Mary Ames Funeral Money

My name is Jill Ames, and my mother just passed away after a very long, and painful battle with cancer. I already lost my twin brother back in 1997 when he suddenly died at eighteen due to an unknown mitral valve degeneration. Only a year later I also lost my father to colon cancer, after he also fought a long battle. Needless to say, I'm left alone to pay for these expenses, and due to her inability to work my mother owed a lot of bills when she passed that now need to be paid regardless of her not being here anymore.... We all know funerals are expensive, and due to a history of breast cancer my mom only had a very minimal life insurance policy of $5,000. That about covers the bare minimum, leaving me with thousands of dollars in bills and lawyer fees, and all the other unforeseeable costs when a loved one dies. A friend suggested I start a gofundme account and in my desperation figured it couldn't hurt. I understand everybody is fighting the good fight in their own lives, both emotionally and financially, but give me all of your monies... TOTALLY KIDDING, but seriously, where's the loot? Again, kidding..... Just a little awkward doing this thing, ya know? Anywho.... Just know I really appreciate anything you folks can do for me. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
