On the cold Thanksgiving morning Melanie (7), her mom, two brothers and grandmother was involved in a horrific car accident just a few miles from home. All passengers involved required immediate medical attention, leaving the grandmother in intensive care with head injuries and fractured ribs. The mother sustained a foot fracture requiring surgery with all three children injured as well.
Unfortunately, Melanie succumbed to her injuries en route to the hospital. This tragic incident has left the family devasted, while trying to accept the loss of such a vibrant and energetic angel.
Melanie, loved to sing and dance to her favorite artist, Alecia Keys. Her infectious smile and high angelic voice will forever remain etched in our hearts, for thanksgiving will never be the same.
We ask for your prayers and support as the mother, grandmother and Melanies 3 sibling ( Travis, Jaequan and McKenzie) heal from this ordeal. All monies donated will be given to assist with funeral, burial and other expenses.
The mother (Ericka), thanks the bystanders who responded to the accident, pulling the children and family out of the car and keeping them warm prior to medial help arriving.
