Ana M. Kuchenbaur Memorial Fund

Any loss for any family is terrible but even more so when you lose someone so suddenly, so unexpected and with a whole life before them.
We lost our beloved Ana in this way. One day we were celebrating another year of life in grand "Ana- style", along with her family and friends here in Miami,  and just 3 days later our Ana was rushed to the hospital and in critical condition due to heart failure.

Ana was a radiant being and shined in every aspect of her life. She was a loving daughter, sister, niece, great niece, grand daughter, cousin, and friend.  Her family knew her love, she made sure they felt it. Family meant the world to her and she  most definitely lived by "Ohana: No one gets left behind." She established and maintained friendships at a very early age beginning with her next door neighbor Carmen. She cherished her friendships, like a gardener she tended to them and made sure that all her friends had their individual bond and unique relationship with her. She was a true friend--a  rarity.

Although Ana struggled a bit through school, she never gave up;  she put in 120% effort into her studying and went off to college and left a mark on every school and everyone whose path she crossed in her career. She always had that personal touch, that light she shined, spreading her warmth to anyone that had the privilege to be touched by it.

Ana was lucky enough to meet the love of her life, Kris, who brought out the very best in her and whom she loved passionately and wholly. She always felt blessed and grateful with her life, a sentiment she shared, with those she loved, at her 35th party.

Now in her parting Ana has left the world a bit dimmer but all who knew her have been marked and we know that she is shining oh so brightly in heaven. 

As her best friends we would like to start this fund to help her family with the financial aspect of this already painful and difficult struggle so that we may say farewell to Ana in her memory and in her style and lay her to rest in eternal peace.

We ask and thank you for any donation that you may find in your heart to give and also for your prayers for the family during this most difficult time.
