Donation protected

My name is Brandy Tarin. It is with heavy hearts that i have to be on here today making this gofoundme page. My older sister Sommer Kelly age 40 was murdered today Jan. 30, 2024. Sommer's eldest daughter my niece which is 18 years old was also shot 3 times after trying to interfere and help her mom and now is being treated at Loma Linda Truma Center. Sommer leaves behind 4 children one who is autistic. 3 of the children where in the home and witnesses this horrible tragedy. This evil monster had the intention to kill all 3 children in the home. Before this nightmare began he borded up all the doors so no one could get out. He shot my niece and thought she was died because she dropped to the floor and played died. Then went to my other niece room but she had locked the door and was screaming no please no so he said "I guess I'll let you live". And the last child my nephew that is autistic. He told him he'll "let him live to tell the story"! I could NEVER imagine going thru this nightmare and now my nieces and nephew have to play it over in there minds every second! These poor babies did not deserve this! My beautiful sister did NOT deserve this!! Our family is forever broken! My mother is morning the loss of her oldest daughter so im trying my best to help her out. My mother is 65 on SSI and will now need to take Guardianship of the three younger children. No mother should EVER have to bury their own children. And to know this evil monster is still out there is scary for all of us! Im reaching out to anyone and everyone that can help make things some what easier as we go thru the next few weeks in putting my sister to rest and making sure all the children are safe and comfortable! We appreciate any help given. Thank you all so much!
