Rest in Paradise Mom

My mother was a hard working woman. One of the best woman I know. She had a rough childhood but prevailed in her adult life to be able to raise me to be the man I am today. My mother also longed for another child to add to get family and after 2 miscarriages, in 2002 she was pregnant with my little brother. Even though we are filled with joy, my mother's diabetes worsened and her kidneys started to fail. With a shaky pregnancy, my mother gave birth to my little brother in 2003. After giving birth, my mother's health continues to decline. Then 9 months later my mother finds out she is pregnant again, this time with a little girl. My mother always wanted a little girl and even though the doctor told her it would be a 50/50 chance of a successful pregnancy, my mother put it in God hands and decided to continue with the pregnancy.  During that time, the pregnancy damaged even more of her kidneys and during a very traumatic birth, my mom gave birth to my little sister in 2005. After the pregnancy, my mother tried her hardest to provide for her family and us three kids. She worked for the city of Reading, The Colinition to end Homelessness, and the Salvation Army, for she always had a passion for helping others and the public. Even though her health was continuously declining due to the diabetes and Reno failure, she continued as long as she could to get up and go to work everyday. Then, in 2012 my mother's kidneys completed failed and had to begin dialisys treatment. In that process she contracted pyaderma which is a self- attacking disease, where the body attacks itself from the inside, she also suffered an amputation on her left leg. With that she had to stop working which ended her life insurance and when applied for some she was not qualified due to her amputation. She struggled six long years and pain and suffering trying to stick around for her family. Then this morning, God called my queen home so unexpectly and even though I know her soul is resting in peace finally...My father, brother, sister and I miss her so dearly. And we do not have the funds to properly bury my mother the way that she would have wished. So I ask from the bottom of my heart for any donation that would help me and my family give my mother the best funeral that she deserves.
