Funeral Arrangements for Sandra Diaz (mom)

Hello Everyone,

My name Is Tonie Tirado and I am trying to raise money for my moms Funeral arrangements.  This is extremely hard for me to write because my mom was my world and a warrior Queen.

My mom was more then just a mom but  a teacher and a friend,  She was always friendly to every one and would help anyone that needed help the est way she could.

My mom had me when i was 14 and a year later had my Brother Albert, several years later had my younger brother mikey and in 1990 had my little sister Sheri.

My mom never had much but she did everything to provide for us. She had so many accomplishments in her life. one of those accomplishments was becoming a licensed phlebotomist, CNA and a home nurse.

She worked for over 20 years as a waitress at Yale University Restaurant and retired after she was diagnosed with congenital heart disease.  since being diagnosed she moved to florida where my sister has been able to take care of her. sadly within the last year our moms health declined severely. 

Last night at 2am Saturday May 11, 2019 our mom went into cardiac arrest. she is now in ICU at Kindred Hospital in South Florida. 

we were told that if she has another cardiac arrest she may not make it.  Her heart is at 5%  and her blood pressure is at 114/64 and slowly decreasing. 

we have decided to prepare ourselves in the dark moment. I am trying to get all the siblings together since we all live in different states and I live in Canada. 

I will stay here until my mom passes and sadly am not making any money since i have no vacation time.  We are asking for $3000 USD or roughly $5000 cad..

All the funds will be used to create a memorial of life for my mom in Florida and in Canada.  We will most Likely cremate our mom and scatter her ashes in the ocean. I will also have an Urn for her and will be placed in the  Buddhist Temple in Canada where I live, so I can be close to her.

I will be handling all the arrangements and have very little time left to make this happen.

I know some of you may not have much but please donate anything you can. 

Please feel free to contact me directly or email me for details. We don't have much time left. 

Thank You,


Tonie. Sheri, Mikey, Albert
