Funeral services for Erika Rocha

$8,455 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 93 people in 29 months
This campaign is to raise funds to give my big sister Erika Rocha a proper funeral service. Erika was in the prison system since the age of 16 and battled with depression for many years. We love her so much, and it hurts our family terribly to know that if we can not come up with the funds that her body will be put with John and Jane Does in a mass cremation and we'll never be able t have her back. We are a very low-income family, and simply have no possible way to pay for the funeral services. We only want to be abe to bring my big sister home one last time. We need the funds immediately, and we will be incredibly grateful just to have our her back. For my siblings and I the pain of losing a sister is immense, but for my mother the pain of losing a child is unbearable. Please help us bring my sister home so she can be with us once again.Thank you -the family of Erika Rocha

I'd like to thank everyone who donated to Erika's funeral expenses. Our family is extremely grateful that we can give my sister the proper services that she deserves. I am having Linda Reza, who is Erika's step mother and my mother withdraw the money from our fund raising so that she can pay for Erika's services. Again thank you to everyone who donated, we can not thank you enough.

Hi my name is Frances, you don't know me but I am Ericka's cousin from his brothers side. I know that we have not been there for my cousin but it really saddens our family to know what happened to her. I'm not sure if today is the last day for the service but some of our family members would love to go and pay respects and say a finale goodbye. Can you please message me if it is ok. If not we totally understand that this is something hard for the family and respect the privacy of this matter. Thanks you so much!

This is from the mom of Amber Riley (who is incarcerated in Chowchilla). She is so sorry for your loss.
