Remembering Leslie Spence& her wish

This week we suddenly lost of one of the most loving/passionate people we'have ever known, my oldest sister Leslie Spence.

It was Leslie's dream to ensure her babies go further in her education than she was able to.  With a heavy heart, I have set up this gofundme to honor and respect Leslie's wishes.

I set up 529 college funds for her children several years ago to help her fulfill her dream.  Leslie, unfortunatley,  did not leave behind any life insurance.  In lieu of flowers or other gifts, repectfully, we ask that you please donate to her kids future through this site.

The funds received from this account will ONLY go for the following in order of priority:
1) funding Katie and Matthew's Virginia 529 college accounts (minimum of $20k each)
2) helping to offset Mikel's student loans ($28k+) - (minimum of $20k)
3) paying off any of Leslie's outstanding debt

Myself and Kara are the financial stewards of the funds and will ensure they are appropriated to the aforementioned items in order of priority.

If you would like any futher information or questions, you can contact Brad Spence directly
