A Florida family is reeling after three young children are left without their parents, who died separately within two weeks.

Stephanie Caceres's boyfriend and father of the twins, Jevaughn Suckoo, was buried on Wednesday. He was shot and killed in his West Palm Beach home on July 11.

Friends and family confirm that Caceres gave birth just days after his death but suffered complications from a C-section while birthing the twins. Friends told WPTV she had gotten an infection.

She died in the ICU at Palms West Hospital.

Caceres worked at Juan Batista Pediatrics in West Palm Beach. They have been working to collect donations of diapers, baby formula and other items to help the surviving children. They're also in the process of putting together a trust fund.

West Palm Beach police said they still have no new updates or leads in finding Suckoo's killer. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective P. Creelman at 561-822-1676 or Detective D. MacCarthy at 561-822-1666 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 800.458.TIPS.

The family has created a new GoFundMe page for the children.

Story updated to clarify that Stephanie never left the hospital.
