Help Me Bury My Mom With Style and Class

My mom was a nurse for over 30 years!! Starting as a candy stripper at DC General getting her nursing license at MM Washington in 1980 as an LPN. She went from delivering babies at Howard University Hospital with Dr Matory who bought me into the world to working in geriatrics at many nursing homes in the city.... Rock Creek Manor,  Hospital for Sick Children and then retiring from Unity Health Care in 2010 due to having a heart attack on the job. A year later had another. All while helping me raise 5 kids and caring for her mom until she went into renal failure in 2013 where I had to step up and care for her and my granny who died at 94 of Alzheimer's 3 years ago. We were supposed to be moving on the first of december she was able to see her place though and she was able to see me come out of my dark place and get my kids and self together all while still helping others. Our plan was to cook three meals on thanksgiving to feed a family then people in the neighborhood then us!!! I was still successful because she made the Mac and cheese and prepped the lamb chops and I cooked them the next day feeding a few people and my kids. I want to accomplish all this so that I am able make all payment by Wednesday Dec 2 nd and bury her Saturday December 5th with Pastor Tony Lee as her eulogist. Prayfully it can happen with the help of the community she and I both have given to from the heart!!! I will post as may pictures as possible. Thanks in Advance!! ❤
