Memorial for Mom - Jan Bott

 I want to thank everyone who gave so generously to help my brother, my sister and I pay for the expenses for my mother's memorial and burial. We still have some outstanding bills and expenses to pay, any and all donations I really greatly appreciated.

Both of my parents were very active in the community, alot of people have said they were the most giving people they knew, and as much as they gave they did not prepare for their own burial and memorial when their time finally came. My father died in 2011 and my mother died on December 26, 2017. Mom has been saving jewelry, gift cards and a few cherished items for me to sell when she died to pay for her burial. She had them in the house but we were broken into on Christmas Eve and everything was stolen. So far my brother and myself have paid for most of the expenses, and we've exhausted all of our funds. The most important thing however is to give mom a dignified burial and memorial that we can share with the entire community.
