Ariane's Funeral Expenses

Ariane Alisa Selmon was a loving daughter, sister, aunt and phenomenal friend. She suffered from asthma and respiratory issues throughout her life. Unexpectedly on Saturday, February 11, 2017 she passed due to a fatal asthma attack at the age of 28. Doctors worked so hard but God had other plans for our beloved Ariane. Heaven has gained a true angel today!

There are no words to explain the loss we feel or the heartbreak we have experienced. We lost a genuine, adorable, fun spirited, kind hearted, sweet soul. Ariane was without a doubt the brightest light to everyone around her. Her smile and bright personality was contagious no matter what kind of day you were having – she always knew how to make someone smile. She was surrounded by so many people who loved and respected her. Her smile and humbleness will never be forgotten.

Ariane light shines so bright and has spread and touched so many hearts. She will be tremendously missed. We will never forget her smiles, warm hugs and genuine soul. 

We thank you all for the sincere calls and messages, kind words and fond memories. Ariane was loved on this earth by so many people. She will be watching over us all as our guardian angel! She will forever be greatly missed but we will never forget her or the love, light and laughter she brought into our lives.

We ask that friends, family and coworkers come together in helping raise funds for her funeral expenses in this time of sadness and bereavement. Sadly, she did not have insurance implemented as of yet with her new position. We will appreciate any monetary value, no matter what amount to assist in the endeavors of her funeral expenses. Your thoughtful donations will be
gratefully appreciated.
