UPDATE: Visitation is today, October 13, from 8am to 8pm at Westhaven Memorial Funeral Home. The funeral will also be at Westhaven, on October 14 at 1pm.

Visit the funeral home website below for the address and driving directions.

UPDATE: The funeral will take place at 1pm Saturday, October 14 at Westhaven Memorial Funeral Home on Robinson Road in Jackson, MS. We have exceeded our goal and are no longer accepting GoFundMe donations. Thank you all for your help.

UPDATE: We have met our goal thanks to your generous support, but we still have people who would like to donate. Any funds raised extra will go to unforeseen funeral expenses and to LaShondra's sons DJ and Devin for additional assistance during this difficult time. The support has been amazing. Thank you!

LaShondra West, loving mother of two and best friend to so many of us, tragically passed away this week after going into ICU on Tuesday. The family is relying completely on donations to pay for her funeral expenses. This is one way all of us can help the family out during their time of need and give back to someone who did so much for others during her life.

LaShondra's two sons DJ and Devin and the rest of the family are going through a really hard time with this sudden and unforseen loss. Many of them have driven several hours to be with her during her last moments. I'm posting this GoFundMe campaign on direct behalf of her son, and all proceeds will go to the family.

My brother and I are disabled, and LaShondra worked as our caregiver for 12 years. She is family. We have laughed and cried together (mostly laughed), gone on vacation, gone to college classes, gone to work. We miss her so much and want to help spread the word to all those who loved LaShondra and would like to help out as well.

There is a lot to raise, and any amount helps, so if you can give any amount, please do. No matter how small you think it is, it is much needed and appreciated!
