Memorial funding for 5!

On Christmas day, we recieved unimaginable news.  5 of our precious relatives were found deceased in their home.  A grandmother, mother, and 3 children, all taken from us.  At the moment there are no details to share.  It's being investigated as a murder.   We haven't made arrangements yet.  We can't fathom the pain or the cost of laying 5 of us to rest at once.  We are devastated!  Many people have reach out, asking for family to make an account, so this is it.  This is the official GoFundMe me account for the Heflin/Patrick family of 5.  All funds donated by our community will go towards laying them to rest.  One of the little girls does have a paternal family, I've heard they may start a fund to raise money on her behalf.  I do not know that for certain but am only stating this for clarity.  If they raise money for the one that belongs to them, that's perfectly okay.  They need closure, and prayer and help through this too.  But as for the family as a whole, this is the GoFundMe account that was approved by the surviving family member that is forced to carry this burden.  We need the community to pray for peace, guidance,  wisdom, truth, and justice.  We need you to share this post.  And for anyone who can donate anything, big or small, we thank you tremendously for the outpouring of love.
