She leaves behind 4 children (ages 2-16) and many friends and family that loved her very much.
We have been overwhelmed with wonderful sentiments about my sister on facebook. It's amazing to see the beautiful impressions that she left on everyone that she knew.
Deja was very upbeat and bubbly. She told almost everyone she would see that she loved them. She greeted people with hugs, smiles, and laughter.
We are raising funds to help my mother and family with the funeral costs. Deja left unexpectedly so there wasn't really a plan for that. My mother is also battling pancreas cancer and is doing as best as one can do with that prognosis.
Many have asked where they can send money to help with all of the expenses and I thought this was a good place to start. Thank you all for the love and support you have shown so far. If you knew Deja then she loved you. That's the truth. The rest of our family does too. Any little bit will help even if it's $5. I will be sure that my Mom gets all of the money and any that is left we will use to help support Deja’s children.
Thanks again. Love you all.
