Sherri's Loved Ones

**2/4/18 UPDATE**

As I wrote in my latest update (pictures too!), the state of AZ has finally allowed Maddie and Max to move to WI to join the family that stepped up months ago to take them in. All money donated from here on out goes directly to their new family to help with those little and not-so-little expenses (braces, college...) that go hand-in-hand with raising happy and healthy kiddos. Thank you!


The world recently lost a wonderful mom and human being. My cousin, Sherri Mae (Springhuth) Ponsati, died tragically on September 7 in Gilbert, AZ at the young age of 33.

Sherri was a devoted mom with two small children that were her everything: Max, her curious ever-in-motion one-year-old son, and Maddie, her precocious six-year-old daughter.

If you are able to help financially support Sherri's family as they grapple with the unexpected expenses that come with bereavement, childcare, and securing her children's well being, please consider making a small donation to the GoFundMe account I have set up in her honor.

It takes a village.

With deepest gratitude and love. Thank you.
