On Wednesday, December 13, 21 year old Sarah Papenheim was fatally stabbed by her roommate in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
Sarah was living in Rotterdam and studying psychology with an emphasis in suicide, which took her 21-year-old brother's life three years ago.
It's going to be very expensive for travel costs for the family and to bring Sarah home, not to mention any funeral and burial costs involved. Costs are estimated to be around $40,000.
Sarah was a beautiful, vibrant young woman and a talented musician with a smile that could light up a room. She played with some of the best musicians on the scene in the Twin Cities and had many close relationships with them. Her presence is irreplaceable.
Your gift will help alleviate some of the financial burden of this tragedy. Any amount helps.
