Help cover final expenses of Briana Kromer

It is with a heavy heart that I even have to write this. Briana Kromer, 21 from West Penn PA, currently stationed in Fort Still, Oklahoma an active duty US Army fire control specialist passed away suddenly at her fiancé s home in Palmerton, PA while home on leave from the Army. She came home on December 17th and was set to leave back to protecting our freedoms on January 2nd.
Her mother, Michelle and Bri were out shopping Christmas Eve. She went to church then we went to domaggios to eat and then to her boyfriends. They got engaged last night. She got a shower around 1 and was in for awhile. Her fiancé checked on her and she was passed out and unconscious. They worked on her for over an hour but couldn't save her.
I have known Bri since she was a baby, and her parents, Michelle and Dave for 30 years. No parent should ever have to bury a child, especially not one who risks her life for our great country. I cannot fathom losing a child, especially on Christmas day. Bri's mom said this..."She was our pride and joy. My best friend. I Dont know how we are going to live without her".
I am at a loss for words as this beautiful, soldier, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and fiancé is no longer with us, but with our father in heaven. She was leading such a promising life protecting us as a US soldier.
Please help ease the burden for her parents so they can give Bri the proper and dignified funeral she so deserves. Any amount of a donation will greatly help this family, and if you are not able to donate, please share. Bri, may God be with you, and thank you for your service.
