Efforts are underway to raise money to pay for the funerals for an Easley High School student and his mother.
Daniel Gabriel Smith and his mother Sandra Lee Michelle Smith Thomas were killed last week by Sandra's husband, William D. Thomas, who then turned the gun on himself.
Daniel, a 9th grader at Easley High School and a member of the school's wrestling and football teams, and his mother were laid to rest Monday afternoon.
Donations will be collected at tomorrow's Green Wave football game. A donation set-up will be at both entrances of the EHS stadium.
All proceeds will go toward the funeral costs and to purchase a headstone for Daniel and Sandra.
Organizers say that funds raised about what is needed for the funeral costs and stone will be donated to MARY'S House, which provides emergency shelter and services to women and their children seeking to escape domestic violence.
Donations will also be collected at Marathon Church in Powdersville, located at 315 Roe Rd. in Greenville. For more information, call 864-220-0632.
