Sasha Richardson has been a member of the Las Cruces community for a few years now. Since meeting Sasha, friends have remarked on what a gifted and supportive person she is and how fortunate Las Cruceans and the NMSU community are to have her. Sasha and her mother were recently devastated by the news that her brother Ben took his own life on the 27th of December, 2016. Ben, like Sasha, was kind, clever, and funny. Sasha was very close to Ben and needs our support during this difficult time. Obviously, she will need to make an immediate and unexpected trip to her home state of Iowa. In addition, Sasha and her mother Nancy will be taking on many other of the expected and unexpected expenses associated with a death. Donations will serve to support Sasha and her family with these costs. Please help Sasha and her family with these expenses so they can focus on supporting each other and grieving for her brother Ben.
