A True Blue friend: Help 4 Jen Burnette's Funeral

Her name is Jennifer Burnette: A Daughter, A Fighter, a Animal-Lover, a Wife, a Care-Taker, a Mother of many, and a True-Blue Friend. Jennifer ("Blue" as many of her friends knew her) was dutiful in everything she put her hand too; from her career as a Security Professional to her Home life as Wife and mother of 4 (Three of which having special needs). When her Husband passed away near to last Christmas (having battled Cancer 2+ years), she was left to grapple with all of the challenges of that single parenting created alongside of holding down a full-time work Commitment.

A lesser person might have folded beneath the pressure, but she looked to the support of her community of friends and continued to push ever onward; doing the very best she could to continue to provide for her own. It is for this reason that tragedy occured as, having left to work, she stopped to help an injured animal in the road only to be struck by a speeding vehicle... She was taken to hospital with her injuries, but died shortly afterwards. Thus, tragedy befell her (and those whom loved her) as having fought and worked so hard for those whom needed her all of her life, she would pass on to God's kingdom in like manner.

But, now, her Children need your help! They are, currently, under the guardianship of a life-long family friend and his family. Only the eldest child is of legal adult age but, due to his Disabilities: Has been dependent of his family for assistance. He has been travelling with the guardian, trying to be brave and make sense of all the legal matters. Meanwhile, the younger two suffer from disabilities which leaves them grappling to understand now why Mommy will be gone, too. And, the second oldest (and healthiest) of them now has a greater responsibility to be shouldered on his shoulder to fill the shows left empty by the passing of both parents.

Neither of the older boys have the ability to make the sort of payments and/or arrangements necessary to take care of as a full adult person and their Guardian does not have the means to cover for this and everyone on his own... That is why the Burnette family and friends are asking for charity and generosity at this time! They need help to pay for bills, funeral costs, cremation for their mother, and any other cost that may be associated with the loss. On their own: They're just kids and their guardian is now left to try to figure out (as a single parent, themselves) the management of their own kids and hers).

So, if you can: Won't you please have a heart and show them some compassion? We all thank you and will be joining in as we can, as well, to help our dear friend and her family. God bless you all and thank you.
