Abby's funeral and medical cost

Abby was 19, and taken away too soon.  I was going back to work, but Abby got sick right before I was to start.  We live check to check, and Abby's dad is disabled.  Abby went into hospital in October and started dialysis October 31.  We never thought Abby would not come home with us.  She went in on a Sunday and I told her brother and sister we would be home by Wednesday, a statement (promise) I could not keep. Her body just gave out.  She was such a blessing to us.  She was special needs, but she had a huge heart and not a mean bone in her body.  She would drive you mad with noise, but melt you with her beautiful smile and eyes.  Our house is so quiet without her, and our hearts are broken in half.  My brother help with the up front expense, but we really want to pay him back and get a headstone made.  Our life seems empty without her, but we want to give her one more special thing and that is her headstone, with her beautiful picture on it.   We would appreciate anything anyone can give, and give a huge THANK YOU, for all that give.  We wish we did not have to ask for this, we would rather have Abby alive instead of trying to pay for her untimely death.
