Melanie Mountain memorial fund

My name is Mike Davis and i'm setting this account up on behalf of Melanie Mountain and her mother Delores Mountain.  I don't know where to begin,i've never been good at asking people for anything,  but I humbly come to you now to ask not for myself but for a family that has lost more than any family should in such a short period of time. Dee's husband Dan had been hospitalized for months and during this time Dee had used up most of her FMLA to care for her sick husband never leaving his side until he passed. Dee went over her allotted hours of FMLA and called off work to be with her husband of 30 plus years in his final moments and she got fired for it.  Not only did this well known Beaver County  establishment fire her, they locked her out of her account to which she needs access to her pay stubs, health insurance policy, and the life insurance policy that she has on herself and her husband through this company. And is still fighting with this company to get the money that she's paid for and is entitled to for the terrible moments in life like this.  Dee came up with the money to bury her husband through family and friends without receiving unemployment benefits that she also paid into or by using a go fund me account. Sadly this isn't the end of Dee 's story.  Yesterday Delores 33 yr old daughter passed away leaving behind two children that just buried their grandfather that they and Melanie lived with their whole lives, now they have to say goodbye to their mother less than one month later.  Dee not working right now after being an exemplary employee for 13 years at this company just doesn't have the means, and it is my goal and my mission to make sure that those children get to say goodbye to her in proper way, and that they get to see their mother for the last time with the dignity and respect she deserves. Melanie was a bright shining beautiful soul inside and out, she could walk into a room full of strangers and leave with a roomful of new friends. She had a heart of gold and would do anything she could to help someone in need, and anyone that had privilege to truly know her knows that. So again I humbly ask for help for this family in any amount you can give, and if you can't contribute financially I ask that you share this with as many people as you can. I am setting this up so that Delores Mountain is the sole beneficiary, Thank you and God bless
