Help my family bring Sierra home and funeral expenses. She was a 34-year-old loving mother and very intelligent. Her life was cut short by a selfish act and she is hundreds of miles away any help you can give would be appreciated. She is from Maryland and was living in Wisconsin she recently had a baby who is 19 months old now and our family goal is to get her and him back home where they belong.
