Funeral Expenses for Vanessa Cons
This feels like a bad dream. My sister, Vanessa Cons, was a very loving person, who put her children first and herself last. Despite any challenges she might have been faced with in life she tried her best to stay positive and meet obsticles head on. Her smile would brighten any room and will never be forgotten. She is dearly missed. Sadly and unexpectedly, on Sunday August 26, 2018, she was taken away from us. It is very difficult for my family and I to give details on her murder at this moment. Vanessa leaves behind two precious daughters, a 3 and 5 year old. We are asking for your help in this difficult time. Anything will help. All donations will go towards her funeral expenses. The donations will be handled by me, her older brother Jorge. Thank you in advance. P.S. Your prayers will do too.+ Read More
Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who has supported us financially and/or emotionally during this incredibly painful time. My family and I are touched by everyone’s support. Our family just had a small funeral service for my sister in Mount Vernon, Washington. Unexpectedly and a blessing as well, the state of Washington has helped pay for most of the funeral expenses through a program called the Prosecutor's Victims Assitance Program, due to the heinous nature of my sister's murder. We plan to have another small intimate ceremony in Orange County because it's where she was raised, lived most of her life and some immediate family members were not able to attend the service in Washington. Since the most of the funeral expenses for the Washington service were paid for by the program, the go fund me donations will be used for a service in Orange County, as well as for legal fees to establish custody of my sister’s 2 daughters through court. We wanted to update everyone who donated on this matter because we are truly grateful for your help and support and because we want to be transparent to avoid anyone feeling mislead. If anyone would like a refund due to this update please contact me via Gofundme at this time and we can make arrangements for a refund of your donation if you wish. Thank you all.
