You were all a HUGE help when I found out I could not have my daughter and you paid for her cremation. I really can't express how much it meant, but if I could see you all I would hug you. Without you, I don't know what I would've done.

Although we do not have income guidelines, The TEARS Foundation exists for families who do not have other resources to pay for their child's funeral. If you need assistance, please have your funeral director contact us at the TEARS Foundation (253) 200-0944. We are here to help you.

God bless The TEARS Foundation! They were there for my daughter through all her pain, grief, agony, and financial strain. They helped her in her saddest moment in life.
