Help me give my grandma a proper burial

Barbara Cain, to many that may just be a name, but for those who were blessed to get the chance to know her understand that a mere name could not encompass the woman she was.  She had many alias, world’s greatest mom, nana, great-grandma, and friend. She was a woman full of love, sass, and an undeniable motivation to keep on living when most thought it would be impossible.

The loss of this woman has caused tremendous heartbreak due to the suddenness of the ordeal.  Our family thought we were getting a step closer to getting to bring our beloved Nana back home after almost 6 months in the hospital.  When in all actuality, our hopes became our biggest loss. Within the matter of one day of moving her to rehabilitation facility, we as a family had to say goodbye to a woman that had more fight in her than Rocky himself.

She was the person who filled the room with laughter, who dragged you against your will to learn the electric slide, the worlds greatest back scratcher, but most importantly she was always the safe haven.  She was the one person who would listen to all the nonsense, wipe up all the tears, and love you unconditionally no matter the circumstances. She would have given you the last penny to her name and the shirt off her back if that meant you would have been happy, she was selfless.  

We as a family are asking for your help to raise the funds needed for funeral arrangements for our Nana.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. We were not ready for her to go so suddenly and we do not think she was ready to leave us, but God has his own plans for each of his servants, he may have been overdue for another beautiful angel.  Thank you to all that have taken the time to read this and reminisce in the memory of Barbara Cain, a woman that touched the lives of many and left such an impact on this world. It is never goodbye, but always see ya later!
