I would like to thank everyone for their kind donations. Every dollar donated to this fund will pay for funeral expenses and to help Antonio"s needs. I am currently working with the Brunetti Family Attorney who is handling Skye's estate. Just to let everyone know that Go Fund Me and the company that pays out the money had administrative fees of 7.9% This was set up to help a family in need. Please be understanding. I would do this if I knew you and were in dire financial need too.
Please be advised that all negative comments have been deleted and will continue to be deleted.

Good Afternoon everybody! On behalf of the Brunetti Family we would like to express our sincere gratitude for the generosity of everyone who has donated. First, if interested the viewing for Skye will be held at Frederick Chapey and Sons, 200 East Main Street, East Islip, NY on Saturday evening 04/16 from 7 pm to 9:30 pm and Sunday 04/17 from 2 pm to 4:30 pm and 7 pm to 9:30 pm.
The Go Fund Me site will remain open for at least the next month. I am in the process of working with their family Attorney in setting up a Trust Account in Skye son Antonio's name. Although the money will never replace his mother, his family will be there for him and his needs will be covered. Once the trust is established and this site is closed I will leave directions on where anyone else can make donations. I ask that you keep Skye, Antonio and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
Although I have the best intentions, I feel that I must explain my relationship with the Brunetti Family. My youngest daughter and Skye have been friends since elementary school. I have seen Skye grow to a beautiful woman and dedicated mother. In 2001 I lost my wife after a lengthy illness. I was left to raise 3 children between the ages of 5 and 13. Thanks to having a wonderful support system of family and friends, I was able to raise 3 beautiful children. In 2010 I was blessed with a beautiful granddaughter. So there are some similarity with Skye and Antonio. When this horrible tragedy occurred, I felt that I needed to step up and pay it forward. I am aghast that people would question the validity of this fund. I would never think that someone would stoop so low as to think this was a scam. Instead of posting this garbage on the site you could always email me and i would explain. Thank you and God Bless.

This was my best friend in the entire world, I cannot even put into words just how much she'll be missed... Thank you everyone for your generosity, you're all amazing And for any skeptics, Mr Spina is the father of another good friend of Skye's, and with permission from her family he set up this account for her. which they were so grateful for. This money will cover all funeral expenses and anything left over will get put in an account strictly for Antonio, 5. I love you Skye Anne Brunetti 1/6/91-4/12/16

Peter, you do not need to explain. Anyone who knows you and your kids would not even think to question this good deed. My James has known your girls for years I first met you shortly after your wife passed and always admired what a great job you were doing with three young kids. I hear what a great mom Kaitlin is and what an awesome father and grandpa you are. You must have done something right! Again, no need to explain anything.

I really wanted to give, but do not have the extra funds right now. I came to this page praying the family is getting significant donations. I was so glad to see that the goal(and then some) has been reached in just 12 hours!!! Amazing what can be done when people come together and give out of the goodness of their hearts. I am so glad the family will not have to worry at all about the financial aspect, and can grieve their loss without that extra burden. Many prayers for her family and friends and especially her little boy as they struggle to come to terms with these sudden, and utterly devastating losses. It breaks my heart that her son had to face the loss of his mother and his dog...all in one day. Seems more than any adult could bear. ♥

unfortunately, I did not have the pleasure of knowing this awesome young lady. It is very tragic and I am sooo sorry for everyone's loss here. I have to say something here....this tragic event has touched me in a special way. You see, I was born and raised in EI but unfortunately moved south about 24 years ago. We do not have the same environment as EI has. ITs just amazing to see everyone pulled together to support the Brunetti family in their time of need. I gotta say NYer's are just the best and now I'm homesick!

So sorry for the families loss. Skye's Aunt is a dear friend of mine. And the hardest part now is going to be watching Skye's little boy grow up without her. Prayers go out to all her family and friends.
