»I’m really devastated about her passing but want to help her family give her an amazing funeral. There has been a lot of misinformation floating around out there. Rather than discuss the details of her passing, I hope her fans and industry friends will donate to help cover her hospital bills and funeral. Her family and I would really appreciate anything you can give, no matter how small.«
