Family of 1 of 3 teens killed in tragic crash

I am a friend of the family and am starting this to support them financially with the expenses of the untimely and tragic loss of their daughter, granddaughter and sister.
Samara was an exceptionally kind, smart, funny, selfless  and responsible young lady. She graduated a year early with honors and had plans to become a marine biologist. She worked two part time jobs and was saving money for her education. Her parents couldn't have asked for a better daughter.

Samara was very close to all her family members and valued the time she spent with them and made sure they were first in everything. Secondly, came all her friendships which meant the world to her. 

She is survived by her father Mike, mother Dawn, stepmother Leah, sister Paige and brother Hunter, grandfather Richard and grandmother Renee. 

This family has enough sadness and grief that any additional stress of expenses would be too overwhelming. My hope is to raise enough money to cover her funeral and expenses. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you are not in a position to financially support them, please share this.
