Funeral and travel fees for Tiana Sweetwood

My nephew Chase was killed in a tragic military accident July 30, 2020 off the coast of San Clemente, CA during what was supposed to be a routine training exercise. It was the day before his 19th birthday. Their AAV (amphibious assault vehicle) began to take on water and 8 men did not escape, Chase being one of them. My sister lives in Portland, OR and will need to travel to San Diego for the services to bury her son. We are asking for donations that will allow her to pay for travel fees and time off work to grieve. Our family is beyond devastated. Chase was one of the good ones in this life, and he was taken far too soon. Please keep my sister and her other children in your prayers as they navigate these unimaginable emotions. No mother should have to bury their child. Thank you for your love, support and donations. It’s greatly appreciated.
