Erica M Flores Funeral & Children's Fund

Erica Flores was my niece, I am posting this on behalf of her immediate family, because they are in need of financial help for her funeral. The kind of help that can be a burden to one person but collectively made easier by many.
Erica Michelle Flores was a beloved mother, daughter, sister, friend, cousin.  She made bright days brighter and sad days bearable with her infectious laugh and amazing humor.  She was light personified.  Unfortunately, at 42 years of age that light was prematurely extinguished.  On Saturday, May 24th, Erica Michelle Flores was innocently and tragically shot and killed in Patterson Ca., a victim of a random drive by shooting.  Our family is still in shock and cannot quite believe that this has really happened.  It feels as if we are stuck in a nightmare.  Erica leaves behind four children and two grandchildren, two brothers, a mother and countless friends and family.   She joins her grandmother who just recently passed away three weeks ago.  The family is doing what they can to raise money to pay for her funeral expenses and will host a car wash in Patterson.  Anything raised above and beyond the cost of burial will be given to help provide for her children and grandchildren. 

Any contribution would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your empathy and compassion.
