My mom, Fran Rahkonen, passed away after a long illness. Due to the cost of her care over the last couple of years, I am doing a fund raiser to help with her final expenses. Her husband and her being cremated, I am just trying to get enough funds together to get them a pedestal at the cemetery where their ashes can be kept together. She spent her life giving to and helping others putting everyone ahead of herself. She was truly a wonderful mother, wife and friend to many and she will be very missed.
