Post Covid. Can't lose kids or mom's house.

My mom lost her battle to Covid-19 on December 18, 2020 after fighting for 41 days. She was laying next to my sister who also has covid-19  and is currently fighting for her life in the same hospital since November 9, 2020. I have my sister's underage children that I am also taking care of. My mother was retired veteran and also retired police officer, who served our country honorably. This horrible virus took my mother before her time and we will like to send her off properly. No amount is too small, we are grateful for any donation as we know everyone is experiencing hardship during these times and the holidays are here.  We are laying my mother to rest on December 30, 2020. All proceeds will honestly be used towards my mother's burial and anything remaining will be used to assist with taking care of the children. As of right now, we pray my sister makes a full recovery from this but as anyone knows with Covid-19, things change daily and drastically as they did with our mother. We have not ever asked for any assistance other than prayer throughout this experience our family has been going through. Thank you all for your prayers and support. Our page is updated daily on Facebook dedicated to them, https://www.facebook.com/groups/381775336215433/?ref=share

Thank you. Love Tammy, David and family.

Update: My sister, Precious, have also lost her battle. She fought for 47 days. While we were making arrangements, literally at the funeral home, we got the call that my sister coded. Our world is shattered. We cannot even begin to properly bury my mother and now we have to bury my sister. To have to tell my neice and nephew this devastating news literally broke my heart, they are so young. 

I feel like we are begging but must put my pride to the side. We need assistance. To experience one death is crucial but I lost two people within a week of each other. My sister fought for 47 days. I checked on them 4 times a day, we zoomed them everyday. We just sang Merry Christmas to her last night. We never told her of our mother's death, it would have killed her. 

I don't even know what to do with myself not making phone calls to the hospital. This has been my way of life for the last 8 weeks. It was 7 of us with Covid-19, now there are 5. I cannot believe I lost my mother and a week later my older sister. My world is shattered. I know many are dying of Covid-19, we took all the precautions necessary, they didn't deserve this. Please give anything you can to assist. We appreciate you.
