Kierra Phillips
9/23/2002 - 6/8/2020
During the evening of July 8, 2020, 17 year old Kierra Phillips was found dead in Texas. Today her family has gathered, tortured in knowing Kierra is gone without them having a chance to say goodbye. Financially this couldn't come at a worse time. COVID-19 has taken the jobs of both of Kierra's parents, leaving them with little to no income at the moment. Their small town in Texas has been hit hard economically and funds are tight for everyone. Yet the town is rallying, by organizing community car washes and other socially mindful events, to help provide Kierra the proper burial she so deserves. Kierra will be missed by everyone she came in contact with. From the teachers in her school, to the friends who sat beside her. From her fellow community members, to those she never met. Kierra was a beautiful soul and we will not allow him to take her memory from us. If you have anything to spare, please do so, for Kierra's funeral and for her devastated family. We appreciate each and every one of you, and we thank you on Kierra's behalf for giving her the dignified send-off she overwhelmingly deserves. All proceeds of this fundraiser will be delivered to Rita McQueen, Kierra's loving Grandmother, who is organizing Kierra's funeral with a local funeral home. Melissa Thurman is organizing this fundraiser. Melissa is Kierra's cousin and Rita's niece. Melissa lives in California and is helping the family from afar. All donations are welcomed and appreciated by Kierra's family and friends. Your thoughts, prayers and love is felt by them all. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Betty Lou Daniels
10/20/1954 - 6/15/2020
Betty Daniels had the biggest heart and the best laugh! She loved to dance and she loved to make people smile! This beautiful woman was taken from us way too soon. Unfortunately, Betty spent several years in the nursing home and there was no life insurance to help her husband with final expenses. The family decided to have her cremated and we hope to have a memorial service later. We are planning to take her ashes to be with her mother and her mother-in-law whom she loved dearly. Before we can make plans for that, her husband Curt needs help with the final expenses at the funeral home. I've set up this fund to go directly to the funeral home and we are asking that donations be sent to the funeral home in lieu of flowers. Please help him with the final expenses of $2200 so that we may take her ashes and respectfully hold a memorial in her honor.
