Funeral Funds for Eileen McDonald

It is with heavy hearts we share that my Aunt Eileen McDonald, 67, was killed in a tragic accident on Saturday, May 27th.  She was struck and dragged over 200 feet by a car in Jersey City where she grew up (see article below). 

As some of you may know funeral costs are unexpected and extremely expensive.  We set up this account to help my father and uncle not have to worry about the large expenses they are facing during this horrible time in our lives.  In addition, to assist my Uncle Gerry (Eileen was his caretaker) whose health is compromised and requires assistance. 

We greatly appreciate whatever you can contribute and thank everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

With love and gratitude,
Melanie and the McDonald family
