Helping the Carlsons

Rosanne lost her 17 year old daughter in a car accident  last November. She was able to pay for the funeral with the generosity of friends, family, and the community.  However, she is now faced with another difficult situation. She wants Emma to have a plot and headstone as any mother would. With being a single mother this is nearly impossible to come up with the extra funds. Rosanne did not receive any compensation at all from the accident. 
As Rosanne is truly humbled by the graciousness of everyone who has helped her already  she did not want to ask for anything else.

Thank you to everyone in advance and may you all have a blessed holiday season.
