Francis (Pearl) Bates Funeral Fund

My mom Francis Bates passed away unexpectingly at 12:01 this morning.  She did not have life insurance. I have made funeral arrangements to the best of my abilities. This really saddens me, because she deserves the best. Everyone who knew my mother, knew her to be the most genuine and selfless person in their lives. We are still in need of monetary assistance to finalize her funeral costs. Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
