Family and friends, on 6 September 2018, Gwen and Chris experienced the worst thing a parent can ever go through when their beloved little daughter tragically passed away. Gwen travelled to Zambia with 4 of their younger children to pay respects to her grandmother who died recently. While in Zambia Shiela unexpectedly fell ill. Despite best efforts to stabilise her and return her home to the UK, she sadly passed away. The family is broken. Shiela was a beautiful, easy going child who was adored by the family, especially her siblings who are trying to make sense of this loss. We are devasted!
The family is already overwhelmed by the support they are receiving, which they are really thankful for. After your numerous requests on how to assist the family, a Go Fund Me page has been set up on behalf of the family, for anyone who wishes to contribute financially. Arrangements are being made for Shiela to be repatriated to England. Monetary contributions of any amount will ease the financial burden on Gwen and Chris.
To Shiela, our hearts are bleeding, but we are grateful for the time we spent with you. You will forever be in our hearts. RIP our beautiful Angel.
