Seth and Suzi memorial and recovery

My family has recently suffered through the loss of my brother and a very traumatic injury to my mother.   As some of you may know my brother was dealing with schizophrenia and could not overcome his extreme mental anguish.  On October 29th his illness overtook him and he took his life, in the process he critically wounded my mother.  He will be missed so much,  I wish he knew just how much, because then he would still be here. My mom is recovering now, she is still in the ICU but is expected to recover, we just dont know exactly what her recovery will require at this point.   

As you can expect this has been unbelivably hard on my family.  There are so many unexpected financial aspects that we could really use some help with, the funeral/, memorial, moms medical copays, damages done,  etc.  I don't want my mom to have to worry about how she will pay for her son's funeral when she should be focused on living through this.  Anything would help I'm sorry to ask for assistance like this but we have no other options.   If by some mircale we can raise more than the money we need everything left will go towards mental health programs and suicide prevention.   Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and Love at this difficult time. You will never know how much it actually means to my family.
