TAMPA, Fla. — A new effort is underway to support the sister of the fourth victim of the Seminole Heights killer.

Tina Felton, sister of Ronald Felton, who died earlier this month, needs help, according to Pastor Kenneth Stewart of Tabernacle of Hope Church.

She lost her husband within two weeks of losing her brother and doesn't have the money to cover two funerals, Stewart said.

Now, Tabernacle of Hope Church has started a GoFundMe page to help raise money for both funerals.

"I tell you when I told her that we would assist her in this, she pretty much just broke down and started crying tears of joy," Stewart said. "I could just feel like a weight coming off  of her shoulder."

"We are appealing to the community to join with us to support Tina Felton in the double loss she has suffered in one week and do our part to assist in the funeral expenses for her husband," the page reads.

A special account has been set up at Sun Trust Bank in the name of Tabernacle of Hope in a special account listed as Fundraising for Tina Felton or you may give through this link also, the GoFundMe page reads.

All proceeds will go directly towards the funeral expenses and any leftover funds will be paid to ongoing household bills that has built up during this time of loss, Stewart said. 

You may contact  Pastor Kenneth Stewart of Tabernacle of Hope at or 813-513-4880 with any questions.

Felton's husband's funeral is Saturday.
