Funeral Expenses For My Sissy Tonya

My sister Tonya passed away at 3 am on Wednesday September 26th, 2018, she was 27 years old. She got a horrible infection and suffered 2 major strokes that resulted in her being unable to regain consciousness. We had to make the painful decision to stop life support and let her pass so that she would not suffer any more pain than she already had. Tonya was the most amazing dancer and a star basketball player. She had a sometimes too loud laugh and couldn't sing songs on time to save her life, which are weirdly the things I know I'll miss most. She was the most selfless person I have ever known and possessed a spirit that never was dulled. She has a beautiful baby girl named Haylee Jo that I and my family have had the pleasure of raising. Haylee inherited all of Tonya's best qualities so I know that she will be unstoppable in all the best ways. Grieving the loss of a daughter/sister/mother brings unimaginable pain and just when you think you can't take it anymore you have to pull it together to figure out cremation, a service and time off work. Any donations will be greatly appreciated to help my family focus on the love and healing instead of worrying about financial burdens. Any money left over will go into a college fund for Haylee Jo.
