For those who would like to get involved, there is a GoFundMe page to help the family of Linh Pham, the Bristow woman who was tragically shot down at Atlas Walk in Gainesville, last week.

The page has so far raised $7,000, but the goal is $20,000.

Pham’s friend Tommy is the creator of the page. He wrote that Linh was only 26-years-old. She is single mother who is leaving behind a six-year-old daughter. The money raised would mainly be used to help raise, Linh’s daughter, Victoria.

Tommy described Linh as a hard worker who was always happy and caring towards people, and said that for him, her death still seems unreal.

Taryn Stubs, Manager at Bubbles, Gainesville, was a friend and coworker of Pham’s who only the highest praise for her.

“She was a joy. She was a beautiful spirit. She was just beautiful, giving, and just a gem,” Stubs said. “A client undergoing chemo and Linh shaved her own head to support her client who was losing her hair. That’s the type of person she was. She will be greatly missed.”

Stubs said that her Bubbles family is also looking to help fundraise for Pham, who was the assistant manager there in Gainesville for the last six years. Staff at the salon want to raise to see that Pham’s daughter is provided for, and also to help to pay Pham’s legal fees acquired during a custody battle.

Stubs wants people to understand the kind of woman Linh was.

“She was a beautiful daughter, beautiful mother and beautiful spirt,” Stubs said.  “A little cra – crazy in a good way, a lot of fun, and she will definitely greatly be missed,” Stubs said.

Bubbles salon is thinking of holding a Zumba dance party fundraiser in honor of Linh’s life. Stubs said she may choose to hold it at Brentsville High School, the school from which Linh graduated.

Stubs cannot think of a better way to celebrate Linh than with Zumba.

“Loud music, fun, that’ what Linh was about. She always had a smile on her face, and she was always doing something crazy. She was trying to do Zumba at the salon, and I would have to put her out.”

Those who knew Linh Pham, or have heard about the tragedy, have the opportunity to give to her family via her GoFundMe page.

Please pass along the message!
