Mama Farris Burial Plot

Mama Farris (AKA June Farris) was an extraordinary woman. She dedicated her life to her work as a librarian and as a wife and mother. Her sudden death came as a complete shock to Dad and I despite all of her different health problems over the years. We were caught very off guard and I'm in the process of buying a burial plot for my mom. As many of you know my mom was a lifelong Russian Orthodox Christian and  her religion dictates that she must be buried. I called around to all of the cemeteries in Chicago and have found one that will allow me to buy my mom's plot and put a deposit down on the neighboring plot for my father. $3600 is what it will take to pay for my mother's plot and the down payment for my father's. If you can, I ask you to make any donation small or large to help me take this burden off of me and my Dad. 

~Thank you all so very much.
