Sadly and suddenly Ciera Melson passed away on Saturday October 6th 2018. Ciera died suddenly of hypertensive heart failure due to Graves Disease. She had just celebrated her 26th birthday.

Ciera was just getting started on her journey. She had just moved into her first place 3 weeks ago. She was adulting and proud. Now she will never get married, have her own family, or reach any of her other grand goals. Being in your 20s is an amazing fun discovery and journey into the next stages of life. Sadly Ciera will never get that and her family will never see that.She was all about family!. She was kind, loving, so goofy, loved sports, and video games.

I will miss her. Her family and friends will miss her. There will be a void for a long time to come. She deserves something beautiful.33586504_1539054946197787_r.jpeg
This family has already paid over $15000 for their sons funeral 17 months ago.

There are no words in the dictionary to explain how devastated this family is. They are BROKEN. Losing 1 child is something many people dont come back from.
This beautiful family is still grieving from the loss of their son Jalean.

As a parent when your child dies you become crushed inside. Feeling like a concrete block has literally been dropped on you. You can breathe barely. You are paralyzed. And the tears just keep coming. You cant sleep. You dont want to eat. You cant really even believe what has just happened is even true. You dont want it to be true. 
You question why???????? A million different whys in a million different ways. You want to go back. Do something different. Change the outcome. Functioning on the most basic human level is overwhelming.

THEN while all this is happening you have to face a financial reality that you years college tuition in 2 weeks but its not for college is for your childs funeral. Just to be sure your baby. The love of your life. The blood of your blood. Your sweet sweet baby has a beautiful and peaceful final resting place.

It suddenly becomes so real to you that this right here, right now, is the most important LAST thing you will EVER do for your baby.
