The family of Lexington’s Kwame El-Amin has said that, due to his religious beliefs, El-Amin should be buried as quickly as possible. Due to the rush, they have not had much time to gather funds for the burial.

 “We are an extremely private family; however, we realize that Kwame was an active member of his community and touched many lives.”

They hope to raise $20,000, and ask for prayers from the community to honor his passing.
