My godson, Jordy, was killed in a car accident on 9/11/19 in Eastern Oregon on their way through a challenging and dangerous area of road. Three vehicles piled up on a corner. His mother and older brother survived - but Jordy went to heaven I promised him I would do everything in my power to be the best godmother ever, forever, and I was going to be there for anything he ever needed. I need your help!! I need to make sure he has the beautiful burial any little 4 month old little angel deserves. Please help me raise funds quickly so I can arrange his services. I wasn’t prepared financially for this tragedy and while he has family, siblings, and others - this is my job. Please help me raise money for flowers, invitations, food, casket, urn, heck - I don’t know what’s involved in all of this but any help you can offer is appreciated. I love all of you.
