The utterly unexpected and heart-wrenching incident has been devastating for the Rhodes family. Nonetheless, they are grateful for the daughter, wife, mom, and friend who has touched countless people’s lives.
Now, Jayne Jeje– a friend of Helen’s– has organized the GoFundMe campaign in an attempt to help the Rhodes family cope, grieve, and honor Helen.
“We can only hope she knew how much she meant to us and how her void can never be filled, how this loss is so painful and surreal. The grief we feel is paralyzing. Yet, we feel lucky to have known her,” wrote Jayne.
All funds raised will go toward three key areas: first, any unexpected funeral expenses; second, Simon’s children while he takes time off to grieve the loss of his wife; and third, to create a legacy in Helen’s honor.
The campaign, which was launched just five days ago with a goal of twenty thousand pounds, has already raised nearly thirty-five thousand pounds from nine hundred and eighty-four donors.
“I saw Helen nearly every morning with her two lovely kids; really heart-breaking. Helen was the most caring, generous, and thoughtful person. Thank you for all the great memories and deepest condolences to Simon and the kids,” wrote donor Tim Chow.
“Sending love and prayers to all family and friends who loved Helen. She will forever be in our hearts,” wrote another donor Melanie Ohara.
