Sending Mom to Heaven

On Christmas morning we were given the news that our mom, Linda Carpenter, had passed away. For many years she had been sick with multiple diagnoses but she always continued to fight never loosing hope. On Christmas Eve she had been taken to the hospital where she remained unconscious until 5am Christmas morning when she left us from cardiac arrest. She leaves behind her wife and best friend China, her three children Christine, Kent, and Keneisha, and four grandchildren that were her world. During this difficult time we are asking for help with cremation and travel expenses. Our mom was a very giving person who always had her doors open to those in need. Though she had quite a dramatic personality, she was welcoming to all and made sure to help in anyway possible. We thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts and wish everyone a wonderful holiday season.
