On March 25, the world lost a beautiful soul in Aurora Genai. She started Spring Break with her friends at the beach and a tragic accident occurred where a log pinned her underwater and Aurora's young life was cut short. She leaves behind her grandparents, a five year old sister who was her shadow, a two year old brother who adored her, and her thirteen year old brother who walked through her short life with her and loved her so much. Aurora has two other siblings - a six year old and four year old rounded out Aurora's family. Her two sets of parents were never 'step,' everyone loved Aurora and she was a bright and beautiful soul who brought joy to everyone she met. She was a varsity cheerleader, full of passion and love, and an excellent student.

This unexpected passing has left everyone in shock. The last thing that her parents should be thinking about is funeral expenses during this difficult time. We hope that friends, family and our community can ban together and ease the financial burden that her parents face during this time. We appreciate your support.

**This page is started by Aurora's aunt. This is an official page. Anything beyond final expenses will go to supporting Dave and Cora as they endure loss of work.**

We cannot thank you enough for all the support. Aurora continues to be missed every day. Please remember my brother and sister in law will continue to hurt long after the funeral has passed. Cards, meals, hugs, kind words, are all things that can help as their pain will always be with them. Aurora was a piece of their heart that will always be missing. Thank you for everything. Your kind words are incredibly valuable at this time.

Thank you all very much for your kindness, generosity, and healing words. My brother and sister-in-law have so incredibly much gratitude to receive so much support in so many ways. The celebration of Aurora's life that was open to all friends and family was breathtaking and showed so much love, caring, and shared grief for the loss of Aurora.

The family has yet to decide what to do with additional funds beyond a memorial service and having a gemstone made for a necklace from Aurora's ashes so that she is always close to my sister-in-law. As life moves forward it is still difficult and surreal to grasp that Aurora is truly gone. Just as her name would tell, her spirit shines bright and not a day will pass that she is not remembered as the intelligent, kind-hearted, loving, beautiful, free-spirited young lady that she was.
