Fin's End of Life Expenses

A strong woman, bold and full of spirit, left the natural world she blessed with many gifts of love and respect.  She didn't live a life that many would consider a normal life by any means. Instead, she rose above a life of monotony,  working for first world luxuries and comforts, and complying with the confines of society. She chose the path which she trailblazed that took a lot of hard work, conviction, patience and many trying times. 

Her focus being the sole belief: it is our duty as humans, who were given dominion over the life and earth of this planet, to maintain the natural world and give back what we take.

Fin was misunderstood by some, and loved by many. What people didn't understand is that she wasn't trying to divide herself from others-she was trying to help us truly live and give life in return.  She was blunt, but she was honest. That honesty is a rare gem to find and was priceless to those who did understand and love her.

She taught many of us how to find ourselves...find life. Her pure soul understood the life that is in the ground beneath us, the trees and plants among us and the animals around us. While many of us feel lost in this moment of sadness, we must remember her trails, continue to seed the earth in her remembrance and honor her life's work. 

What we are asking for is funds for her cremation. Myself and the rest of her family want to do what's right for her in her eyes.  Funds are low and we're pulling it together the best we can. Our goal is to work closely with the people in the hoop that she tended to and celebrate her life by returning her to the earth, which in turn continues her life through death. She will always be among us, her soul alive within the beating heart of the forest.

Any donation would be very much appreciated. Thank you for reading and honoring this amazing woman!
