“Dear PoPville,

A local elementary school student drowned while at the pool with her family last Saturday, and the family is seeking funds for counseling (presumably for the three other children in the family) and her memorial. I am not affiliated whatsoever, but it’s such a heartbreaking story that I felt compelled to share. The family could use the community support.”

From GoFundMe:

On Saturday, July 1, J’da Symone Gadson, 7 year old student at West Education Campus died in a pool accident while with her family. J’da was one of the sweetest children in our second grade class. She loved to learn and was a tremendously hard worker. J’da had her own sense of style and came to school each day with a bright smile. She will be truly missed by her classmates, teachers and West family. Mother Shawnice Winslow and her three children are having a difficult time coping with the loss. The school community would like to support through helping with counseling services, memorial costs and additional family expenses.
