Bring Mama Home

My grandmother 〜 Gloria Sanchez better known as “Mama” and “Rae”, died on February 15th 2018 after battling 6 months with an interstitial lung diseases. She left behind my grandfather, Benjamin Sanchez Jr. whom is currently recovering from a recent brain injury. Mama’s last wishes were to be cremated and placed in a niche in the courtyard of Saint Joseph’s Cemetery in San Pablo, California overlooking her son Michael Sanchez Sr. With no life plan insurance, and no savings my grandfather and I have to come up with $5,500* to place her in the niche and make her last wishes come true. *This would only cover the niche (wall space) and inscription. The cemetery would need the funds up-front no later than March 18th 2018 — leaving us with 13 days to come up with the balance. If there is any way you can help, we would be very appreciative as we wish to properly lay Mama to rest.
