Help Lay Sammy Nusbaum To Rest

On March 13, 2018, we all were shocked to learn that we lost our dear friend, daughter, niece, cousin, and granddaughter, Samantha Nusbaum, in death. As her aunt, I was asked to set up a fund to help with all the expenses that come with an unexpected loss. The family is worried they won't be able to have her remains released to them if they cannot pay for the costs accrued. Also, they desperately need help with upcoming funeral expenses.  Samantha was such a sweet young lady to know. She took special care to always help out children younger than her, and did so with a genuine smile! I hope others will share some the wonderful qualities they got to know in Samantha. She was growing into such a beautiful and lovely person; I was eager to see where her life would lead. Sammy was born and raised in Cody, WY, and was living in Colorado with her dad. Although I didn't know her close friends personally, I could tell by her posts on social media that she was a very loyal friend to those she loved dearly. Nobody should be facing death at 16.  Sammy, from an early age, suffered from seizures. She passed away after a seizure, which suffocated her after she fell out of bed. If any would like to help pay for funeral expenses, and for the wages her parents are losing while taking care of this tragedy, please feel free to donate on here, or leave a comment for an email to use with PayPal. If donating through PayPal, please attach a note for reason of funds so that I can make sure it gets to the right place.  We look forward to seeing your memories and happy moments with Sammy. Even if you're unable to donate, please feel free to share your memories.  Thank you!
