“She was on her way home to celebrate Christmas and unfortunately turned out to be a tragic, tragic evening,” says Morgan, as per WBRC News.

“It seems like she had a seizure. Some type of medical event that caused her to black out and unfortunately had the injury that took her life.”

Morgan’s friend Katherine Lee said five children had to spend their first holiday without their mother.

“We woke up with our families. They didn’t. That’s all they had was their mom. She was a single mom that struggled and made it happen.”

A GoFundMe has been set up for her children’s immediate and ongoing expenses and has so far raised more than $14,000 for her kids who are currently living with other family members.

My heart goes out to the five children who are now without their mother. May they get the love and support they need from their extended family. Rest in peace.
