A River Falls family is grieving for the loss of a 2-year-old and praying for quick recovery of the 2-year-old’s twin brother.

“Nehemiah was 2 years old and recently passed,” said family member Kimanisha Trawick, who has organized a GoFundMe account for the family. “We are asking if anybody can help a little bit with the funeral costs for our loss. Nehemiah meant the world to all of us and deserves a nice funeral ceremony. He was so sweet and kind with everyone and he always gave everyone a great big smile and was so loving to his twin brother and his sisters. Please help his mom, sisters, little brother and the family, as we lost an amazing child.”

Nehemiah Armstrong was the son of Emery Armstrong, who is also currently having to travel out of town to visit her other 2-year-old son, Jeremiah Armstrong, who is hospitalized.

The family plans to use some of the money raised to help with the gas expense to and from the hospital.

Trawick has set at $3,000 fundraising goal. At press time, $560 of it had been raised. The family did not have life insurance.

A candlelight vigil service will be held for Nehemiah Taylen Armstrong on Thurs., Nov. 16, at 5 p.m., at Andalusia Head Start, located at 719 Whatley Street in Andalusia.
