Memorial fund for Jocelyn "Binks"

Last night Patty and Mario Ruiz lost their youngest daughter, Jocelyn, lovingly known as Binks, in a house fire. She was the 6-year-old sister of my beautiful niece, Jasmine, who is battling second degree burns all over her arms and face. Jasmine is my brother Jason's daughter, and she is the toughest 12-year-old I know. I would be most grateful for any amount you can give to help them with medical, transportation, rebuilding, and living expenses as they face this disaster. Will post updates on Jasmine's condition, as well as their specific needs, as I learn more.
