funeral service expenses for Elizabeth

Donation protected
Hello, my name is Melisa Rodriguez and I am Elizabeth Rodriguez's niece. My aunt wanted me to reach out to family and friends for any help as she was dealing with
and suffering from many life altering changes that she was not prepared for.
She was indeed struggling knowing that she was leaving behind her three children to deal with funeral expenses.

Please let me tell you a little about her:

Elizabeth also known as Tina is 44 years old and just celebrated her birthday in November. She was born and raised in Stamford, CT. She was told that she could never have kids and after losing her parents she fought to have and was blessed with her three children.
Although she was born with and has experienced many medical issues genetic in nature (through no fault of her own) she nonetheless persevered leading an overall good life.
She has undergone numerous hospitalizations through the years in addition to multiple heart surgeries and surgeries on her spine and for her club feet which was discovered at birth. She has dealt with type 2 diabetes and congestive heart failure throughout her life and was experiencing both heart and kidney failure with her heart working at only 5% capacity. At this point she no longer continues to fight to stay alive. Elizabeth gained her wings to be with our Heavenly Father on December 26,2023. She was the glue that held our family together and this has weighed heavily on all our hearts. 

We are kindly seeking donations for funeral service expenses. I will also be selling pies, cookies and cupcakes to raise money so please feel free to donate by purchasing a baked good. All money earned will go to this fund. Prayers are deeply appreciated as well and please feel free to share this page with your family and friends.
Thank you,

2 Timothy 4:7-8
New international version 

7 I HAVE FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the lord, the righteous judge, will award to me in that day- and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
