Funeral expense Esther, Christopher & Shayla

The sudden and unexpected deaths of my sister Esther and her dear children Christopher and Shayla have stunned all of us that loved them. In a time when the unthinkable happens, many of us do not have  the means to cover such a massive expense.

 I am asking a favor from my friends, if you have it in your  heart to help my sister’s kids’ family with the unplanned expense of laying them  to rest in a dignified manner. Esther and her children are not a family of means for such a tragedy so there’s not much in the way of extra funds. 

I don’t ask people for money and never would if it wasn’t absolutely necessary. You have all blessed us all day long reaching out with beautiful messages of comfort and we can’t thank you enough. The kids’  father’s side of the family is doing all the planning for the services as you all know I live in Florida. The least I can do is ask my friends and hopefully friends of friends for any size of donation and we will send to the funeral home to help as much as we can. 

Thank you in advance for all your love, you have meant so much to us all!

All donations will be paid directly to Peterson Brothers Funeral Home in Willmar, MN. The funeral director is doing everything he can to keep everything as low as possible as well.

With all my gratitude,
Rachel Peters Goldsby
