The family of Tammy Hicks, the White City woman who police say was murdered by her husband on Saturday, held a press conference today, where they spoke of overhwelming support from the community.

Friends and strangers alike have come together to provide donations and lend a hand in any way they know how.

The family says this has been essential, especially for the four children Hicks left behind.

"It takes a community to do what Tammy did for these kids," says Cody Nelson, a cousin of the victim. "It's just amazing how much she really did, and it's really going to take all of us to even come clsoe to how wonderful of a mom she was."

With only a month's rent left in their family home, the children will move to live with grandparents in the area, leaving behind animals and other possessions.

The family stresses the importance of returning a sense of normalcy to the children through school and extracurricular activities.

If you want to help out the family, there is a go fund me and an estate sale this weekend and next, from 8am-5pm at 12213 Table Rock Road, Central Point, OR 97502.
