    I challenge everyone that has a healthy child to send some sort of a contribution to this family. You never get over losing a child but they also have another child that has lost a sister, a home and we as a community can make a difference.

    My son went to school with Summer at North Columbia Elementry before she transfered and he remembers her well and said that every one is real said and will miss her. Our family is praying that God helps you throught this time of need and we want you to know that you are not alone this a great community and we will all come together to support a fellow neighbor.

    My deepest sympathy to the family of this beautiful young girl. Tears were in my eyes when I heard the story. I am a mother and I know the love a parent has for their child/children. My family have you in our prayers and thoughts. Remember our Creator, our Heavenly Father can comfort you also. God bless and our heart goes out to the entire family.

    I called three local businesses that i patronize and i asked them to make a donation under their company name in memory of this child to the Harlem baptist Church. Please make a call to atleast one business that you support and let them know that that a need is in our area and you would challenge them to make a donation in their business name.
