Janet Henson's Funeral Expenses

Hello everyone,

My wife's mom, Janet, passed away yesterday. She had been fighting ovarian cancer for several years. Janet was a strong fighter, a woman of profound faith, and an amazing role model for her daughters. She spent the past weeks at home on hospice care, surrounded by attentive and loving family. Her husband, Shawn, worked what he could, but also took given time through FMLA to be with his wife, and aid her as best as he could. Things have always been a bit tough since this journey started, but we've always been able to skirt by. Now we're in a time of great need, and I'm turning to you all for help. We have found a funeral home willing to work with us on expenses, accepting payment arrangements, etc. Right now, we are trying to raise enough money to cover the down payment and upfront costs, to get into the payment arrangement territory. Shawn, myself, and other family members are taking care of final expenses. We are just looking for the minimum amount to proceed with the funeral services. The funeral will take place Monday, 7/10/2017, so I know it's a bit short notice. Any donation, of any amount at all, will be greatly appreciated. All funds received will go directly to funeral expenses.
