Charese Garvin and Alayah Butler

Charese and Alayah were sadly taken from our lives at the young age of 28 and 23 months on the morning of Christmas, unfortunately Charese was also pregnant at the time of her death. The day that’s suppose to be filled with love and joy were unfortunately filled with sorrow and grief. Charese was a very loving and vibrant young lady who had a passion for children, she worked with children in the SSD and her children were her everything, she was always there for the people closest to her.  Charese’s best moments were spent around her immediate family and of course her children. Alayah was a sweet and happy baby with a touch of sass, she was a chunky baby who was known as Lay-Lay. Charese is survived by her two young children Tailse (6) and Tyrese (4) as well as her parents and loving family who now have to take care of her other children. 

This fund will go towards memorial costs  for both Charese and Alayah, also to help take care of her surviving children and to hopefully get them the grief counseling they will need since they were present during the deceased passing. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated while my family tries to heal from this great loss.
