Patty and Johnny Olson's memorial fund

My cousin Johnny Olson passed away July 1, 2013 after being in a coma for 3 weeks. He had struggled with drug addiction for years and received a bad shot of heroin which caused him to stop breathing. It was a tragic and devastating loss to our family. His parents were only able to afford for him to be cremated. He has been sitting on a shelf in an urn for over a year now. I am hoping to raise enough funds to get him a headstone and burial spot at the cemetery. I have called and the cost for everything will be 1,971.63. As of today august 29, 2014 his mother patricia jean olson found out this morning that her cancer has came back in her liver. She was told this is very aggressive and they are unable to treat it with chemo or radiation. She has been given weeks to a few months to live. I am now raising additional funds to help her two remaining children christine and michael, be able to cover the cost of cremating their mom and be able to place her with her son , johnny, into a cremation spot. Anything you can donate to help give Christine and Michael some help to give their mom and brother some closure and peace of mind when they lose their mom would be greatly appreciated.
