Baby Evan Jesus Varela Ashes-to-Diamond

On the evening of Nov. 29th, my sister, Leslie, unexpectedly had her baby at 21 weeks in her pregnancy. His name was Evan Jesus Varela. She and her husband, Peter, got to spend time with Evan at the hospital and held him in their arms. While baby Evan won't get the chance to grow up with his 3 older brothers, he will always be in our hearts and was already so loved. 

This is very difficult event for any parent to process but with the permission of Leslie & Peter, I've started this campaign in hopes of raising enough money to cover the expenses of turning Evan's ashes into a memorial diamond that my sister can wear in his memory. In her own words "I want him with me always." We plan on using a company called Eterneva.

If you cannot contribute financially but have words of support for our family, please message me and I will make sure Leslie & Peter see them. They need to feel the love and support of all their friends and family right now. 

Please keep our family in your thoughts during this trying time. Hug your loved ones a little tighter today for tomorrow is not promised.
