A church van crashed into in a canal, killing eight people and injuring 10 on the early morning of March 30, 2015.

The van was heading back to church at Independent Haitian Assembly of God in Fort Pierce after a sunday night revival in Fort Meyers celebrating Palm Sunday.

My name is Dina Lexine Sarver and my father, Reverend Esperant Lexine was one of the 10  injured in this accident. Although he is unaware of the fatalities at the moment, providing a proper burial for our dear church members would be his only focus at this time. This campaign will go to fund the funeral arrangements of:

Volsaint Marsaille
Jude and Obernise Petite-Frere
Lifaite Lochard
Madeline Williams
Wanie Larose
Dazilla Joseph and
Servilus Dieudonne

We lost husbands, wives, mothers, grandmothers, grandfathers and sole providers. Please use this gofundme link and help as best as you can.

In addition to financial support we need prayers for everyone! As well as food and water for the hundreds of families who will gather at 1914 Orange Avenue nightly until the funeral service.

"We would love to have them with us, but God loves them more than we ever could."

Dory, we have a lot of our congregation members who travel to New Jersey. Once we get the final okay from the families we can do that.

I recognize at least three names among those who passed. Is there a website where photos of the deceased will be posted?
