We need your help!

Hello! It is with a heavy heart that I am even creating this account. Yesterday February 9, 2023 tragedy struck our family in a way we never expected. Not only did it strike our family it struck Grand Rapids as a whole. Sharika was 32 years old with 3 beautiful children, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a daughter, a friend and so much more. February 9th, 2023 Sharika was taken from us and tragically killed, being hit by 2 cars on her way to work just before 7:30 am.

Sharika left the house thinking she was taking care of business for her family (as she was), she left the house, believing she would be back with her children after her work shift, she left the house as any other normal person, but she will never return in the arms of her children, in the arms of her family, or in community with her friends and those who loved her so deeply.

Sharika was just getting everything to line up in her life, she had goals and she was knocking them down one after the other. She was determined! But she was SUDDENLY taken away from us! Her children needed her, and her family needed her, but now we need help from YOU!

We want to give Sharika a proper burial but we need your help. Not only do we need help with funeral costs, but we also need help providing for her children that are now left without a mother. PLEASE consider donating, no amount is too big or small. We are praying and hoping to reach our goal by Wednesday, February 15, 2023, and we know that we can do it with your help! Below I am pasting the article created by Wood TV 8 and I am also putting the ages and sizes of her children with the hope that you will partner with us in going over and beyond for her children. We thank you in advance for your generosity and pray that God blesses you beyond!

Son: 11 years old- Men XL
Daughter: 8 years old- 14/16
