Support for Mom of Sophia & Sara

$36,678 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 459 people in 17 months
Created January 1, 2018
UPDATE (1/9/18):

Peace and blessings be upon you all,

On behalf of Amy and her family, we want to thank everyone for their outpouring support, donations, thoughts, and prayers during this difficult time. It just goes to show how much of an impact Sophia and Sara have had in all of our lives and how loved they were.

We originally started this GoFundMe as a way to raise funds for the funeral/burial expenses of Sophia and Sara. We raised that amount of money quickly due to everyone coming together at a time of need.

Now we want to focus all our love and support to Amy. As some of you may know, she is a preschool teacher at Caring Connections. Teaching and taking care of children is something that she loves to do, but we know that at this time, she needs to take time off to heal.

We are raising the goal to $50,000 so that she can at least take one year off of work if she needs to, and use that time to truly focus on herself, heal her heart, and look to the future.

This will be the last official update on GoFundMe, but please like or visit our Facebook page to post any more memories of Sophie and Sara that you may have.

Thank you all for the love and support you have shown. May we continue to come together as a community, just like what Sophia and Sara would have wanted.

Peace be upon you all,

A horrible tragedy struck our community on New Year's Eve.

Sophia and Sara were an active part of our community and were loved by many.   They were both so kind and funny and touched so many hearts.  Sara wanted to be a mathematician for NASA and Sophie wanted to be a scientist and travel the world. They were both so passionate about feeding the homeless. Our heart breaks for them and their family, and we are all mourning their loss.

Because of everyone's help, we have raised enough for the funeral/burial expenses for the girls.  Now we want to support Amy for as long as we can.  She is a preschool teacher and will be taking time off work in order to grieve. Any donations will help take some of that burden off of her and help her focus solely on healing. 

May God give their family patience and strength, and grant the girls the highest level of paradise.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you for your help.
