Crystal Sosa-Rea's Memorial Fund

Crystal Natividad Sosa-Rea was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 16.  She has gone through many treatments and flare ups for the past 17 years.  Many times Crystal would bear the pain just so she can raise her children the best she can.  Crytal has a husband Gilbert Rea, who fell in love with her in 6th grade.  Together they had three children, Karissa age 14, Iryie age 12 and Jr. age 10.  Crystal and her family have lived in Lompoc for the past 6 years.  In 2012 Crystal contracted menegitis and lost her hearing, she was fitted with an Ocholar hearing implant and since then her illness had worsen.  Her body could not fight the infections anymore.  
Crystal started having seisures and on the evening of November 3rd, her heart gave out.
Crystal was a very giving person to all who knew her, even if it was the last piece of food or money she had.
Please help the family raise money to bury.
God Bless
