Betsy's Funeral Expenses

My name is Dewey Thompson and I just lost the love of my life; my soulmate.

In July of 2014, Betsy said "Yes!" when I asked her to grow old with me and share our hearts and our lives together; to be my wife. It was like watching God smile on each of us who had each gone through our own life's rough road. She was perfect, and I am forever grateful to be able to call myself her dearest friend and husband.

Last Wednesday, April 27th (the day before my birthday), she called me at work and could only say "I need you!" when I immediately rushed home only to find her without a pulse and not breathing. Despite performing CPR until the paramedics arrived, they could not resuscitate her, and my world was instantly shattered - my love was gone, and I had to pull her son out of school to tell him the awful news.

She was laid out for viewing on Monday May 2nd, and left me with funeral expenses that I just don't know how to come up with.

The funeral home says that they give 30 days to pay the bill in full, and it would help lighten the burden already placed on me by her passing.

It would mean the world to me if you could please help me if you can, and allow me to focus on the sudden change in direction that life has chosen.

Thank you!
