A fatal house fire in a Newburgh neighborhood on Sunday night, claimed the life of a sweet one-year-old.

Friends of the family have set up a GoFundMe to help cover the funeral costs and help the family during this time.

According to the GoFundMe created by Laci Benson, "On Sunday (03/22/20), a fire destroyed the home that Taylor lived in with her two daughters, Maddie and Kensley, and mother, Julie.  Tragically, Taylor's 23-month-old daughter Kensley did not survive.  Kensley was a big-bow wearing fashionista who was excited for her 2nd birthday on April 10.  She loved to listen to music and dance, the movie Trolls was her very favorite, and watching cartoons on mommy's iPad was the best.  She loved playing with her big sister, Maddie, and snuggle times with her daddy, Todd.  But her most favorite thing was for her mommy to read to her. These funds will be used to help with medical expenses and funeral costs, as well as for the replacement of their personal items that were lost in the fire. We cannot fathom the grief Taylor and her family are feeling right now, but being able to help them financially with these donations will go a long way in relieving some of the burden she is carrying.  No matter the amount you may be able to give, your gracious generosity is truly appreciated.  Please keep Taylor and her family in your prayers as they find their way through this heartbreaking ordeal."
