Hello, my name is Gio and I’m raising money on behalf of the Ising’s over the loss of their daughter Sarah. Sarah was a bright and happy soul that gave light to everyone she came in contact with. She’s had a passion for volleyball from a young age and as a member of the community that helped shape who she is, it would be great if it gave back to her family in this time of need. All of the proceeds and donations will be going to her father, Ralph Ising, and her family to help them through this difficult time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The funeral arrangement is currently pending.
