Fundraising for Jennifer Phelps funeral expenses

Jennifer Phelps passed away unexpectedly January 29th. I am starting this fundraiser in hopes that it will take some of the pressure off of her three young boys. They're going through a lot right now and need as much financial help for the funeral as possible. They are still young and aren't capable of coming up with funds on their own. Any donations are appreciated.
I wanted to update the story a little bit since this is being shared a little bit more than I imagined it would be.

I just think that since it's getting around outside of our small community that people need a little bit more information.
Jennifer is my aunt and she was murdered by her fiance on the 29th. It has hit our small-town hard nothing like this happens here.  Her boys are lost without her. Jennifer was a loving person who would help anyone if they needed it. She had a big heart. And I am just so thankful for how everyone is coming together to help her boys pay for her funeral. The last thing they need to worry about is being in debt for a funeral.
