Gayla Kelly Funeral Expenses

Yesterday the world lost a wonderful woman, Gayla Kelly. She was a wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend who loved her family dearly. Gayla began her journey into adulthood by joining the military. She served her country and helped people as much as she could. After retiring from the military she worked hard to provide for her family until she no longer could. After her working years, she continued to provide for her community and her country through various forms of community service and volunteer work. 

We are all devastated by Gayla’s loss and were not prepared for the high cost of  funeral expenses . We want to give Gayla the memorial she deserves, to honor her memory and say our last goodbyes. We have reached out to the VA and they have given her a burial plot only. I am currently asking for donations to help cover the cost of Gayla’s funeral. We need to raise about $10,000 to afford the casket, mortuary services, funeral services, and the remainder will be gifted to her husband, James Kelly for his time away from work. 

Any donations or forms of donations are welcome and we thank you so much in advance for helping us to bury Gayla who was a very loved woman.
