Maya Tarbet funeral expenses

My niece, Maya Tarbet, was just 13 years old when she had a sudden unexpected brain hemorrhage caused by an aneurysm. The ambulances rushed her to the hospital and family and friends prayed for her recovery, but God has called her home. She passed away on November 12th, 2017.  

Her family is devastated. She has 6 younger siblings that will miss her dearly. Her sweet devoted parents, Ariane and David, are crushed. One minute she was a beautiful, talented teenager, full of life, and the next minute she was on life support while doctors tried to save her.

While her family grieves and prepares for a funeral, we are reaching out to the community for help. She has a large family and many relatives all over the country that would like to attend her funeral, but they cannot afford the last minute plane tickets. Ariane and David really need the support of their extended family members at this time.

Any donation you can make will help bring Maya's relatives to her funeral.  Any remaining money will go to helping pay for the funeral costs. We are grateful for any and all support, even if you can only give a few kinds words. Feel free to also share any positive memories or photos of Maya if you know her personally as well as any kind words for her parents.

Maya, you were so young to leave us. You were an angel while you were here, always sharing love with those around you. We love you, Maya! We will miss you until we meet again in heaven.
