Lila Outstanding Bills

$2,947 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 93 people in 33 months

My 6 yr old granddaughter's father, Seth Pickering, was stripped of his parental rights for wrong doing. He then kidnapped Lil' Lila and brutally murdered her in North Carolina by stabbing her in front of authorities saying if he could not have her no one could. The expenses to fly her home to our family is double, double funeral home expenses, extra storage expenses, plus extra costs due to the way she died, etc. I am only on a low disability income. I put up this go fund me, however, the taxes and usage fees are high so a lot of what is donated I do not receive. I have had to get loans i can not afford and put people in tight spots I have to pay back asap. There are more bills coming in weekly and I have been called and told of even higher bills to come. I just want to get this done to mourn my baby granddaughter. Please help!!  I am at my whits end. RIP Lila Pickering 9-9-2016

The go find me takes out so much in taxes and usage fees that I have received far less than you think to pay for Lil' Lila's funeral of double multi state expenses. I have thousands in a loan I can not come close to afford putting others in a tight spot and there are more bills coming in plus even more I have been called and told to expect. I just want to let her rest in piece and everyone to get paid so I and her family can stop going ragged and mourn this tragic situation and our little baby girl.

Disgrace to the people passing nasty judgement at a horrific time as this, I pray this never happens to your family. How DARE you. Do you have ANY idea how much a funeral costs these day, the wake, the burial, not to mention the casket, the plot itself, the head stone and flowers. Besides the food and lodging. What about delivering her little precious body back to Florida.......it must be flown to the Funeral home, what do you people think, they can just pick her up like a sack of potatoes and drive her home? They need help. Period. Who are you to judge? Do you even have a clue the lawsuit they have against both States? "Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues." Instead of criticizing, try uplifting people when they are down. Just imagine for a moment if this was your baby, grand-baby, or niece , can your little brains wrap around that, will you be prepared? The amount of time this will take, driving, flying, with the police, attorneys, investigations, Mama's already in the hospital, they will miss work etc, no income, but guess what, the bills keep coming in don't they. Lord have mercy on these people. Silence the ignorance Father. To the family of precious little Lila, have no fear, she is with Jesus, and she is happy and healthy, please find some comfort in knowing this. I pray His peace and comfort is felt throughout the days, weeks and months to come. May her Mama be healed by the mighty strips of Jesus. I am truly sorry for your loss. God bless you all. Much love ♥

What happened to your granddaughter is tragic. I couldn't imagine the pain your daughter is in right now. But you? You're trying to make money off a little girls death. Your own grand child. A campaign for 15k to 20k I would understand. But 100k? You are trying to take advantage of your granddaughters murder and make a financial gain. That's disgusting. You should seriously be ashamed of yourself.

I am completely disgusted that anyone who have the nerve to criticize a family mourning the loss of a child over something as irrelevant as a sum of money. I am sure you could find better people to harass on this site. Like the Toms, Dicks, and Harrys asking for donations to pay for a vacation or the newest gadget.

Who cares what the number on the page is? Who cares that the family is raising money, here, as opposed to "directly at a funeral home"? And even if both of those things did bug you -- maybe you take a pass a writing a holier-than-thou comment, given they are experiencing something that is beyond horrific. Shame on you.

The narcissistic abusive husband, took his daughter against the mothers wishes and left the state of Florida. We are not all lucky enough to have 10s of thousands for dollars for high powered attorney fees. The poor Mom was fighting in the court for return of her daughter to Florida and won. The murderous abusive Seth Pickering kidnapped his daughter from protective custody and slaughtered her to punish the poor Mom .. I cannot imagine what the family is going through right now. There but for the grace of God, my little niece was spared this outcome and is home safe with her Mom after 10 yrs of fighting. 15 months of torture, was finally coming to an end and now instead of bringing a little girl home to he family they must transport her little lifeless body, which is not cheap. Her poor Mom is in the hospital after hearing this unbearable news no Mom should have t hear.

I'm not really clear on why the child was not with her own mother for 18 months. Something does not add up here, but it is a terrible tragedy nonetheless. very sad.

It is very expensive to move a deceased one from one state to another. It has to be coordinated between two funeral home directors and the airlines. Because this child was murdered, who knows when her body will be released by the medical examiner. This family has been in an ongoing custody battle and I am sure the attorney fees are still lingering. Prayers for this family

What a horrible, horrible tragedy. But, really, 100k? It does not cost that much to retrieve and then bury this sweet angel. Provide funeral home information and I will gladly donate. It would be great if a funreal home in their community donated their services to lau her to rest like they have here in my arear when a child had passed away.

Rip sweet angel and my prayers goes out to your family. May they find peace from this horrific crime and haters out there. For you Negative people out there. This go fund me account was made if someone would like to donate they could. You are not being forced to donate so keep your opinions to yourself. 100k seems reasonable to me. The article I read stated mom was in the hospital. Which is understandable for what she has gone through and that bill is adding up. Now to the funeral cost that can easily go for $15-$20,000. This is not including the transportation of this little girl to be brought home to her family for a proper funeral. As a parent or grandparent of course they are going to also need traveling expenses. Think about it people!!! If this was my child, I would personally be going out of state where my child is and make sure arrangements are made correctly. You can't do that over a phone and however long it takes for them to release the body. Work is going to be missed for the these days. A week or two with no income, if they have no vacation days. I see this amount to being close $100 thousand. Think before you speak. Whether these grandparents are on a fixed income or spent all there money on lawyers to try to get this little girl back home which unfortunately never happened. They are asking for help and I see nothing wrong about this. This little girl deserves a huge princess funeral for all I care. She didn't deserved to be murdered by her abusive father. May she rest in peace.
