Her close friend, FX artist Brian Moore, says, “Sadly, Maila died with very little means … so a few friends, along with Heather Saenz and I, are making funeral arrangements for her with the cooperation of a distant niece of Maila’s.

Heather and I will also give Maila her last ride in our 1951 Cadillac hearse; she dug the coach very much, and it’s our privilege to be able to give her this last honor.” They’re trying to raise $8,000 for a proper funeral via a MySpace page, which is planned for mid-February.
