At the age of 23, our mother was paralyzed from the chest down due to an accidental shooting. This caused an unfortunate declination of her health to include diabetes, sarcoidosis, leg amputation, many other health issues and cancer. She has been in and out of hospitals for the past 25 years. 3 weeks ago a tumor was found in her pelvic area, growing rapidly. Initially our family was told she would have a bout six months to live than I was told 7 to 10 days. It was 1 day later that she passed peacefully in her sleep.
Living 600 miles away from my mother was difficult, but I was fortunate enough to spend time with my mother this past week. She laughed and joked as she always did. Her last request was "get my grand baby something for his birthday." She was always giving and would give her last to family, friends, and even strangers.
So we ask that you please assist us in celebrating her life by donating to her funeral expenses. Any donation, prayer, and words of comfort will help.
Thank You All
