Elaina's Funeral costs

This request is to raise funds to cover funeral costs for my daughter Elaina Penuel. She passed away suddenly on October 4th. We are like most of you and live paycheck to paycheck. We are having a very difficult time raising the money to pay for a funeral. We are not able to get a bank loan and don't have credit cards to help. Anything you can help with will be greatly appreciated. No one should ever have to bury a child, no matter how old they are.

May God bless you and your family. Make time to tell them you love them. Kiss them every chance you get. Sometimes life gets in the way of this and we forget how fragile it is and how quickly it can be taken from us. Don't allow yourself to assume someone "will always be there" or "they know how you feel". You cannot ever tell someone enough that you love them and how important they are to you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
