Melanie Labau's Final Expenses and Memorial

My sister passed away Monday afternoon 1/7/2020. She was admitted to the hospital on Christmas eve after she was found immobilized and unable to talk. Christmas day she went on life support and we began to fear the worst. She fought to survive for over a week, but in the end she was taken from this world. 

She was a vibrant person, always willing to enjoy life to the fullest, and light up everyone who wanted to come along for the ride. An explorer who enjoyed new experiences, and the wonder of the natural world. She knew how to make others laugh, and at 41 it's hard to believe she is gone. It's hard to think that her light is extinguished from the world, and today the world feels colder. She was a loving and caring person, and one that will be greatly missed. 

Left behind are her 4 children, and devoted husband. No one expected this tragedy. So, we are now trying to cover her final expenses and Memorial. Any help would be very much appreciated to help ease the burden on the family. God bless, and remember the good times.
