My name is Lucretia Wilson, and on behalf of the Coker family, we are reaching out to those touched by Lionel "Bam" and Ja'Sel. We need everyone's help in raising funds to give these two beautiful people the memorial service they deserve. This family recently faced an unimaginable tragedy, which has been covered in the news.
These two precious family members were taken away from us way too soon and in a way that no one deserves. Lionel "Bam" Coker was a loving father, brother, grandfather, uncle....you name it, Bam was it! Bam would give you the shirt off his back and cook the last bit of food that he had if you needed it. He met no stranger and always had a smile on his face. Ja'Sel was a very outgoing three-year-old that lived life to the fullest. Close friends and family knew her as Butt-Butt, and her joyful smile and laughter will remain in our hearts and minds every single day.
The unfortunate passing of Bam and Ja'Sel came very unexpectedly and the family was not prepared financially for the expenses related to covering two funerals. Please help with a donation, as it will help lighten the financial and emotional burden associated with this tragedy. This GoFundMe will not change what happened, but it can change the family's ability to cope with the situation. We are devasted emotionally at this time and mourning the loss of these family members. All proceeds will be used to cover the funeral expenses for Bam and Ja'Sel.
We are grateful for everyone's thoughts and prayers in this difficult time. Even if you cannot donate, we would appreciate sharing this with others who know Bam and Ja'Sel.
