The 12-year-old’s mother says she will be buried with her beloved dog. “She bought her with her own cash. It was her baby,” Donna Jean Stuples said. A funeral service is scheduled for Saturday afternoon in Lexington, Virginia.
The family created a GoFundMe page to help pay for the funeral costs. “She will always be remembered as a sweet, energetic, dog-loving, hunting-loving little girl,” a note on the GoFundMe page read. “A little girl who touched the lives of many.”
Police are still investigating the crash.
