Tragic Death of Amberlee and Piper

Donation protected
On October 10, 2017 the world lost two beautiful beings.  Amberlee and Piper died in a tragic house fire in Nanaimo, BC.  

At this time, we are all searching for answers as to how this could've happened.  We ask for your understanding as we all endure this difficult time and navigate our way through together.  

We are asking for support to help fund a Celebration of Life for Amber and Piper.  There weren't any plans in place should such a tragedy occur, so monies raised will be used for funeral expenses. I will be withdrawing the donations and paying for the funeral expenses directly. Any extra monies will be left in trust to Ambers surviving sons, Benson and Adam. I will oversee setting up this trust fund.

For those of you who don't know me, I am Amberlee's first cousin on her mother Esther's side. I live on the mainland and saw Amber and Piper as often as I could. We grew up as siblings and were very close family, spending many summers together and always there for each other. My siblings and our close cousins/family, along with Ambers sons will be making arrangements.

A Celebration of Life is planned for Nov 5th, 3pm, at the Vancouver Island Conference Center, 101 Gordon St, Nanaimo, BC V9R 5J8.  

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support at this difficult time.
