I spoke to one of my sisters friends last night. My worst fears for her were confirmed. My sister had been living in a domestic violence situation. I hate knowing for certain that my sister lived her last days and weeks in terror. My heart is breaking both for the loss of my beautiful and talented sister but also because life has beaten and battered my sister at every turn. She has missed out on so much of life, 38 is way too young to die. But she also leaves behind four beautiful children, all adopted away including my own sweet Kwame. They will never get to know the incredible woman she was. I want peace for my sister and got all my family to be able to get together and support each other and celebrate the good parts of her life. I wish I had enough money to finance all the final expenses but I do not. I hate to keep asking for money. We as a family are still asking for donations any donation can help. Please also share this post if you can.
Our sister Yolande Johnson passed away unexpectedly on September 13, 2014. Leaving the family with a financial hardship. We are asking for donations of any size to help the family with her final expenses.
