Lyric Elaine, Lura & Rick. Also Cali Rose Memorial

On Wednesday, July 15th 2020, Lura and Ricky headed to the hospital in premature labor at 22 weeks for the birth of their twin daughters, Cali Rose and Lyric Elaine. While they attempted to stop the labor because of the premature nature, our little angels came into this world around 8:00PM that evening. 

They were born crying and breathing on their own. The amazing staff of doctors and nurses went to work on them immediately. However, after only 1 day of fighting with all she had, unfortunately our little Cali Rose was called home with to be with our Lord and became Lyric Elaine’s guardian angel. Now with the help of her angel sister and unlimited prayers from all over the world, little Lyric is continuing to fight for her life. 

We are all keeping positive energy and focusing all of our attention on Lyric. Lura and Ricky continue to need our thoughts, prayers and positive energy to see this beautiful family through. 

Over the last few days, so many of you have reached out and asked if you could send funds to help this family. We were honestly taken back, while still in shock and processing what had happened ourselves. But we quickly realized creating this space to collect your donations was something we needed to do. Unfortunately, the medical bills are going to be exorbitant, and your donations will be incredibly helpful to offset those expenses. 

Thank you all so much again for your continued thoughts, prayers and support. God bless you all!
