Funeral Expenses for Soldier's Mom

Hello Everyone,

 Recently we had a member of our unit fly home due to the unexpected death of his Mother, Laurie Raya. Staff Sergeant Erik Raya ( a Fellow Night Stalker) received an emergency Red Cross message saying that his Mother had passed away on January 12th, 2018 during his current deployment. We decided to start this GoFundMe page to help raise him money so he could put together a proper ceremony for his mother in his time of need. The money will not only help pay for funeral expenses, but also help with moving the household.
