Support for the Ford Family

Hello ,My name is Michael Coleman . I am starting this fund to support my friend Randolph Ford who just lost his mother. As a single father of two teenage boys,Randy has been dealing with  a wide array of issues ranging from dealing with with his children on his own,struggling to maintain housing for his family ,financial instability,and his own health issues. The most recent challange for Randy has been dealing with the passing  n of his mother. She has been suffering from complications of several strokes within the past few years in addition to other health issues.                              

Through all of this adversity Randy has remained strong and active in his community with the Westside Human Rights Committee,a sub committee of the United Workers,a non-profit Human Rights org. This is a testament to Randy's determination and commitment to making Baltimore (and this country)a better place for EVERYONE! 
I salute and appriciate Randy's efforts,sacrafice,and friendship over the years.  As Momma Mary's(his mother) only child,Randy will be the only person dealing with whatever funds are recieved. The $2000 will cover Ms Ford's creamation,her urn,and transporting her to North Carolina to be placed at her mother's side(per her request).  We do not know at this time what the charge would be for placing Momma with her mother. Whatever the case,we don't have a lot of time to raise this money as the creamatorium is asking for payments to start as soon as this Monday (8/14/17). Thank you for your time and concideration. Whatever is recieved will be greatly appriciated,and would go a long way to helping Randy and his family find some comfort and peace.
