Cynthia Southern's Final Expenses

$2,330 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 1 month
This morning at 10:00 a.m. Christmas Day 2018, I (Vern Southern) went in to our bedroom to wake Cynthia up for breakfast. She had past away sometime this morning. I last spoke to her around 6:00 a.m. I asked her when she wanted to be woken up and she told me to just let her sleep in.

Cynthia suffered from diabetes for 14 years and that is the suspected cause of death. Because this is Christmas Day the Medical Examiners office will start their investigation tomorrow. When I know the cause of death I will pass the information on to all of you.

I am not doing very well. Cynthia is my whole world and her passing leaves me with no real reason to live except to take care of her final wishes. In discussions we had in the past she told me she wanted to be cremated and have her ashes spread in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I will be taking care of that.

Because I am suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease, Stage 4, I have been unable to work. Cynthia's job was our sole source of income and insurance. Without medical insurance I do not expect to live much longer. It doesn't really matter because Cynthia was my only reason to live.

Because of my medical expenses and the out-of-pocket costs we have no savings left. I have no choice but to ask you, her friends for financial help with her final expenses. I am starting a Go fund me for that help. I will add the link below.

@Janet Geuy I am okay. Thank you for asking. I've been involved with all the paperwork did I need to fill out for all of Cynthia stuff. I'm sorry I have not posted more here. I'm still trying to raise enough to have a memorial service for her. I'm still about $300 shy. Thank you all for your donations. It is greatly appreciated. I will post more soon. Vern Southern

I am not sure if I am going to be able to have a memorial services for Cynthia. The donations have dropped off and I am still about $500 shy of the amount I will need.

If you can find it in your heart can you please donate a little more so I can give this wonderful lady a proper memorial service. Thank you all for what you have given so far, it is greatly appreciated.

I received the Certificate of Death today. As I promised I will tell you the official cause of death. "Complications of morbid obesity including diabetes mellitus".

Definition of diabetes mellitus: a variable disorder of carbohydrate metabolism caused by a combination of hereditary and environmental factors and usually characterized by inadequate secretion or utilization of insulin.

She passed away in her sleep, in a warn bed with a cat next to her. When I go I hope it is something similar. I still can't get through a day without crying about losing her. I'm eleven years older, I should have been the one who went first.

I am Home. I was in The Medical Center of Aurora since the night of December 26th. My lunges had built up a lot of fluid, caused by my Stage 4 Kidney Disease. I was on Dialysis for four days. I have to go back in to the hospital soon for more treatments and procedures.

I managed to talk them in to letting me out for a few days so I can get some of Cynthia's last wishes taken care of. Even though I have raised the minimum amount needed for me to give Cynthia Southern The cremation she wanted. I am hoping to get enough donations so I can give her a small service.

I am going through Newcomer Cremations, Funerals & Receptions. 190 Potomac St, Aurora, CO 80011. They have the lowest cost services. I know you have all given to her Final Expenses Fund but I still need to ask you to help me. The lady deserves some small service. She did so much for so many. Can you please find it in your heart to give a few dollars more?
