Closure for Lexi Rose

Donation protected
On the morning of January 7, 2018, heaven gained an angel as Lexi Rose Forte, 20 years old, passed away unexpectedly in Las Vegas. She leaves behind so many loved ones including her mom, Leslie, her 17-year-old brother David and her 7-year-old sister, Macie.

Leslie must now travel to Las Vegas to sort through and pack Lexi’s belongings, retrieve Lexi’s beloved dog, Rocko, and finally, bring Lexi back home to Minnesota.

As you can imagine, travel costs are adding up quickly in addition to the funeral expenses that no parent should have to ever endure.

How they’re going to pay for all of this is the last thing the family should have to worry about.  For those that have had the unfortunate experience of planning a funeral, you know that this won’t come close to covering the expenses. But it’s a start and we're hoping that with the incredible force of ones that love Lexi, we can raise more so that all funeral & burial expenses are covered.

We are asking that friends and loved ones of Lexi rally together to support her family during this time of need whether it be by prayer, good vibes or a monetary donation. Please, share this link and join us to support Lexi’s family in this most unbearable time.

For those of you in Minnesota, we are scheduling a benefit in honor of Lexi to continue to aid in the emotional and financial support of Leslie and their family. Details of this will be shared here once they’re finalized.

Update 1/10
The family continues to be overwhelmed by the love and support received over the past few days. We appreciate those that have shared a continue to share this campaign so that we can support the family during this devastating time.

We do ask that you continue to respect the family and their privacy. Please know that we will not be responding to media requests.

Lastly, we ask that you speak of Lexi and her family with nothing but grace, compassion and respect.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Truly.
