Bernell Tramell's Life Matters As Well

Bernell Trammell was a well known figure in his predominantly black neighborhood. He was regarded as a loving and peaceful character who ran eXpressions journal, a blog that focused on religion and politics.  These messages spilled out onto the signs Bernell would carry in the streets where he would encourage open speech and debate about both. He supported diverse causes ranging from Black Lives Matter to President Trump's re-election.
Bernell was shot down in cold blood right in front of the building he worked from for reasons yet to be determined.  
This is a black life that matters and yet when I looked for the Go Fund Me, there was none. I was utterly shocked. This man was a man of God, peace, the Constitution. Bernell Trammell deserves a decent burial. He had no one left to do this last duty to a loving man who is certainly worthy of it.

I'm just a woman in a small town called Ocklawaha in Florida and my name is April Sanford. I didn't know Bernell; I saw a video abot his murder on YouTube and felt compelled to do this. Which I have never done before, 
I'm in touch with a close friend of his in Milwaukee and he is going to help me get the donations to the proper place.
