Mother's funeral arrangement costs

There are times in life when you meet a person and they make a lasting impression. Nina Yakimenko did that through her passion for amazing food and hospitality. No matter what your day looked like, if you were invited to Nina's house and sat down to have one of her wonderfully cooked meals, your day instantly got better. She loved to make people happy by cooking delicious meals.

Nina's life was cut short by an aggressive multi-organ failure that took her life too early. She will be dearly missed and her legacy will be in our hearts forever. 

The family needs your help to cover the funeral costs. Unfortunately, due to extensive medical costs, the family is financially drained and unable to cover the costs. We know that your hearts are generous. There are many who can relate to the pain of losing a loved one, and also to the financial need for the funeral arrangements.  

As you know, the funeral arrangments take place extremely quickly and urgently. We are asking for your help. Please find it in your heart to contribute whatever amount you can, as every little bit helps. Nina's services to lay her body to rest is scheduled for November 17th, 2017. Please consider donating today.  We need to pay for all the funeral services in full by Wednesday the 15th. 

We thank you in advance for everyone's continuous support, we greatly appreciate it.
