Funeral Service Expenses

My mother Frances Russell is the most beautiful person you'd ever want to know. She was a loving mother to her own kids as well as a mother to many who she didn't give birth to. She was a loving great grandmother, grandmother, aunt, sister, cousin and so much more. She gave so much of herself to so many people. She touched many lives through her countless hours of community service in her lifetime.

Sadly on May 27th, 2017, she succumbed to a 2 year bout with pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately her insurance will not be covering the cost of the services. So, our family is asking for any assistance to offset these costs. Whatever amount your heart can find to help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, The Russell Family.
