A memorial donation for Elisha Pereira

Donation protected

Hi, My name is Bayne Richardson and today I have created a GoFundMe page for my Aunt Elisha. First I would like to take the time to acknowledge you for reading this, Thank you. Elisha Pereira was found dead on November 14th, 2021 she was 31 years old and turning 32 on November 29th. Elisha's brother Kraig Pereira my dad had been helping her with sobriety. After months of sobriety, Elisha relapsed, like so many others. And like so many others, Elisha lost her life.
Elisha was so proud of herself and for moving in such a positive direction. She was following her care plan and never missed an appointment. She was making plans to see her son. She was working two part-time jobs and talked of her aspirations for the future.
We were all so proud and thankful she was safe! But she wasn’t. She was NOT safe! The sneaky devil that is Addiction, sat in the corner and patiently waited for our eyes to be off her, for just a moment, and at that moment Addiction jumped on our beautiful, sweet girl and swallowed her forever.
In the last two years Elisha, Brandon, and Kraig have lost many but most importantly they lost both their parents to cancer.
Elisha was an actual ray of sunshine in human form. Her mom always called her the energizer bunny. Elisha was excited about e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g !! There are so many who love her and will grieve her but her son and her two brothers will be most deeply affected. Elisha deserved so much more than this life gave her, anything and everything is appreciated during this time. Donations will be for Elisha's memorial and the expenses around that. Thank you again for taking the time. May Elisha rest easy.
