Paula Onorato's Memorial Fund

My mother passed unexpectedly and tragically on January 17th, 2018 at the young age of only 38.  She was on life support from then til January 22nd, until the doctors declared they could never bring her back. We lost her.  All the family and friends of my mothers, including myself, hearts shattered. She was a huge part in so many peoples lives, more than she would have ever known. Her love for her children is infinite; an irreplacable love. But, it wasn't enough to save her while she was still with us. She was a fighter, a lover, a forgiver, a friend, a mom. She was everything. She is everything. I still can't believe she's gone. 
My mother did not have life insurance. My Grandfather had to pay out of pocket for the services, very expensive services he very well cannot afford. He's struggling, as on top of all this his own health is declining. 73 years old, working 6 days a week as a hair stylist til this day. He started when he was only 20, and has never stopped. This man deserves everything. He deserves a break.  And he deserves some peace as well. These expenses have left him overwhelmed, and much more stressed. He's just too old now to be supporting a household and I can only help him so much as I go to school full time and can only work part time. Any little bit would help us alleviate some of this extra stress that's now also been added to our lives because of these financial issues. I know my Grandfather and he would never be the type to let his pride down and ask others for help but at this moment we truly need it. As I said before I can only help him so much. Any donation no matter the size would be immensely appreciated and put directly towards trying to get our family back on our feet since this tragedy has struck us. I'm truly so grateful for all of the help we can possibly get. My Grandfather will be overwhelmed with joy and relief once I'm able to show him the support that we recieve, thank you for taking the time to read my familys story.
