Help a grieving grandmother

My name is Anna Kehoe. I am trying to help Zulema, my sister in law, afford to bring her 3 grandchildren to the United States. 

Last saturday morning I received a call from Zulema crying telling me her daughter was brutally murdered in Guatemala.  Her daughter, Iracema, was a victim of domestic violence. She was stabbed multiple times and thrown from a second floor balcony.  All this occurred while her 2 1/2 year old son was there. Thankfully her other two children were with their great-grandfather.
 
There are several unknown expenses at this time. Iracema did not have life insurance. In addition to the unexpected expense to travel  across the country to bury her daughter, she also now has the expense of adopting her 3 grandchildren and brining them to the USA. 

There are still a lot of unknown as to when we will be able to get the kids here. Zulema has a court date July 11th in Guatemala to proceed with the next steps. 

In in addition to the travel expenses traveling to/from Guatemala, time off of work, attorney fees, translator fees she will need help getting the children adjusted to their new life. 

I will never be able to heal the pain she has from loosing her daughter. I would love to be able to help her with the expense of getting her grandchildren.
