A Lubbock family needs help after the passing of their young daughter. Four-year-old Heavenly Sanders passed away Friday after a jump rope became tangled around her neck earlier in the week. The central Lubbock toddler was taken to UMC Thursday in critical condition. She eventually passed away Friday morning. The sudden loss of the child has put both a financial and emotional strain on the family.

(if you want I can include your quote) A close relative of the Sanders family expressed the terrible sadness and tragedy of losing the young child “Heavenly was such a precious little girl that brought so much joy to everyone's life, so to imagine that she is no longer here is extremely difficult.”

Her family needs aid in paying for funeral costs. Donations can be made at Plains Capitol Bank to the Heavenly Sanders Memorial Fund. Family says any size donation, even one dollar, will help immensely in laying Heavenly to rest.
