Jeanette's Funeral

My name is Matthew and I'm trying to raise money to pay for my wonderful mother-in-law's funeral.

Jeanette died suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday, 9 January 2015.  She had no money.  She had no life insurance policy.  Her surviving family members have no money with which to pay her funeral expenses.  My wife and I have no money to pay for the funeral expenses.  My wife has been left with the task of taking care of whatever expenses Jeanette has left behind and things are uncertain at this point.  All we want to do is pay off her funeral so we can take her ashes home.

Jeanette was an awesome mother, grandmother, and mother-in-law.  She didn't have much, but she gave what little she had to raise her daughters and help raise her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Her joy came from the joy she gave others.  She was a strong, resourceful woman who made do with very little.  Her love for us all was a bottomless well.  I loved her like my own mother, as she very much was a mother to me. 

She's been through enough in her lifetime.  We just want to bring her home.  Thank you for your time.
