I couldn't believe the news... someone in the prime of their life, a young adult, only 25 was struck down for no apparent reason.  We didn't really get along but I know she was loved by her friends and family alike.  It's so sad to see someone so young die.  I pray for her friends and family.  I hope she is in a better place now.  Just the other day I was complaining about something stupid never realizing that it could have been my last moment... that it was someone's last moment.   This really helps to put things into perspective.  We need to stop taking everything for granted and live each day as if it were our last, because it very well could be.

On September 30, 2011 our twenty five year old sister Melissa Hafoka passed on to her next life due to unknown causes. An autopsy report will be performed to give our family and doctors the answers to why Melissa's heart stopped. Melissa was just like most young adults in her mid twenties, she maintained an apartment that she shared with her boyfriend Chris Fredrickson. Melissa also didn't have medical insurance, an established savings account, life or accidental death insurance like most lower income famlies. Our family just wants to give our sister a funeral and lay her to rest. Nobody expects a young lady in her twenties to pass away suddenly and no parent plans to bury their own child before themselves, for that reason our family wasn't prepared. We are asking to help us put our sister to rest.
Anything will help and everything adds up. All donations are greatly appreciated
We've created an account at Wells Fargo.
