The news of Sara’s brother’s son passing away is absolutely devastating. There are no words to describe the amount of pain and heartbreak they must be experiencing. It’s times like these that we can come together as a community and help our loved ones in need. Sara is taking the initiative to raise funds to cover the costs of Adam’s funeral and to support her brother and his wife during this difficult time.
