Death of Leyla Cox

My mother turned 53 on June 9th 2019. She was in the Punta Cana, Dominican Republic celebrating her birthday. Her vacation was set from the June 5 through June 12. She passed away from a heart attack on June 10th 2019. Her body is still in the Dominican Republic and I have been fighting everyday to get her home. I need help. I need help raising money to fly my Mother Leyla Cox back home to the United States, I need help going to her place in Staten Island NY and moving her stuff, I need help for funeral/memorial cost for both NY and back home in TN, I need help fulfilling her wishes of her ashes being spread in the Florida Keys. I know I am asking a lot but I am overwhelm with the weight that's been put on my shoulders. Please if anyone will help me with the death of my Mother I will be forever grateful, I feel like I'm alone in this and I can't do this on my own. I love my Mother more than life itself and I just want her last wishes to be fulfilled and have her home back in the USA. Thank you.39940782_1560549178424643_r.jpeg
