Riley Paige Sharpe



On July 1, 2010 my beautiful grandaughter Riley Paige Sharpe, who was 3 years old, was hit by a car and passed. The community came to our rescue for the funeral home expenses and the burial. What a wonderful community we have in Rochester, N.Y.!! Thank you so very very much to the Josh Rojas Foundation for their help with the monument for such a wonderful child. Parents and grandparents should not have to bury a child, but with the help of this wonderful city we live in, and the people like this foundation, our child was put to rest with dignity. Words can never be enough to tell people how grateful we are for the support we got. Thank you Rojas family for doing such wonderful work for families like us, who weren't prepared for something so horrific.
