Funeral expenses for Deirdre Medina

Our 5 year old daughter, Deirdre Medina, passed away on Oct 22 2012 at 4:55am. She had Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1. Her cause of death was cardiac arrest and internal bleeding. This was sudden and unexpected, as Deirdre had not been sick for a long time and was quite happy yesterday during the day.

During this past year Deirdre did things she never thought she would. She expressed she wanted to be an animation artist, she went to Virginia Beach, visited Sesame Place, the Bronx Zoo, Little Airplane Studios, the Crayola Factory, Adventure Aquarium, Turtleback Zoo, MAW Wishing Place, and had her first and only visit to the cinema to watch Brave. Her Make a Wish travel was going to be in December 2012, she wanted to meet Pocahontas and Mulan...

Now, we want to do a service in NJ so everyone who met Deedee and wants to see her one last time can do so. We want to take her to Puerto Rico, her homeland, so she has another service there. and then bury her in our family pantheon. We need to cover Deirdre's funeral expenses as well as our family's move to the island.
