We struggled to pay for the costs of her burial and making sure her final wishes were granted as best we could.
Thankfully we were able to grant her wish to not be cremated but buried near her cousin and best friend. However we are still dealing with the aftermath of the costs and still owe the funeral home and those we borrowed from.
A mother's love is irreplaceable, her hugs are always a source of love and comfort and in the deeps of her heart you can always find forgiveness.
I wish nothing more that for just one more day. If you could just come back for one more day I would sit by you and cherish every moment. Instead of saying, Mom, I will see you tomorrow, I have to go. No one can know what I feel inside, but on the day you left you weren't the only one who died.
The Nurses, Doctors and Patients at the Rehab she was recuperating at all loved her. There isn't a life this beautiful soul hasn't touched and made it better. They cried with me as the shock of her sudden death was told. Told me how she was always smiling, cheering up nurses and patients alike. She was a breath of fresh spring air. The homeless around out home knew her, she was always giving them money or food, she would stopped to talk with them. When she first was admitted they would ask me how she was and hoped she would feel better soon. She had a kind and gentle spirit.
This angel on earth could even sing like a angel. She had a beautiful soprano voice that would ring out when she sung with the choir. She loved to sing, paint, play the guitar or go on long drives just breath in the world around her. She loved going out on the water or just spend some time down by the beach she she was younger and able to walk.
Always wiling to go out to help a friend, family or even a stranger. she focused her career into helping others, being there for victims or abuse or trauma. They deserve to say goodbye to her as she deserves to be remembered, loved and laid to rest as she wished to be put to rest.
I moved back with her to help her as she became more ill, but I later fell sick myself and we were both placed in wheelchairs. I lost my job, my ability to walk and now my mother. It's been very hard to cope with this all. with the loss of our mother there was a loss of income as well, and the bills are starting to pile up. She had medical bills as well. For now I am trying to just pay the funeral home what I owe them still, for they were very kind and gracious in helping with laying her to rest the way she wanted to be. If you can donate anything, any amount. Nothing is to small. I would be grateful.
