My mom was a beautiful person, inside and out. There was no one more generous than her, no one more giving and compassionate, and no one funnier than her. She wasn't afraid to speak her mind, and her personality and smile filled a room. Anyone you ask would have thousands of wonderful memories to share about my mom. And about half of those people would say she was their mom, too. (She basically raised half the neighborhood).
We are forgoing a traditional funeral service and instead hosting a memorial service for her in a week or so. We want to bring all those who loved her together to celebrate her life. There is a part of us missing, a part that will probably never feel full again, but we can try to feel whole again. This memorial is a start to our healing process.
As is the case with many people who have been struggling with a chronic illness, medical bills have piled high. We are asking for donations to help make this memorial service possible for us. Any excess money will go towards helping with the medical bills. Any amount you can spare is greatly appreciated. If you can't donate, please share this fundraiser to help spread the word.
Thank you so much, and rest in peace to our beautiful angel. We love you to the moon and back, forever.
