How do I get a refund for a Spirit flight I missed due to personal emergency?

A simple 9 step guide for solving this common Spirit problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman

Before you get started, be sure you have: Name on the ticket, Booking reference, Date of booking, Flight number, Email address on the account, Account PIN/Password
I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Luckily most airlines (Spirit included) will compensate you for the missed flight if you can prove there was actually a death in the family. This can be done by submitting a copy of the death certificate to the airline.
When you have all of your information collected, use this form to submit for a refund.
On that page click "Submit a complaint" from the drop down menu
Enter your email address in the next part
In the "Subject" line of the email write "Refund Request" or "Compensation"
Next you will want to detail the reason why you were not able to make your flight. Here is where you need to let them know about the death in the family.
Below the description bow there will be a place to enter your name, go ahead and do that.
If you have a copy of the death certificate, attach it to the email now.
Give your submission a once over to make sure it's accurate and then click "Submit" and you are done!
