Memorial Fund for Baby Jay

$20,330 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 472 people in 17 months
On the morning of Saturday January 6th my little sister Liz was shot and killed by her ex-boyfriend/father to her child. That morning our sweet baby Jay lost his mother. In this tragic turn of events my mom is taken by not only overwhelming grief but is now taking guardianship of Jay as she’s basically played the role as co-parent for the entirety of his life. Anyone that knows my mom knows that she is one of the most loving, compassionate, selfless, and among the strongestest people you could ever meet, and I thank god every day for her. Right now we are struggling with planning a future and covering expenses for Jay while also figuring out how to fund my little sisters funeral. Please don’t feel obligated to donate but if you are able to it means the world to us and ANY amount helps. Thanks so much and feel free to contact me, Matt Richards, on my Facebook for any questions or to send loving words for my mom.

*OVERDUE UPDATE* Thanks to the overwhelming support we were able to fund Liz's funeral as well as cover some of the lawyer costs for custody. At the moment any further donations go to catching up on lawyer fees, Jays college fund, and help immensely with cost of living expenses. From the bottom of my heart - To every single one of you wonderful people that came together for my mom and I, donated, offered support, we will never have the right words to show how grateful we are. Thank you all so much.
