Sudden Family Death

I live in California... yesterday, I got a very devastating call from my dad in Ohio that my stepmom, Leshia, was found dead at home due to unknown circumstances. Leshia was a wonderful person. She was one of the most loving, caring people I have ever met and she would do absolutely anything for anyone. At only 48 years young, she was taken entirely too soon and it was definitely the most unexpected death in my life thus far. I never, ever do anything like this, but this is such a tough time for me and my family, especially my little sister and my dad. My family has enough funds to provide a ticket for me to get home to be with them and to attend services, but I have no sitter here in California to leave my boys with while I go home, so with that being said, I would need to bring them home with me. Due to deaths being so sudden and unexpexted, I do not have the funds to go back home and bring my children. I would never ask for any help, but being I need to squeeze my dad and my sister, I would do just about anything to come up with the funds to get back home to them and I owe it to Leshia to be there. I would have so many regrets if I missed it and missed the opportunity to say goodbye to her the right way. Thank you all in advance, you'll never know how thankful I am. Rest In Peace, my beautiful stepmom. May you always watch over us. ❤️❤️
