Fighting for Erlana's Final Wishes

As a family we're trying to raise money in support of our daughter, Leah due to the sudden and tragic loss of her partner, Erlana Rutherford to suicide on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

We're looking for financial support to help Leah honor Erlana's final wishes. Your generosity will go towards attorney fees, memorial fees and any associated costs of living for her until there is a resolution, to this horrible situation which is unknown at this time.

So many were touched by Erlana's life and know the love they shared with each other.  Their future has come to such an abrupt end that we are at a loss and looking for any amount of support you can donate at this time.

As her family we are uncertain of the cost that will be associated with this time consuming process ahead of us. We will continue forward to  uphold  Erlana's wishes, but that will only be possible with your support. Thank you for your love and generosity during this painful time. 

Erlana you will always be in our hearts, thank you for loving our daughter. God Bless you and rest in Peace till we meet again.

Love Always,

Tim and Michelle
