Help Astride's Funeral/Medical

From Krystal: Astride Jolicoeur came into this world fighting her odds and being an example of resiliency until her last breath. Astride grew up in in Port- au-Prince before later moving to the States. She  was an amazing wife, sister, grandmother, friend and our beloved mother... On January 30th, 2018, early morning while on her shift at work she unexpectedly passed away.

Everything happened so quickly, and heartbreakingly she moved on to the next life without a goodbye. She was always so positive! She touched the lives of so many with her joy and generosity, while also maintaining her sense of selflessness to the end with her trademark: “Hey Baby, how you doing?”

Mom was known for her passion of lending a helping hand, where early on in life she worked as a nursing assistant in the Overtown Medical Facility. Even After no longer working at the facility, Mom used her spare time for many years- rescuing and rehabilitating wounded animals- Later setting them free. Rising in the wee hours for work every day, constantly instilling and inspiring the value of hard work within me and my siblings. Mom started working in the hospitality industry in the maintenance department of the Fontainebleau Hilton, Sheraton Bal Harbor and later returned back to her Fontainebleau in 2008. She never took a break and worked up to her final day. 

During this difficult time we thank you for your kind words and thoughts. I don't want to write too much as I'm already struggling while typing, but basically, we need some help burying my mom.  My family has always prided itself on the same hard-work that my Mom instilled in us, but due to her unanticipated death right now we just need some help... 

Proceeds raised will go towards Astride's funeral arrangements, programs, flowers, burial, and outstanding medical expenses. Mom will be buried in Miami. A memorial Service is scheduled by the work community that she was so proud of- the Fontainebleau.

The burial arrangements are still in the air right now... Anything helps, please, I just want to help give my mom the proper goodbye that she deserves.
