My name is Jesse Runge, I live in Mitchell, South Dakota. My sister Beth passed away September 26th in Sioux Falls at the Avera McKennan hospital in Sioux Falls due to meningitis at the age of 32, four years older than myself. She was in the hospital for a month fighting the illness, with family members constantly by her side staying at the hospital with her.
Losing a family member is one thing, and living with that loss every day is another. We are doing our best to cope with this pain and loss, and along with this pain comes the financial burden of memorial and funeral costs. This happened completely unexpectedly and we are all left with a hole in our hearts. I hate asking for help when it comes to anything, but I thought I would give this a shot and ask for help in my family's time of need.
I'm not completely sure how much everything is going to cost in the end, so anything helps. I'd also encourage everyone to please share this Memorial Fund with people you know. Any size donation is greatly appreciated by me and my family. Thank you.
