A father's sudden passing

My best friend from elementary school, Cheryl Sheldon Jones lost her husband unexpectedly on January 9th, 2018 . Her husband was out of work when this tragedy occurred. His life insurance policy was tied to his occupation so there is no life insurance and they had been living on savings while he looked for employment. Cheryl has been a stay at home Mom since the kids were born and will need to enter the work force for the first time in a very long time. She has two dependents living at home that relied on the financial support of the father. One child has special needs and is starting to learn how to drive and will be trying to work for the first time as well and the other has just finished law school and his preparing for the bar exam.  Funds are needed immediately to help with funeral costs, mortgage payments, utilities and everyday living expenses. You may not know Cheryl personally, but if you know me you know I wouldn't ask if this weren't incredibly important to me.  Please help me ease their burden during this tragic time. If you can contribute anything to help them get on their feet I would be grateful from the bottom of my heart. Blessings to those who can help.
