So many of our friends and family have asked if they can help our family in this time of shock and grief. It’s hard to know what we will need over the next week, but we have a very large extended family and many of them are traveling and staying in South Florida. We would ideally like to keep as many people close to each other as possible, so we are reserving a few places where several people can stay together, eat together, and share and mourn together. Because making plans and coordinating things is challenging and we expect it to be an ongoing task this week, we are creating a place for people to help here. The funds will go toward places for family to stay, for food, and for funeral arrangements, and the remaining will be put toward a scholarship in Carmen’s name.

We thank you all for your love and support at this time.

I want to personally thank each and every person who reached out to our family, either though this GoFundMe effort or otherwise, to express their love and support. Your thoughts, prayers, and memories, have been a constant source of light and hope in these dark days. In the days coming I will send you each a personal note on behalf of Carmen’s family. Until then, please accept this message of gratitude. This fund served to allow a very large number of Carmen’s family members to personally give comfort to each other and to say goodbye. It will continue to help the family manage unexpected expenses and will ultimately, as her parents see fit, be used to pay it forward in a way that honours Carmen’s memory best.

I am going to close the fund by the end of the day tomorrow. We never imagined that so many would be touched by what has happened and would be motivated to help. It speaks to the goodness of people and to the light in the world that will overcome such darkness if we stay steadfast and focused on our love for one another above all else.
