Linda is a Social Security recipient, with only Medicaid medical coverage and no life insurance. Her daughter, Meronda Delk-Brown, has been charged with the responsibility of laying her mom to rest at Hillsborough Memorial Gardens, in Brandon, FL, next to her dad. Thanks to extended friends, Hillsborough Memorial Gardens has agreed to reduce the costs as much as possible, as an effort to aid Linda's family with this looming financial burden. The rest....well, that's up to friends and family.
Linda resides in Lakeland, Georgia and cares for her son who is disabled. He will be coming to reside with Meronda and her family. Linda will have one final journey back to Florida to rest and there is a cost to make that happen.
Meronda and her husband, Brandon, are preparing for the birth of their fifth child in a few months. They have also recently welcomed their daughter, and grandson Jackson, into their home.
Life has recently taken unexpected turns for Meronda and her family. They need their friends, family, and unknown friends who want to pay it forward, to come together, find it in their hearts to help defray the costs of Linda's final rest, and stand by Meronda in the form of financial aid.
Meronda refuses to ask for assistance; remaining proud and humble. She believes that everything will always work out. Here's our chance to show her that, in the midst of her brave tears, everything does work out. It's easy to say that someone is a friend; there are those rare times when it's necessary to show the appreciation for the friendship.
Put yourself into the same situation and follow your heart. Please donate whatever you can to help Meronda to lay her mom to rest. Then, hug someone that you love. Forgive the faults; don't stress the little things. Life is short and unpredictable.
On behalf of the Delk and Brown families, thank you for your kind support.
