Please Help With Funeral Expenses

Today, July 18, 2017, we unexpectedly lost an amazing women, an incredible daughter, and a phenomenal mom.
My name is Karen Ward. My daughter Christina Pugliese passed away unexpectedly at home. She was a single mom whose life revolved around her 10 year old daughter Destiny. She tried to make a better life for them by returning to college and receiving her BS in Criminal Justice along with a Certicate in Advanced Paralegal Studies. Christina was the first one in the family to receive a BS degree, and she did it Summa Cum Laude. She was an all around beautiful soul, who was loved by many.

Most 30 year olds don't think they have to plan for funerals, and Christina was no different.
I ask you now, could you please find it in your hearts to help us raise the money to cover Christina's funeral expenses. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. If money donated exceeds the funeral expenses, the remainder will be placed in a trust for her daughter's education.
Thank you all in advance for your generosity.
