Rockingham County, NC -- The families of a Bethany couple killed in a home invasion last week have issued a statement expressing their thanks to the community.
The statement also includes information about a fund set up for Troy and LaDonna French's children, 14-year-old Hunter and 19-year-old Whitley.
The statement, provided to WFMY News 2 by the funeral home that handled arrangements for the family, said in its entirety:
"We would like to thank all of those who have kept our family in their thoughts and prayers. We especially would like to thank those in our community who have touched our lives personally in this difficult time. Troy and LaDonna brought joy to everyone who encountered them. Their love and beautiful spirit will be cherished by us forever and never forgotten. We are a family strong in our faith and will trust in God to direct our path out of this darkness.
"An account for Whitley and Hunter has been established to assist in their health, education, maintenance and support. You can donate directly to Whitley and Hunter French in care of Reidsville Bible Chapel. The generosity and support of family, friends, and the community are a blessing from God who will continue to care for Whitley and Hunter in all their endeavors.
"Checks should be payable to the Reidsville Bible Chapel, designated to the Whitley & Hunter French fund."
The joint statement from the French and Moseley families comes a week after Troy and LaDonna were shot the death in the home. The community has been on edge since the killings and the sheriff's department hasn't made any arrests.
Sheriff Sam Page released a statement Friday that said "my Investigative Team will bring whoever is responsible for this heinous crime to justice."
