Sylvia Muñoz | Final Expenses/Funeral Funds

On January 19th, my mother, Sylvia, passed away unexpectedly. Nobody was prepared for it- my family and I are absolutely devastated.

My mom was a lovely individual. She always had a big smile on her face and just wanted people to be happy. She was smart, funny, and talented and always made the best out of a bad situation.

She was 65 when she passed.

My mom was born in La Paz, Bolivia, and moved to Los Angeles, California when she was a child. Ever since then, she was always drawn to the ocean.

She spent a lot of her time on the beach with her friends, and when she discovered this little beach down in South Orange County as an adult, she knew she wanted to raise her future children (my sister and I) there. So she did just that- she moved us all to Dana Point, California in 1995 to raise us. I'm so thankful I got to grow up in a beautiful town, thanks to her.

She mentioned before that when it was her time to go, she wanted to be cremated and sprinkled into the ocean- so that's what's going to happen for her as her final wish.

My only prayer is that I hoped she knew how deeply she was loved by her family and friends. To know she's gone now is a pain I can't quite describe, and I want us all to remember the wonderful memories we made with her and the best version of herself.

It's going to be a long road ahead of us- I'm reaching out for help to ease the burden financially during this difficult time for my family and I.

The funds will go directly to all of her final expenses and funeral costs. My family and I extend our deepest gratitude to those who offer their support to us during this difficult time.

Thank you again.

- Amy and family
