Daughter Grieving Tragic death of Mother

My mother was tragically killed in a head on collision on RT 125 in Lee New hampshire the day of February 21st, at 7:20 pm.  She recently lost her job, and i was working 2 to pay the bills as i moved back in with her a year ago.  She was a full time caretaker for my disabled stepfather.   My mother was the least selfish person i knew, always making people laugh and never asking for one thing.  I am asking people to support and help me lay my mother to rest.  Its been a financial struggle, and i am soley making all arrangements.  My mother brings me strength in courage in every step that i am taking, But I cant provide financially on my own. Ive taken off work since she past, to take care of my stepfather, as well to plan and process all details involving her passing.  She was everything to me, and gave me everything even when she didnt have the means to do so.  I was always her priority, she was always making sure I was OK and safe, always calling and checking in with me.  Im still in shock and cant come to grips how fast my life is changing.  Ive always been independent, however im on my knees praying for help.  I would love to give my mother, everything she gave me...and want her to rest in peace..watching me, guiding me through this difficult process of passing only at the age of 48.  Being 27, and having a loss of a parent and dealing with all the emotions is one thing, then dealing with all the business arrangements is completly another,being her only child.  Thank you for your time, In loving memory of Mary Ella Smith.  A wonderful, kind loving mother that wanted the best for everyone around her.http://www.seacoastonline.com/articles/20140224-NEWS-140229869#.UwvU2ewg3js.facebook
