In Memory of Delvonte Powell

47637400_1587766006108955_r.jpegMy friend Michell Williams is in the worst position a parent could ever be in. She is in the process of making funeral arrangements for her son Delvonte who was shot in Detroit this past weekend along with his cousin. Both of these young men were senselessly murdered. Taken from their families who are left to wonder why.
If you know Michell, you knew Del. He was an intelligent, caring young man who helped his mother with anything she asked. He loved his brothers and had friends who will tell you that he was the most loyal and true young man. 

We are asking for donations as she is hoping to have 2 memorial services for Delvonte. Most of their family is in Detroit, MI, but Delvonte grew up in Des Moines, IA so she would like to have a memorial service in both cities before he is laid to rest here in Des Moines. Also, her sons Devon and Demarco are currently incarcerated and in need of money to be able attend the service.
Please dig deep and help us celebrate this young man's life that was taken from us far too soon. Anything you can give will be a blessing to Michell and his 4 brothers.
