Help me bury my daughter please

32964376_1536936716258675_r.jpegMy beautiful daughter Lori Ann Melanson passed away on Sept. 11, 2018. She took her own life because of all the pain she had. All she wanted was to have her children back. She was a fantastic mother and raised her 4 children by herself.

The day she passed she received a phone call  at work from her 3 daughter's father telling her that he was putting her oldest daughter K in a mental institution. K is 10 years old and there was NOTHING wrong with her mentally. This man just wanted money and since my daughters twins get SSI he will keep them. K did not get SSI so he didn't and doesn't need to keep her. K yelled over the phone "Mama daddy said he is sending me to a hospital and I can't get out until I am 18." The only reason this idiot received custody of the girls was because my daughter, myself and her step-father did not have the money to get Lori to Maine for a court hearing. The court system is not about justice, just money. Lori had won over 8 court custody cases for the girls but lost the last one because she could not get to Maine.

The father is a known drug user and had put the girls at risk many times over. In the other court custody cases, Department of Child Welfare testified on Lori's behalf stating that Lori was a fantastic mother and the father was not safe for the children to be around. This idiot got custody on the last since Lori was not there. Lori will be so sorely missed by her children, sister, Heather Melanson, her friends and those family members that have proven that they loved and cared for her.

I do not have the money for the hospital she was taken to when she shot herself in the head nor do I have the money for burial, cremation, or services. Lori was (is) an organ donor. Her body is still at the hospital in Ocala, Florida awaiting the harvesting of her organs. Lori, my youngest, baby daughter is totally brain dead. I want my baby back but G_d decided he wanted her more.

Please help me to put my daughter to rest, she had everything taken from her, please, oh please let her have a burial and service. If you e mail me with questions, I will answer back. Please help me take care of my daughter the way she deserves.

THANK YOU.
