Cremation & Estate expenses for Patricia Mathews

My beloved friends and family....

As of 3 weeks ago my mother has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer that has spread aggressively into her brain. Originally, the doctors gave her an estimate of 3-4 months but since then she has taken many serious dives in her condition. It was made official that as of today, 2/24/2020, we are down to the last couple days or less.

Patricia Ann Mathews is a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, and for a better part of her life, served the community as a Licensed Practical Nurse. It breaks all of our hearts to watch her slowly fade away but she has been fighting a very difficult battle these past few weeks and she is letting us know she is  getting ready to let go and join the rest of our family above.

My family and I are asking for donations to help cover creamation and estate expenses since her life insurance won't cover it all due to a low policy amount.... We were not prepared for the suddenness of her condition and it pains our family to know that her final wish may be delayed months until the cremation is paid in full.

Anything will be accepted and is very much appreciated by all of us. Please help us in making her final wish a less painful road for us. From our family to yours, we thank you for taking the time to read her story and for your consideration and compassion. We love you all.

****As of February 24, 2020, 4:20 pm, Patricia Ann Mathews said goodbye to this world and joined the angels above.
