Serafina aka "Nugget" or "Ragnar" was Melissa's pride and joy. She could never get over how cute she was. It is heartbreaking to know that Serafina will not have the chance to get to know her mother, but I'm sure Matt and everyone close to them will fill her heart with stories of her mother. Serafina is both the unluckiest and luckiest girl in the world. Even though her time with Melissa was cut incredibly too short, Serafina had the best mom in the world.
This GoFundMe page is 100% dedicated to Serafina's future. All money raised will go directly to Serafina's college education. I, her cousin Lindsay, will actually be opening a 529 education plan for her, so the account will be open until Serafina needs it for college. Therefore, if you would like to contribute in the future you may do so at any point in the next 16 years. It comforted Mel to know that Serafina and Matt still had an army of loved ones who would be there for them.
Thanks for reading, and please keep Matt and Serafina, and everyone in Melissa and Matt's family in your prayers.
