My mom lost the love of her life and needs help

I rarely ask for help, if ever, but at the present moment I have no choice. I'm asking for help on behalf  of my mom, Mary, who suffered the sudden loss of the love of her life, her husband, Skip Sterger. He was an extraordinary man and an amazing husband and father. Skip was the sole provider of the household. My mom is 66 years old and is currently not working and has no income to cover bills and other expenses.  Due to the rising cost of funeral and burial expenses on top of household bills, we are in a desperate position. Our ultimate fear is losing the home that she shared with Skip. Again, my family and I would never ask for help if we didn't desperately need it.  Please help my mom through the most difficult time  she has ever had to face. Anything you can give will help and from the bottom of our hearts we thank you so very much.
