Eliesse A. "Peanut" Croad, 4, Patrick G. "Bub" Croad, 3, and Temprince J. "TJ" Croad, 2, all of Blossvale, died in a house fire Monday, July 23, 2018. Their parents Patrick  and Gabrielle Croad and 1 year-old Kaydence survived the blaze.

The girls, Peanut and TJ, loved Minnie Mouse and Hello Kitty; Bub was fascinated with anything to do with Cars the movie; and together they were all crazy about Finding Dory, according to their obituary.

A GoFund me campaign and Croad Family Benefit at Americu in Rome is collecting donations for the family. Clothing is also being collected by family and friends. A benefit is also being held August 26th at Grape-N-Grog in Camden from 3-7pm.

A candle light vigil was held to remember the 3 children last week.
