Living Tributes For 3 Angels

I've never created a Go Fund Me before, so here's a first...

During my birthday month (October) I'm raising funds to purchase living tributes/memorials to honor my sister Kimberly (46), my nephew Solomon (5) and my niece Tova (3).

Please help me honor Kimberly, who with a masters in education and successful teaching career enjoyed most being a loving mom to two wonderful children.  For Solomon, who wanted to become a writer and a police officer and who loved PAW Patrol and The Avengers.  And for sweet Tova, who loved Sharkies and Dinosaurs and who gave the best hugs ever!

Though our family remains devastated by the horrific events of a month ago, doing something positive in their memory will lighten this burden.  I recently started by committing to purchase books for 3 local students in their names.  Next will be placing a living tribute memorial bench in our local park, and go from there...
