Georgieva Family Funeral Fund

This is a request for donations to pay for the cremation of my father, who passed away this morning (3/11/15), and for the return of his ashes to Bulgaria. Please donate if you can, and please share either way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

------------------------------------------------

My parents and I (pictured) moved here from Bulgaria 15 years ago. I'm blessed and eternaly grateful to have grown up with loving parents that willingly gave up their entire lives in Bulgaria just to bring me to the United States for all the amazing opportunities here for me. Its been quite the adventure so far and I know none of my accomplishments and growth could be possible without my amazing parents.

Unfortunetly, the worst thing that could have happened took place this morning of March 11th, 2015. My father passed away after falling into cardiac arrest from a heart attack in our home. At age 63, I never expected him to die so soon.. He was an amazing man, father, husband, and friend. He was always full of so much knowledge and philosophy worth sharing and not a day passed by that I didn't feel his unconditional love for me. I love my dad soo much and I'm going to miss him for the rest of my life. This is much harder for my mom though because they were happily married for 39 years! She is a very strong woman but losing your significant other so late in life can obviously make it much harder to bounce back to positivity. This is definitely a very emotional time for me and my family but most of all it feels difficult because of all the expenses we have now. We wish to cremate him so we can bring his ashes back to Bulgaria with all our family but we simply cannot do this alone. My mom and I need your help to pay for the cremation and all the other expenses related to his death. The funeral home he is at right now is asking for $2,000 up front JUST for the cremation. We are good people who have always loved helping others but now we really, really need your help more than ever. Any little bit of money helps and any prayers and good wishes you may send our way are appreciated more than you know. Please help my mom and I in our toughest hour in any way that you can. Thank you so much for being here to read our story and thank you in advance for your contribution regardless of its format.

The breakdown of where the money is going:
+$2,000 for the cremation
+$1,600 for my mom's plane ticket
+$1,600 for my plane ticket
+$500 for other death expenses
+$300 for GoFundMe fees
This brings us to a total need of $6,000. That is a lot of money and thats why even the smalled donation can make a big difference. 

Thank You SO Much, 
Dona Georgieva

p.s. Call your mom. Call your dad. Call your brothers and sisters. Call your grandparents. Contact the people you love and tell them how much you love them because life is short and you really never know how much time you have left with them in this world. Best Wishes.
