Moms Funeral

I will start by saying I never thought I would be in a position that Need to ask for help. I am very proud of my mom who is known Deni Biancalana. She has always been a hard act to follow.  My mom has always been the one who was helping where ever she could.  Wether it was helping me when I was young, nurse an injured animal, helping me do a school art project, nursing the sick, making curtains/clothes or cooking an awesome meal on demand.  It is a known fact that she was unable to alow anyone to be the least bit hungry. Her love for kids was her life. Her love affair with kids started with her little sister Gina then went on to her grand kids, Don Debrah and Bruce. she even taught CCD at the church.  She loved her grand kids Dominick and Elizebeth. when the grand kids grew up, she became a licenced opair and helped take care of many lucky childeren.  The people who have known my mom will agree that she is anwesome mother, friend  sister, aunt,cousin, or granma.  Many of the kids she looked after affecionately called her Den-Den. In 1990 she lost the soul mate, my Dad Joseph  in 1990, oldest  son Don in 1999 the stress and shock of these events caused her to  be obviosly depressed and sad. mom wore black for many years. As life went on she lived her life with her good friend Wally,  In 2007 Wally passed away adding more stress and mental angiush.  In 2010 she came down with colon cancer. at this point I had my mom move in to my house so I coud care for her. It was then I found out that she had been suffuring from dementia, to my shock it discovered that she lost all her money, donatining to chairities and loosing it at her new form of escape... The Casino... The Dementia serious mental issues.  It was then I started paying her bills. as time went on I found it hard to maake all the ends meet. If that was not bad enough a law siut from a rehibilatation center drug me persoally into a law siut that cost me over 100,000.00 I did not have.  Which brings me to the aweful delema im in... As I write this plead for help my mom lies dying in her death bed. I am told by the Hopice people that she has a few days to live and I can't even afford to give her a fitting funeral.  Dementia has truly ruined us. This desease has caused mental problems for my mom that I was blind to until it was too  late.  As I look into the cost of a funeral im told that $12000. is not out of the qeustion these days for a funeral... Any help will be Apriciated.
