Donna Turner Ellis Funeral Expenses

Donation protected

     My mother, Donna Turner Ellis,  went home to be with our Lord on Saturday morning after a  long battle with dementia. I can’t put into         words the heaviness of my heart and soul to   watch her go.  While I know she is no longer     suffering, I selfishly want my mother back.  We had 23 years robbed from us while I served       time on a wrongful conviction. I endured the    fact that she lost her complete memory of me while I sat in prison, and I am blessed to have made it home to the promise of her not
passing until I got here, yet I am struggling
with all the time that was stolen from us. 

     As I walked out of prison for the first time
since the age of 17, I knew in my heart, she      was the first person I needed to go see. I was   blessed to have been able to see my mom over these past few years and although she                 couldn’t speak, I pray, somehow she knew I     was there.  

     My family and I want to be able to give my       mom a proper goodbye and honor her life with a beautiful funeral and memorial.

     Any donation amount would be greatly               appreciated.
