no warning and no signs. We are besides ourselves in grief. Her father will not leave the garage.

The “Maybe ifs...” and heart felt mia culpas are plenty. This nightmare is real. Parents are not supposed to bury their children. There won’t be any more birthdays, no more cheerful smiles, no more “Happy Hi!”, there won’t be a prom or graduation party. This pain is real. We still don’t know why this happened but the detectives suspect bullying.

The next few days will be the reason for this GoFundMe. This occurred so suddenly and unexpectedly. We never imagined this would happen to us. We need your help for a simple dress and funeral. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Her smile brightened every room. She was a super smart little girl. Loved her family. Absolutely loved big bulbed green onions on the grill with butter and garlic. She chose kindness always. She leaves behind her pittie Blue, her brothers Ayden and Makio, her sister Luna, and parents. We are struggling ever hour trying to put the pieces together. How did this happen?

Love and piece always,
The Soto Family
