Rick Calvin Funeral Fund

Two days ago, I got the worst phone call of my life. A phone call absolutely no mother should ever have to get. My sweet son, Rick had passed away. He was only 32 years old with a bright future. He passed in his sleep, with one arm propped up behid his head and the other at his side, just like he always slept. His heart stopped. Rick had a contagious personality and never knew a stranger. He was actively involved in mission trips to Guatemala where he helped at an orphange, chaging hundreds of children's lives. He fell in love with them and devoted his time to helping others. He even spent his own time and money to go back without the church because he had such a strong connection to those children. He adored his family and loved spendig time with us. His calling was to help others and to spread love and happiness where ever he went. And he did just that. Our Rick left us entirely too soon. He left myself, his father, his little sister and so many other family memebers with questions that will never be answered and holes in our hearts. He was the glue that held us all together,  and now we are all just falling apart. No mother should have to bury her son. He had saved my life. I wouldnt be here today if I had not had him to live on for. Now he has gone. He had no life insurance and We now are left with a funeral bill that we are not sure how we are going to pay for. I want to be abe to just grieve, not worry about paying for the funeral of my son. Any donation, even if it is just a dollar, would be far more appreciated than you would know.
