Help Giovanni's mother funeral

Dear Friends,

Giovanni and his mother Adelaide have been in the US for 25 years. Gio is a hard working man caring about his mother and trying to deliver to her the best possible life. Adelaide developed type 2 diabetes and later on she was diagnosed with cancer. Giovanni never let his mother down and was with her at ER and hospital admissions day and night. At times, he wouldn’t  go home for more than 30 days staying next to his mom when cancer was discovered. Gio loved his mother so very much. He took care of her til her last very moment. Gio recalls the moments they lived close together in good times and not so good ones. Among them there is one when his mother will cheerfully share her wish to have him visit her at the cemetery with flowers and look at her picture on the tombstone.  

Please help Giovanni give his mother the burial she deserves. Any donations would be greatly appreciated and help defray the significant expenses associated with her funeral. 

Thank you very much for taking the time to read.
