Dorothy Sword funeral expenses

     With a heavy heart, I ask for your help. My sister Dorothy Sword the mother of two young boys Nathan and Jacob, is currently on life support. After numerous test by doctors, they have come to the conclusion that she will never come back from this tragic Incident because of the lack of brain activity. Due to this information we have come to the decision that when the time is right we should allow her to go in peace and move on to a better place.

      Anyone who knew Dorothy, knows that she would bend over backwards to help a friend, or give her shirt off her back to keep them warm. Although we all know she had problems and struggles throughout life, her heart was always the same. She loved all her family and friends unconditionally. She had a heart that could fill the grand canyon and a soul that would light up a room. Im simply saying she wasn't perfect, but Dorothy was a kind hearted child of God, that will be sorely missed. Our world will never be the same without her.

     In this very devastating time my mother and father are completely heartbroken and simply don't know where they go from here. Without their knowledge I'm making this account to try and help them financially get through this tragic time, because I know their pride will not allow them to ask for handouts (donations). As much as they would love to give Dorothy the funeral she deserves, they simple are not financially sound enough to do so. They would surely take out a loan against our home to pay for the funeral and medical bills.

     This path I am hoping to avoid because I believe if we all can all come together and pitch In anyway possible, we can give Dorothy the funeral her loving beautiful heart deserves. In doing so prevent my mother and father from putting added stress and worry on themselves.

     So In conclusion I would just like to thank everyone who took the time out of their day to read this, whether you donate or not, thank you. Whether you can help us in anyway during this sad time or not we appreciate and love you all. Anything would help and we greatly love and appreciate all our family and friends. Thanks you so much a may God bless you all. Love the Rodriguez Family
