Burial Plot and Funeral Cost

Yvette Carrasquillo was a loving, caring and generous mother, friend and humanitarian. During her time with us she struggled through many challenges. She became a widow after loosing the love of her life. Although, heart broken and distraught she put her personal needs, wants aside and lived to raise her five children (grand-children) to be the most humane, kind and respectful human beings.

She loved all living things, people of all walks; she loved trees, the smell of grass, all animals, and the sound of the flowing river. She taught us to be unselfish, kind, compassionate, and see the positivity in all aspects of lives. She chose to not live in a materialistic world, but rather to focus on love, family, support and paying it forward to others.

After a relentless battle in fighting against cervical cancer, she unfortunately passed away on Wednesday, 11/30/17. She fought with every cell in her body to live for another day, and gave us her all she had and more. At this time we come together to honor our warrior mother to give her the best funeral possible. Sadly she did not have any financial savings or life insurance and as difficult as this may be for us we are turning to those we love and she loved for donations. Any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated. We thank you all in advance for your love, support and time.
