Sophia's Funeral & Family Expenses

"A grieving parent wakes up each morning knowing that tears will accompany them and drive them to their knees.  

And when they are down, they simply need someone to understand and help them back up again."

We've set up this account to assist the family during this tragic time. Finances need not be on their mind.

Sophia passed away undexpectedly this morning October 14, 2014.  No parent should have to awaken to find their baby is no longer with them.

Sophia turned 2 on September 26th.  She was a beautiful, vibrant little girl.  She loved to play tea party, feed her baby sister, and was quite the diva like her big sister.  She was always so happy despite her lack of communication skills.  Sophia was currently learning sign language and taking speech. 

The family has 3 other children D'Andra  (6), Joey Jr. ( 3), and Ciara  (4 months). The last few months have been hard on the family.  There were complications with the pregnancy, birth and first few weeks of baby Ciara's life.  They recently purchased their first home, only for Dad (Joey) to be layed off a few months later.   Mom (Alisha) is an amazing caregiver to the family.  Alisha has a full plate between taking D'Andra and Lil Joey to and from school, speech with Sophia and doctor's appointments for baby Ciara along with the demands of having a new baby in the house.
