For Alyssa-Heartstrings to Infinity


Even when death comes at an expected time, covering the end of life expenses can be difficult. In the case where one so young departs from us decades too soon, those costs not only are unexpected, but unplanned at a time of utter heartbreak.

My brother Jim and his wife Val lost their precious daughter Alyssa on March 28, 2018. This GoFundMe fund is being established to help them meet the necessary expenses at what can only be described as the darkest time of their life.

Please open up your hearts and give what you can so that their concerns for the expenses can be lightened while they work through this most crushing of events.

Funds raised will go to help pay for funeral expenses, and anything that may remain will go toward a memorial fund in Alyssa's name.
