Barbecue fundraiser to support family with funeral cost

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - "She love to dance so we know that she's up there dancing away," Mandy Griffin.

Lacy Shaylin Griffin, a Cook County toddler, drowned two weeks ago, and is sorely missed by her Grandmother Mandy Griffin. 

"And we know that she's up their on her aunt's lap and her grandma's lap and she's playing Elmo and up there just having a good time,"  Griffin said

Griffin's family has suffered many losses this year. But the outpouring of support has kept her in awe. 

"There's been such a big out pouring of the community it's just been unreal," Griffin said. 

Today friends and family pulled together to host a barbecue fundraiser to help the family with funeral costs. Something that Griffin can't say thank you enough for. 

"It's overwhelming it's very overwhelming, every person that rides up to buy a barbecue plate like I want to cry," Griffin said. 

Craig Bryan, is glad to help, and amazed by the family's strength. 

"It's terrible you know for anybody and to see him grow from this and try to strive and better himself is a blessing," Bryan said.  

The Griffin family says any funds left over after the funeral will be donated in their granddaughter's name.
