I come as a humble, hurt, devastated mother. My son's name is Enrique Rios he is one of the victims of the massacare on June 12th 2016. In the night club Pulse having a good time and visiting from NYC on a vacation. We live in Brooklyn NY. Please help me bring my son home he is still in Orlando and I am asking for the public to be so kind and understant the pain a mother is going through. Anything will be appreciated. My family is torn apart and all I would like is to have my son with me so he can the funeral he deserves. My son was a good kid. He was just having  a great time on his vacation, until this deranged man came in and shot the place up killing 49 people and 30 in critical condition. Please help me bring my son home for a proper funeral. Thank you. May god bless you always

Barbara just motivated me to donate because of her thoughtless and crass words. Honestly, many of us just want some way to help families heal, if this family gets a little extra to make the days go by a little easier, so be it. No amount of money will make up for what happened to them.

Not sure how much money you think it costs to transport a body and pay for burial expenses including funeral home, casket & cemetery. Well it's a heck of a lot more then $4,000.00. Try $12,000.00 to $15,000.00. Barbara, you should be ashamed of yourself.

As a mother who has had to bury her teenage son 2 years ago this goes to Barbara Wall. My sons funeral was close to 10,000 without having to pay for him to be transported back to our state. You have no clue how much it costs to do this and how could you be so cruel to say she is doing this to scam people. No amount of money she asks for will ever be enough, she lost her son no money can replace him. I hope you don't have to live this one day the pain of losing a child is worse then any other pain. God Bless you Gertrude and family my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of grief.

Barbara Wall, you should hang your head in shame. My father inlaw passed away in January, his funeral cost over $12,000.00 and it was not anything fancy. This family is going through enough heartache and sorrow without hearing insensitive remarks like yours. Honey God don't like ugly and you are being extremely ugly. To the family, I am unable to donate at this time but I can offer hugs love and prayers. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give you peace in knowing Enrique is with him and safe from the ugliness of this world.

Considering that this amount was formulated ONLY TO TRANSPORT THE BODY ... Smh! Its gonna take way more than 4,000$ to pay for the funeral and all the arrangements. So please keep the unnecessary commentary to yourselves.

It's a horrid tragedy that her son was murdered....but now she has more than enough money to take care of the funeral arrangements. To continue pulling at the heartstrings of kind and giving people is nothing more than a scam...

Barbara Wall is a Trump supporting troll. Her profile photo is of a woman holding a gun. Her lack of empathy for this family and the murder of their son is despicable. Block the Trump Troll.
