Tx bomb leaves 8yr old daughter w/o

I am the mother of Anthony Stephan House.  He was killed by an anonymous package bomb that was delivered to his front porch while preparing to take his 8-year-old daughter to school.  His whole purpose in life was to provide the best possible opportunities for his family to enjoy a fruitful, love-filled life. This unforeseen tragedy has left his dreams for his wife, who is a local school teacher, and his 8-year-old baby girl shattered, replaced only with heartbreaking uncertainty. Stephan loved his family.  He was a caring and devoted father. His death has left us all traumatized and devastated emotionally.  His daughter is now left fatherless. As a family, we are appreciative of the outpouring of support and benevolence from friends, family, neighbors, and strangers alike. Your selfless compassion has rekindled my faith in humanity. So many people and organizations have offered help and support that I have chosen this platform/portal to allow these caring persons to do as their hearts and faith compels them.  Your donations will be put into a secure trust for my granddaughter, to be used for her education and to assist in the process of rebuilding her life.  A fund in the name of the House family also has been initiated by friends to help the family. However, I was compelled to launch a fund specifically for Stephan's baby girl to help secure her future. I loved my son dearly and my only concern and purpose now is to protect and do all I can for my granddaughter.   Thank you all for your kindness and all the acts of generosity shown to our family during this time of need. I Am norrell waynewood and i have organized this campaign to assist in securing the future education and health of Anthony's daughter. Anthony House is my brother. Melonie house is my mother. Not biological though. I was in a home for troubled youth when stephan and i became fast friends. Once i met his mother she immediately took me as her son. The top portion of this letter is written by Melonie House , Anthony's mother who also is the beneficiary to the account. My niece can not be the direct beneficiary per Gofundne rules because if her age. That being said an education trust for lessons, tutors and post grade school education has been set up. .
