Rest For the Weary

Hi everyone! I’m fundraising money for my boyfriend’s grandmother’s funeral. Ruth Young was eccentric. A loving mother, sister, grandmother, and friend. After losing her husband in late October of 2018, she refused to let the weight of life drag her down, and instead looked to the amazing grace of our father God for her strength and refuge: Not only was Ruth an amazing child of God, but she was stern, fierce, and had an unbreakable will. At the age of 73, widowed and having lost her loving husband, she continued to raise two young boys on her own. We now know she’s in the best place she can be- at home with our father God, along with her husband and other family whom have passed from this plane. Ruth young passed away last night in her sleep, leaving behind a family that cherished her presence. The cause of death was supposedly from untreated bone cancer and over use of oxygen. I ask that you keep his family in your prayers as they are financially unable to put together a funeral for her at this moment. All funds donated will be put directly towards the wake and funeral. Any help you can give us is greatly appreciated. If you’d rather make a donation to the funeral home, it’s the Columbia Funeral Home in Mississippi. Thank you for any help you can give!
