Funeral Costs

$23,390 of $20k goal

Raised by 700 people in 27 months
Ashlyn Surgeon   PASCO, WA
This wonderful family was so excited to meet their baby boy. Early Saturday morning, April 26th 2014, Ana was taken to the hospital to soon meet her son. While in labor, Ana began to feel ill and it seemed like in just seconds, she was unconsious. Shortly after, her heart stopped beating, and at that point, they had to save baby Raul. They had an emergency c-section and the baby made it, although Ana did not. Raul Ramirez is now raising a family of 5, all while trying to work a full time job, all on his own. Baby Raul was not able to meet his mother, and Ana wasn't able to meet her beautiful baby boy. Ana's birthday is in just 3 days, on April 30th. The best gift to this family, other than love and support, would be donations towards the funeral and memorial costs for Ana Gutierrez-Ramirez.

For those of you that are/were wondering if and how I know Raul and his family, I've known Raul for the majority of my life. He worked for my dad's company for almost 11 years. At one point, when I was probably 7 or so, Raul let us know that he was quitting. I wrote him a letter explaining to him (all words probably misspelled) that he was my favorite employee and that I didn't want him to quit. He ended up staying with my dad after reading that letter, and Raul has kept it still to this day. Raul has always had a special place in both mine and my families hearts. When I was told by my parents about what happened, I knew I had to help any way I could. I did NOT expect to get any where close to this much money donated. So thank you all so much for your donations, prayers, love, and support. I just know it is making it that much easier for Raul & his family during this time.

The goal has been raised to $20,000. I am not expecting to reach that goal, but everyone has shocked me so far with your donations. In exactly 2 DAYS of this account being made, we are close to $10,000! I want every single person that donated to know how much you guys are truly helping this family. Not just by your donations, but by showing them that SO many of you, that don't even know the family personally, are taking the time out of your day and the money out of your banks to help. God Bless You All. & thank you so much. The family checks this site often. You all are truly CHANGING LIVES. ❤️❤️❤️

So sorry for your loss, this one is hard to grasp. I know what you are going though, because we lost our 28 year old daughter 6 years ago due to An AFE. We live in the Seattle area I am a member of a facebook page you can join, one FB page has over 700 members that are talking about surviving an AFE then a FB page for family members that have lost our loved ones, another FB page for just husbands that have lost their wife. Amniotic Fluid Embolism Foundation. Also a web page full of information http://afesupport.org/ Baylor College is doing a study funded by afesupport.org. Let us know if we can answer any questions.

I wish I had the words to ease the hurt that your family is experiencing, but i don't. Time, prayer, and faith in God is all that will heal your hurt. So I will pray that as time goes on your hearts may heal, your prayers become more often and your faith in God and his plan for you becomes stronger. I cannot even begin to imagine the grief your experiencing, Ive always wondered what my husband would do if God were to take me home before we plan, I imagine he'd be heart broken and go through the motions. I would hope though that he'd celebrate my life and the time we got to share and everthing we accomplished together, I would hope that he would share all our happy and sad memories with our children and I would hope that one day when the hurt no longer brought teats to his eyes that he would learn to live without me and that he would find happiness where ever God lead him. I pray for strength for you Raul. To lead and hold your family together, to cry with them and let them know its ok to hurt, but there are so many memories and cherished times to smile about too. As soon as my husband gets paid we will make our donation to ypur family, so you can be with your children for hopefully as long as necessary. My heart aches for you and your children. Im so very sorry for your loss.

Oh dear Lord, bless this family with peace. Let them be still and know that yoi are there, every step of their journey. Please guide them through their grief and help them to not question or try to comprehend your plan you have set before them, but to just be still and know your there, that this unfortunate loss that they have endured happened for a reason, even though they might not have come to know what the reason is. Keep a watchful eye over these sweet babies as they grow, let them not forget their mothers love, or yours. Let their mothers memory live on within them, remind them that she is always near, at every first milestone they experiance, at every sibling fight and make up, at every graduation, wedding and birth of their future children, through every step of the way let them experiance the reminder that their mother is near, let them feel her presence and love and pride for them that she has. In your name I pray AMEN

20,000 is a generous amount seeing the goal is almost met I say higher it it's not being greedy but to give this beautiful person a funeral she deserves plus to even give him a couple months off of work to spend time wit his children especially with what they r going thru they need him home now more than ever and to let him bond with his son if people see it as greedy oh well rt now he has to focus on his children. That's jus my opinion.

Yasmin, I actually wondered the same thing. Which is part of the reason I changed the goal amount to $20,000. I wasn't sure if once it hit $10,000, no more donations would be accepted. With these donations, the funeral is paid for. Raul is trying to get time off from work, but he is only looking at about 3 weeks off right now. Which isn't nearly enough time. The rest of the money donated after the funeral is paid for, will go towards the 3 beautiful girls, baby Raul, Dante, and the father. Thanks again so much.
