An angel needs to be laid to rest

My name is Patty O'Dell I am creating this  campaign for my friend Deanna Mathis her son Erik Hannah was 11 years old and was born with ring 22 chromosomal abnormalities a very rare disorder that has caused all his major organs to shut down, the doctors said he probably would not live past his 5th birthday, Erik has fought long and hard for many years he's been in and out of hospitals his entire life, when he wasn't in the hospital he spent his time at home where he enjoyed watching cartoons and playing with his siblings Kenny and Abby and he loved to sit in his Mommas lap and listen to music he would get so happy and when he smiled it lit up the room, Even though he was battling everyday he was full of life and happiness and enjoyed everyday that he had. His mother will need help paying for his funeral expenses as she hasn't been able to work because Erik needed someone to stay with him all the time, Deanna lives with her Mother and Father at this time because she needed a lot of help with Erik. Please pray for this family as it hits them hard no one is ever ready to lose their child. Erik was their world he slept by his Momma every night I can't imagine the pain that his big brother Kenny is going through and his little sister Abby, Erik was on hospice at home and passed away this morning August 26th 2017 Please donate anything that you can even $1.00 as it is a very hard and trying time for this family. Deanna is a very good mom she's stayed by Erik since day one she has been through so much with Erik the last thing she needs to do is worry about is all the expenses, Any help you can provide is very appreciated.
