Funeral Expenses

Christian Hernandez, age 11, of Columbus, died Wednesday at the Columbus Community Hospital.

Please consider joining us to show love & support to  the Hernandez and Medbery families during this difficult time.  It is our hope that our community of friends and family will join with us in helping to raise money for funeral & medical expenses as this was an incredibly tragic, unexpected loss.  We want their family to be able to grieve and continue to put their money towards monthly expenses while the rest of us step in to help with what we can.  While flowers are always welcome, please consider showing your love and condolensces thru a financial gift.  Every little bit will help. 

I will be collecting the funds raised and will ensure that the money is used to cover what they have already paid for medical bills or other urgent matters.  As a mom myself,  I know we would all do whatever we could to help another mama in need.  This is our time to come together.  Let's lift this mama and her family up in prayer and show that we won't let another mama suffer alone. 

Thank you for considering a gift.
