Virginia's Funeral Bills

Virginia, my sister, died yesterday - March 6 - and she leaves behind 3 children. She struggled her whole life with health issues but her death was a shocking blow. She was one of the kindest and gentlest people I ever had the privelege to know. Those who were privileged to know her know she never had an unkind word to say about anyone. She was giving of her time and any money she had. As her sister, I saw her at her best and her worst and she was always ALWAYS a better person than I was myself. Since she couldn't work herself - she was never well off. In fact, her husband and kids were on housing and Medicaid. Her oldest son suffers from Schizophrenia and Ginni's whole focus was to help her family have a better life than the one she led. One of the biggest problems our family now faces is her funeral bills. She was not insured and all bills will be out of our pocket. Our parents, Wayne and Carol, are retired and this is going to be a heavy burden. Please help us to honor her life. We lost our brother 5 years ago and his funeral was out of our pocket as well. This is why, this time around, we are hoping to get help. Any extra money, after the funeral bills, will go to helping her family find a way to deal with a life without her.  We are moving forward with the funeral and help (sooner rather than later) would be appreciated. Ginni helped so many people throughout her life - please help her take care of her family and herself now. Any amount is deeply appreciated!
