Funeral Costsfor Tina Fickes Thomas

On Saturday, Feb. 17, Tina passed away unexpectedly. Tina had struggled for the past several years with severe rheumatoid arthritis pain then in Sept. 2016 she fell & shattered her ankle. It required complete reconstructive surgery.  Before she was able to fully heal from this she had a hernia that strangulated her intestines that became infected in April 2017.  Following two surgeries requiring wound vacs, she kept declining instead of getting better.  She was taken to the hospital Thursday, Feb. 15 with yet another infection.  This time she was unable to recover because the infection had moved to her heart valves and everything began to shut down.  Surgery wasn't an option because of her fragile state and she passed peacefully.  

Tina has been unable to work for years & with ongoing medical bills & the unexpected funeral costs, it has brought a huge financial strain for her husband, Charlie and extended family. The funds will be used to pay for her funeral costs.

Tina would have done anything she could have for anyone, including strangers.  When you were around her you couldn't help but to be happy and smile because she was always smiling.  Please keep Tina's family in your prayers & help with anything you're able to give.
