Funds for funeral

My name is Dieshe Goodson 23, One of Malaysia Goodson brothers. My sister was recently in an accident in Manhattan, New York on January 28, 2019 that took her life. My family is still trying to gather up the pieces of the puzzle to figure out what happened to cause this tragic event. From what we can gathering is that my sister Malaysia Goodson was with her 1-year old daughter on 53rd street in Manhattan Ny, on her way home with a stroller and some shopping bags. She then slipped down a flight of steps with her 1 year old. According to eyewitnesses and reporters they said as Malaysia Goodson went tumbling down the flight of stairs with her daughter and trying to protect her baby from being seriously injured, as any mother would do. But who would think that a fall could cost this young mother her life? My sister to me is a Hero, she loved her daughter to the end and died trying to ensure she was unharmed. Even though she was pronounced dead at the scene her baby, my niece was not harmed and came out without a scratch. To many of those who know Malaysia Goodson they know that she was very playful and a happy person, but she was also protective over her family. To know that my sister past trying to protect her daughter gives me a sense of ease, but it still can’t heal my bruised heart. This has heavied a lot hearts & has happened so sudden; my family and close friends are dealing with this accordingly. I would love for her to get the proper ceremony. I am not asking for your last cause I understand everybody have situations of their own but if you could help me please lay my sister to rest in peace, it would help me be at peace knowing I did what she would have done for me. All help is welcomed and appreciated. Thank you in advance for any help you are able to give.
