The community of Lubbock joined together Sunday evening to help the children of a murder victim. The fundraiser for the three Ellison children was held at Garcia's Mexican Restaurant. You'll remember, the kids lost their mother and step-father in a murder-suicide on July 5th. The two girls, Jennifer and Sarah, will be heading to the Dallas area to stay with their grandparents. Mark will stay in Lubbock so he can attend South Plains College. The kids say it means a lot that the community was there to support them during such a difficult time.
"It's overwhelming. I just couldn't have asked for anything more. The community, my friends, family, everyone's been great with all the prayers. We appreciate it," Mark said.
He added that just knowing that everyone is behind them and praying for them helps them get by every day.
