When a loved one dies, keeping their memory alive is a way of honoring their life and finding comfort in your own life as a survivor. Some people do this with actual physical memorials, while others prefer to donate to a fund. In response to the deadly shooting on Saturday, January 25, 2014 at the Columbia Mall, two memorial funds have been established in honor of Brianna and Tyler.
Brianna Benlolo Memorial Fund
The "Brianna Benlolo Memorial Fund" will benefit Brianna’s son and will be set up as a trust to provide for his future health, education, support and maintenance. Contributions can be made at any Wells Fargo branch by referencing the Brianna Benlolo Memorial Fund or can be made by mailing a check to:
The Brianna Benlolo Memorial Fund
P.O. Box 1353
Lynnwood, WA 98046
Please note that contributions made to Brianna's Memorial Fund are not tax deductible.
Tyler Johnson Memorial Fund
