Funeral Expenses for Elaine Smith

My Grandmother, Elaine Smith was killed in a car accident on 11/23/2019 by a reckless driver. She was so important to her family, she was a wife, a mother, a grand and great-grandmother, a sister, an aunt and a dear friend. I know she worked so hard to touch the lives of everyone around her and right now it is really hard dealing with not having her here anymore, especially right before the holidays. I am taking over to organize the best that I can so please feel free to reach out to me.

We are all devastated by my grandmother, Elaine’s loss and were not prepared for what happened Saturday the 23rd, or for the high cost of a cremation and funeral expenses. We don't want my papa, Norm, to have to pay for anything at this point or worry too much about all of this, he needs time to heal and grieve.

We want to give my grandmother, Elaine the memorial she deserves, to honor her memory and say our last goodbyes. Our first need is to cover the cost of cremation and then we will begin planning a Celebration of her Life.

I am currently asking for donations to help cover the cost of her cremation. We need to raise at least $3000 by the end of this week in order to be able to afford the services. 

I have already been in touch with the facility, and I will update this page when I know more about the process so we know how and when we have to make a decision and when payment is needed.
