Funeral, Burial, and Children

On October 4, 2020, Dedra and her best friend/sister KeKe were taken from us by a drunk driver. They were both so full of life.

Dedra leaves behind her 6 yr old daughter, Nelly, and a 2 month old son, Odin. She was a hard working, independent Mom. She was making a future to make her children's future better. She was going back to school Oct 7 to get her MA degree but was stopped from doing that by a careless individual.

Keke was a mother as well to a 6 yr old little girl Ki'Miyah. She is a little girl who is as shong as she can be. Keke was a hairstylist who could always get you looking your best. She specialized in wigs and braids and that was how she supported her daughter.

We could use everyones help in making sure that these girls are laid to rest. Anything left over will be split between the children. This isn't easy for any of us. They were 21 & 22yrs old. We never imagined doing this. Thank you for your time and contribution. Even if you can't help, please share and help us reach someone else who may be able to help.
