A Mother's Grief

A mother is not supposed to have to bury her 19 year old child. I was blessed with five beautiful sons, and now I am losing one to a catastrophic brain injury. I am sitting here in this hospital room watching my baby waste away. My beautiful son is leaving me...has left me I should say. Now, l have to bury my sweet boy, and I have no money to do it. This was not supposed to happen to him, to me, to any of us. I don't know how long he will be here in body with us, but we need all the help we can get. I know I should have money saved, but I never, ever in a million years would have expected tragedy to strike like this. I am ashamed, heartbroken, and shattered, and I am pleading for your help so I can give my baby boy a proper sendoff. Please help if you can. Any little bit will help. Thank you, and please keep my family in your prayers as well.
