So many of us struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts.

One of ours is lost to that struggle.

She would have turned 16 in a few weeks.

You may have met [livejournal.com profile] lee_hawk through blogs posted by her stepmother, [livejournal.com profile] shadowwolf13.  She might have crossed your LJ path via [livejournal.com profile] therealljidol

I only had the pleasure of meeting the young woman once, at Shadow's wedding several years ago to Lee's father.  She was poised. Beautiful. Quiet.  Young.  Too young to be suddenly gone.

Shadow has written a lovely tribute to her stepdaughter here: http://shadowwolf13.livejournal.com/1262195.html

Lee's family has put together a GoFundMe to help with funeral costs here: https://www.gofundme.com/ourtalesia

If you feel so moved, there's also a donation fund to Lee's favourite charity here:  https://www.gofundme.com/talesia-byrds-charity

...I want to be eloquent.  All I can bring myself to do is love the young women in my life even more than I already do.  So...go do that, y'all, and if you can help Lee's family, or boost the signals for these funds, that would be fantastic, too.  <3
