Cheyne, We wish for one more day with you...

We wish we didn’t have to create this fund.  It would mean that Cheyne would still be here, and we would hear his voice, see him running around and hear him giving his three little sisters and cousins a hard time as always!

Cheyne was so proud of who he was as a Samoan King.  His aunts and uncles always knew he was destined for greatness.  He had such an infectious laugh and could make anyone smile with his joking ways.  Cheyne always brought joy and happiness to his mother and father and they will forever miss him. 

It’s as if his life had just begun.  He was a 2020 graduate of Seventy First High School and had big plans for his life!  He always wanted to be a licensed mechanic and was currently working towards that goal, but with a tragic accident on September 20, 2020, Cheyne, went on to be with our Lord and Savior.

As we process this horrible news, the question has already been frequently asked, “Is there anything I can do?”

First and Foremost, keeping us in your prayers is the most important way to be of support but if you find it in your heart, another way to support is to donate to this fund. 

It is hard enough for the Sappa’s (paternal) and Russel’s (maternal) family to mourn the loss of their son (brother, cousin, grandchild) together, we can ease the financial burden of medical, memorial and funeral costs.

Your donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all.

Psalm 73:26 ESV
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Sunrise April 21st, 2001-Sunset September 20th, 2020.
