Support Telma's and Emery Ohana

ALOHA… my name is Brian Emery and I am re-activating this old fundraiser that I created 5 years ago, for my Twin brother Kevin Emery and his daughter Makana Boinville Emery (my niece). the $105,939 was received over 5 years ago. With the cost of Makana's private schooling, therapy and life expenses here in Hawaii over the past 5 years, they really need help and support at this time. I first would like to say Thank You so much on behalf of Kevin, Makana and my family for everyone’s support, love, messages and prayers worldwide for Kevin and Makana as well as for the Emery and Boinville families during these difficult times. My brother is doing an amazing job raising Makana since the murder of Telma 5 years ago on the North Shore of Oahu. Kevin is such a beautiful and strong person with a heart of Gold and I love him and Makana unconditionally. Makana is an angel like her mother. She is so strong and we are all so proud of her and love her so much. I know Telma is so beyond proud of the young lady Makana is becoming. Kevin is having finical problems, but his heart is too big to ask anyone for help. No words could describe the pain and suffering as well as the challenges Kevin and Makana have dealt with in the last 5 years and are still dealing with daily. I only want to see Kevin and Makana heal and to see my brother not struggle so hard financially so he can focus 100% on Makana’s well-being. I am personally, from my heart asking you to please support them. If you are unable to donate, please continue to send prayers and please share this link on your social media. Thank you so much. He doesn’t know I am setting up this GoFundme account. As twins brothers and best friends, I know he needs financial help at this time. Kevin has been receiving thousands of messages on his Instagram account kevin_makana_emery this past week during the trials, which took 5 years to finally start. Kevin and Makana both had to testify. I was with Kevin and Makana and my family in a back room in the courthouse, No words could describe what I witnessed, Kevin and Makana had to relive the worse day of their lives. It was like pulling off the scab of a very deep wound for Makana. She had to testify as the key witness as when they brutally murdered her mother in the house, they then kidnapped Makana who was 8 years old at the time, out of the truck and carried Makana inside the vacation rental and tied up her hands and feet and tapped her mouth, and tied her to the bed. Now for some reason, there are 2 separate trials, Makana will need to now relive this yet again during mid-summer for the second trial. I am praying this fundraiser will allow Kevin to be able to focus on Makana full time until the next trials, and for him not to have to stress over working so hard as a single parent to pay bills and living expenses, as well as help get a vehicle as Kevin borrows my vehicle a lot as he doesn't have a reliable and safe vehicle. The amount of love, support and prayers Kevin has been receiving recently has touched his heart deeply. I was with him today on the beach praying and waiting for the verdict that took place today, on January 20th after a week and a half of court. Once he received the phone call that the guy was guilty of all charges, he broke into tears crying, he was so happy that after 5 years Telma as well as all of us, are finally receiving JUSTICE! Many News stations were calling wanting to ask if he was willing to make a statement. Kevin didn't want to talk, we spend time together as a family as Makana wanted to cook dinner with her grandma, Aunties and my daughter Nai'a. Sentencing will be this Monday, January 23rd. Kevin and our family will be there and Kevin will make a statement at that time. Please donate... ALL FUNDS will go directly to Kevin and Makana Emery!
