Help Pay for Veronica Patton’s Funeral Cost

Hello everyone, On Sunday morning my sister-in-law, Veronica Marie Patton passed away at the young age of 21. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our small businesses were hit severely and we are unable to afford the entirety of the costs. She was my best friend and my husband’s twin sister and it devastates us to have to create a fundraiser for someone so dear to us. Veronica has always been a lover of the earth and animals. Our family has decided that a Green Burial will be the best option that will honor this same love. We are planning to lay her to rest at the Davis Cemetery and Arboretum in order to be close to family. For the Green Burial casket, transportation from the San Francisco Coroners office, Death Certificates, transport to the Davis Cemetary, and processing fees, it amounts to $4334. In order to buy a plot at the Davis Cemetary and Arboretum, it is estimated at 3990-5500. The flower casket spray may cost up to 100-300 as well. This brings the total, at most to $10,000. I will be personally handling the donation drive and delivering the funds directly to the cemetery, coroner, and Simple Traditions Inc., who will be providing the green burial. Any penny helps with these troubling times and I hope to ease the burden on my family by providing the support they need at this time. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and helping ease the load on a grieving family. If anything please share this in order to get the word out. Signed, Sophia Nichole Ygay
