Funeral expenses and support

With a heavy heart, I ask for your help. My Aunt, Sharyn Maynard, passed , Tuesday February 6th. She leaves behind a husband, two sons, and her two young grandchildren. As you can imagine, the family is grieving right now and the last thing we want them to worry about is finances. Funeral expenses are only the beginning for her family.

My aunt Sharyn has been through more than anyone could imagine. She was diagnosed with RA at the age of 7. Her mother passed when Sharyn was only 14years old and she took on the role of motherhood to her 3 younger siblings. At the age of 16 she had both of her hips replaced and since then has had to have several more surgeries on her hips. She got married and had two wonderful boys who she loved unconditionally. She made anyone who walked in the room feel special. She has two young grandchildren who she loved being with.

My aunt Sharyn has been fighting her whole life and Still was always smiling. This was her second battle with cancer and she just couldn’t fight it anymore. Our family is heartbroken. May she rest pain free in heaven with her mother and father.
