UPDATE: I want to thank everyone for your love, support and donations towards helping Nicole and her family during these terrible losses. Your generosity has helped ease some of the burdens that is currently weighing heavily on them all. In full transparency, I want to let you all know that I'm transferring the gofundme beneficiary to Amy Wallawine rather than Nicole. Amy is Nicole's sister and at the request of Nicole has agreed to manage the finances regarding the wreck, funerals, etc. As you can imagine Nicole has her hands full being in the hospital with Maddox and she's still healing herself. Thankfully she and Amy are very close. Amy will be making sure the expenses for Nicole, Justin, Chelsea and Maddox are covered and will also be managing the share of funds to be used to cover expenses for Michaela. I didn't want there to be any confusion as to why Amy shows as the beneficiary of the funds rather than Nicole. Again, thank you all for your support and kindness. Nicole and Maddox have a very long road ahead of them so all the support they get is incredibly appreciated. Please continue to keep the entire family in your prayers.
Nikki (Nicole) & Justin Poole have been sweethearts forever. They're both some of the kindest, most caring people you could ever meet. They were a perfect family of four but tragedy struck the early morning of 3/16/23 when they were traveling over I-90. They were involved in a horrendous car accident when a semi-truck left his side of the highway, traveled over the median & into oncoming traffic crushing Nikki & Justin's car. Tragically Justin Poole age 40, Chelsea Poole age 10 and Nikki's cousin Michaela age 27 were killed in the accident. Nikki & Maddox survived & are currently in Harborview Hospital. 6-year-old Maddox is intubated & underwent brain surgery this morning. I can not think of a more terrible nightmare to live through. My heart is broken over this loss & crushed imagining the kind of pain Nikki is enduring right now. Justin was a kind, funny man who deeply loved his family. Chelsea was a beautiful, sweet little girl full of life & they will be missed beyond compare along with Michaela. Nikki needs as much support as she can possibly get right now! Please donate to help with funeral expenses & medical bills. Nothing will bring her family back but if we can ease her stress even a little financially at least that's something to take a little of the weight off her shoulders. I wish I had more poignant words to describe this amazing family. If you knew them, you loved them. Please help.
