My Mother RIP



☆☆☆☆She's has passed away, I love you mom! Jeff and Timmy too, and everyone else, we all love you!☆☆☆☆☆

My mother Kathy Hopkins Briere is in the hospital with terminal cancer, receiving blood transfusions and we think she might need to start kidney dialysis, in order to hang on through mothers day. In severe pain for over 5 months. January 9th 2016, my father David Briere passed away from terminal cancer, and when he passed, several bills did not get paid right away, as we were struggling to stay on our feet. My father's life insurance cleared up debt and medical bills, and paid the back mortgage payments that were due, electric etc. We had missed a payment on my mother's life insurance policy and when we tried to pay, her policy had lapsed and was terminated, and in her health now, no company will cover her. Life is really happening fast right now, and it's enough to make your hair fall out. We are just looking to put my mother to rest when the time comes, and want to be able to tell her before she goes that she doesn't have to worry about dying, and who has to pay for it, I just want to let her go easy. I told her at the hospital that when a caterpillar gets old, and it's body is ready to give out, it turns into a butterfly, and didn't really die but rather transformed into a weightless winged creature, and the pain from the metamorphosis is gone. My goal was based on what it cost for my father's funeral service, cremation, and a decorative box to hold his ashes. Any extra help is appreciated, even just sending us prayers and positive thoughts.

This video was from 5/6/16 at 2 or 3am. They kicked us out at about 4:30am and we plan to go right back after we sleep a little (we have been awake over 24hours) to be with her, hopefully at least until Mother's Day. Anyone out there who can do it, give your mom a huge hug this mothers day, as you never know where life may go. And if you fall, hopefully everyone is there to catch you and help you to your feet.
