Family in need, Karen's funeral

This is a fund for the loss of Karen Wilson. She died June 27th, 2016 of heart failure at the age of 38. Karen was very loved and we did not see this coming. This is one of the roughest patches that the kids and her husband, Andrew,  will have to go through. We are struggling financially, and we are unable to pay for the funeral.  Any help you can offer at this time would help tremendously.

      Karen leaves behind her husband, Andrew, 12 year old daughter, Alyiah, 10 year old son, Aiden, and18 year old step daughter, Kristin. Andrew and Karen were together for 14 years. He tried very hard to be there for her and help her and love her with all of his heart. Even though there were ups and downs she was cared for and loved dearly by everyone. Karen was a great kind-hearted and loving mother who never gave up. She was always happy and always knew how to make everyone else happy and just be peaceful. She supported all of us and loved us all and now we face the fact that she is gone. The family is devastated by this loss. No one thought this day would come so fast.

Again, any kind of support will be so greatly appreciated. Andrew also suffers from high blood pressure and the stress of this all is rough and with anything you all can help with will help relieve some of his stresses.  

        The family will be thankful for anything that can help them afford a proper funeral for Karen.

Thank you all for your love and support
