On the morning of Friday, 3rd of February 2017, a young mothers life has been tragically taken from her young family in heartbreaking circumstances. It had started like any other day in Brenton (29) and laces (28) household, dad off to work and mum bustling about with her daily choirs while getting the older kids ready for school. It was on the 35 minute journey along the gravel road to meet the school bus when lace was instantly killed in a single vehicle roll over.
Laces courage and strength as an individual could not have shown through anymore strongly in her eldest daughter (5) then on this fatal morning. Unclipping her younger siblings(4), (2 &2) from their car seats, helping them through a broken window and began the walk for home.
Lace was so much more then just a mother. She was a loving wife, sister and daughter. Lace touched so many lives and her bubbly caring spirit was something to admire. Her death has left so many stones unturned and questions unanswered.
The Bradford family have a long road ahead of them. Brenton is left with little idea on life ahead financially as his current living and working arrangements is an impossible task for a single father of four children given his remote location and job requirements. In an attempt to ease some of the financial burden, with funeral costs, household bills, a new car and caring for four children, I ask that if you have the means, please consider donating to this beautiful family. If you cannot afford to donate but wish to help, please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers and share this page.
Thank you all so much in advance
