Final Expenses for Mom (Barbara Mantecón Cook)

As most of you know, my mother passed away on Oct 21.  She had no life insurance and barely anything in her bank account. No vehicle or properties of value. Our mother valued people more than things. We have had great support with everyone reaching out to give condolences and would like to have a platform for anyone who has offered to help in any way. It was mom's wishes to have a modest service in her memory and to be cremated. We are trying to raise the funds to grant her last wishes. We are looking to have a public viewing for all of us who loved her to grieve and a service to honor her memory and come together to share how she has impacted our lives. We are intending to cremate her after the services. Every amount, weather small or large, helps to make this happen. Travis, Caleb and I are doing as much as we can to bring her dignity and honor, please join us in creating this service for mom. Thank you so much to everyone who can help, even if it is to just send condolences. We deeply appreciate you all.
