I initially didn't want to set one of these up, the thought of asking for money in a time like this seems inappropriate. However there are some financial obligations that I am trying to contend with as a result of her passing and it has been brought to my attention that some of you would like to "help out" in any way that you can.
So I have set this campaign up to help me in finalizing her affairs. Please note, that her services have been taken care of at this time, I just wasn't sure how to classify this particular campaign other than as a funeral/memorial fund. Any funds raised from this effort will go towards everyday costs of running the household as well as finalizing her obligations while we await the processing and payment of her benefits, which probably won't occur until late in the year. Any funds remaining will be set aside and added to Mason's college fund.
I don't want to leave this open ended, as I believe that in order for ourselves and the remainder of her family and friends to heal, we need a sense of closure in order to start to transition from mourning to healing and moving forward. That being said, I am going to leave this up to run through the end of the month of September and then will close it down.
Any donations would greatly be appreciated and will be a tremendous help, however, if you are unable to donate, I simply ask that you remember Bridget as the remarkable woman that she was and allow her memory to live on inside of you. Then she will never truly be gone.
Thank you for your time and your care.
