Funeral Costs for Jesenia (Purple)

This is the funeral/memorial account for our beloved Jesenia (Purple) Mendoza. 

Jesenia (Purple) Mendoza; daughter; sister; friend; fashion queen; lover of techno and all things black; panda enthusiast; sailor moon fan; I could go on and on, suddenly passed on Saturday, September 8th. She is remembered by her brother, father, a dog (London), and a grieving group of people, whom you could say loved her as family.

Purple was one of the greats. She was one of those people who touched every single soul she encountered. No one could deny that intense energy she brought into a room. Her fun loving spirit was contagious; she was great at making others laugh, helping others find the joy in the hardest of places. She made us all feel accepted, loved, understood, beautiful, etc.  That brilliant smile, that laugh that was too beautiful to miss....She loved so many of you and she loved hard. 

This is extremely painful to write, but Purple needs us now. We lost this incredibly beautiful soul, far sooner than we could have ever imagined. We would love to provide a proper service for her and her family, any and all financial help will directly go to her brother, Ony, to cover all of the funeral/memorial expenses. 

Please share this along with your stories, pictures, etc with Purple, we need as much help as we can. 

Any updates on services will be posted.
