Funeral planned for five children killed in Tiffin fire
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 10:10:00 GMT —
Visitation is planned Wednesday evening in Tiffin, where community members are raising money to help the children's mother,
, pay for funeral expenses and replace belongings lost in the fire. The funeral is scheduled for Thursday morning.
It will be followed by burial for the four girls: 6-year-old Tiara Angel, 5-year-old Stormie Huey, 4-year-old Trinity Huey and 3-year-old Sunshine Huey.
Sam Ramirez, the great-uncle of the children, described what the kids were like. He says, "They were always happy and smiling. They always helped each other out and stuck together. When they played games they always shared. They didn't have a lot but they were always happy."
Published obituaries indicate the youngest victim, Domonic Fresch, who was almost 2, will be buried later with his father, who died in the Sunday morning fire. A family spokesman identified that man as 25-year-old Tim Fresch of Tiffin.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Anna Angel Donation Fund, c/o US Bank, 730 West Market, Tiffin, Ohio 44883.
A fundraising account, through Go Fund Me, has also been set up by the great-aunt of one of the girls.
The family of Fresch and his son have set up a online fundraiser at giveforward.com to help pay for funeral costs.
