Support from the community has poured in over the past week. Zacarias recently ended her GoFundMe raising money for funeral expenses after receiving $300,000 in donations.

A funeral for the seven family members will be held on Saturday, Feb. 19 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at 50 E. Azure Drive in North Las Vegas, from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Zacarias says she would love for the public to attend.

Zacarias says President Joe Biden is expected to send an American flag from Washington, D.C. as a gift for her family. 13 Action News reached out to the White House to get more information about their plans.
