This is a difficult thing to do, to ask your friends and family for financial assistance. Sadly, we have few other options. My beautiful, feisty, spirited, amazing mother is dying. She does not have life insurance. She has three daughters who love her dearly, but none of which have the means to give her a proper burial. She is estimated to have a week or so left, so we are doing everything we can-even this-to ensure that she can have a memorial service and be buried next to my grandfather as she wishes. I am so sorry to ask for your help, I just don't know what else to do. We have about 3,000 dollars between the three sisters, but an average funeral is between 5-7,000 and that is just your most bare/basic funeral. So, with that said, if we can raise 2,000-we will at least be meeting the requirement for the minimum option. Thank you all so much for your thoughts, prayers, and for any donation-no matter how small.
