(Gofundme) Memorial Fund For Dalancea “Armoni” Cox
“We are devastated to announce that on September 17th, Dalancea “Armoni” Cox passed unexpectedly due to a car accident. All of her family and friends are extremely shocked and heartbroken by this sudden loss. If you knew Dalancea, you knew that she was an amazing person. She was a very bubbly person with a big heart and just a joyful person to be around. Many of you may know that Dalancea lost her own mother at a very early age and was raised by her grandmother. This tragedy is once again leaving two beautiful children to be cared for by a loving family. Dalancea was very excited to start a new chapter in her life and had recently accepted a position with American Auto Shield. Unfortunately, this recent work transition left her uninsured and with no funds for a funeral cost or funds for the care of her children. We all know that it takes a village to raise children. We would like to ask all of our family and friends to assist us through this tough time and gather money for her memorial and funds to make sure her children can have the best life possible. Thank you everyone, and please, keep us in your prayers.”
