LANSING, Mich. — Just recently FOX 47 News has become aware that the family of Julie Ann (Hine) Mooney, one of the two women killed on Friday, has set up a GoFundMe page to support the family in funeral costs and to set up trust accounts for Julie's daughters. Below is a statement from the family:
In the shocking and untimely passing of our dear Julie, the family has set up this GoFundMe page to provide a place where the community can give in her memory. The support provided here by friends and family will go entirely to support her most precious gift in this world, Kaitlynne and Kinley, and their immediate and future needs.
All money raised from this GoFundMe will be split evenly in to three categories:
1. To help with immediate financial burdens on the family
2. Put in to a trust account for Kaitie, to receive when she is 18 years old
3. Put in to a trust account for Kinley, to receive when she is 18 years old
Julie gave openly of herself and her time, with a gracious and kind heart. And it shows by the overwhelming out pouring of love and kindness you have all shown our family over these unimaginable days.
Giving to this fund is by no means necessary, but having so many reach out to ask how they can help support the family during this time, we wanted to provide an option that would help now and for the girls later. This will be given to them as a gift from an entire community that wrapped their arms around them during their darkest hour to show only love and hope.
Again, we can't thank you enough for your kindness to our family and we continue to ask that you keep the memory of Julie in your heart and her vivid spirit alive in your life.
The Hine, Mooney, & Ward Families
