Support for Widow following Suicide

Right before Christmas 2017, a father of 6 - Tom, after battling debilitating depression/anxiety for many years took his own life. Angela, now left a widow with 6 adopted children; 5 of those being under the age of 9, must now fill the role of two parents. 

Angela Christensen, a devout mother and wife, care giver, and foster mother for 16+ years is now left to pick up the pieces emotionally and financially.

Life must go on, but any help that you could give would help ease the burdens and allow Angela to maintain a "semi-normal" life for her large family.

I have never seen a more deserving person in my life. Angela has ALWAYS been the first one to come to my aide as well as every one else she knows. If there was ever something that needed to be done, someone needed to be helped, cared for, or anything - she was there. Every.single.time. Now let us step up for her, lift her, and carry her in any way that we can. SHE NEEDS our support. Let us ease this enormous financial and emotional burden for this amazing family.

Tom was her main source of income as Angela was a stay at home mother.

All funds will go directly to Angela Christensen for funeral expenses, travel expenses to get to the funeral, living expenses, relocation expenses, and helping secure an attorney as Tom did not have a living will. 

Any dollar you can contribute helps and is needed as soon as possible.

Thank you so much!
