Funeral Expenses For My Mom

My name  is Santina this go fund me   fundraising is towards my mom's funeral expenses. My mom Ms Shylet Magangeni  passed on April the 8th at the hospital at the age of 82. Mother was a very hard-working woman who was not educated due to circumstances beyond her control yet she never allowed that to stop her from working hard to take care of herself and her kids.   She worked as a maid and was a very great cook.  She believed that giving up was never an option cause God never gave up on her despite the storms of life.  When l was a little girl her tummy was reaped open  with a knife  by my step father and her intestines came out. She traged herself  to get help and survived through it. We were homeless for many years whilst mother healed, she would gather us together and tell us stories with morals, pray and sing to us. She used that as a distraction so that we wouldn't be afraid.  In all she's been through forgiveness was the key and she did not allow pain, anger and bitterness to  stop her from moving forward.  She sacrificed alot to help take care of me as her daughter and my kids after l went through a horrible divorce. She was there for me helping tirelessly baby sitting the kids, cooking and cleaning whilst l worked to keep a roof over our heads. She never complained , instead she encouraged me and taught me that life was like a circle you either at the bottom, the middle or at the top of the circle. If you at the top remember to be good to those at the bottom. For no situation is permanent. She taught me that life is not about riches but, love, compassion, kindness, sacrifice, honesty, trust, faith and the fear of God. Mother survived two heart attacks, kidney faliure, liver inflammation, ischemic colitis, and a operation that became infected and septic due to contamination from lack of infection control. The infection went to her blood stream and lead to her death as her organs began to shut down .  As a single parent of 7 kids ,  l am unable to Give my mother the burial that she deserves and am pleading for your assistance to make this possible. Thank you in advance and may God bless you all for giving my mom a befitting burial. For l believe that our parents are of great value and deserve to be given the respect , dignity and love even in there passing. Rest in peace mother we love and will forever treasure all you taught us until we meet again.
