"Today, Friday September 25th, 2020, I received the worst words a mother can ever hear. That my son, Anthony Gouchie, His girlfriend Emma Johnson and my 1 year old granddaughter Amira have passed away in a tragic house fire in Buffalo. As I cannot fathom burying them at this time, it all seems unreal. My first born child, Is no longer with me. I will no longer be able to watch Amira grow up and know what she could have become. I'm at a loss of words, on top of now having to worry about costs of the funerals of not one, but three people."
