To all my friends and family, and those of my dear departed sister,
My sister was killed Tuesday, May 14th by her husband who has a history of mental illness. Her two children lost both their parents in one day. We are broken, and shocked, and everyone is scrambling to try and handle this tragedy. I know Samantha touched many lives, and her two children have been the light of her life.
It is hard for me to ask for help. Our family doesn't have a lot, but we really want to be there to honor Samantha as she deserves. Please help her family handle the financial impact of this sudden loss, so we can ensure her family is present and a nice memorial is held.
We are raising money to cover travel expenses, the cremation (or burial), and the memorial. Any gift is valued and appreciated. Anything we are able to raise beyond the costs mentioned above will be given as a love offering to the two boys left behind to cover their needs and future.
With humility and love,
