Unexpected passing of MOM/Grandma

Hello everyone. Unfortunately we are writing this because our mother has passed away a few days ago. It was sudden and unexpected as we came home after taking a 15 minute run to Walgreens and as we returned she couldnt breathe and suddenly collapsed then shortly after passed away in the early morning on May 25th. Maria was a thoughful, caring and very loving single mom that went to many extremes to provide a wonderful life for her 3 children. Being a grandmother for less then 3 weeks was probably one of the most proud moments of her life and ended way too soon. Anyone who knew her can talk about the energy she had as she would light up a room with laughter. We are all devistated by her loss and unfortunatly with her passing we are now left with a stack of bills and a mortgage to pay. Any funds we raise will help our younger sister by paying the mortgage and possibly a few of the bills that will be coming in. Hopefully this will buy us some time until we can decide what to do with her home. No one plans death but her oldest son has a 3 week old baby and the 2nd son just purchased his own house but we are not sure how much we are going to be able to help our sister as much as we want to in this hard time. Any funds we raise will be to help our younger sister pay the bills and not fall behind on our mothers mortgage that she worked so very hard for over the years. We are still shocked by her passing and feel very overwhelmed with having to move on without her and unfortunately the bills coming in is taking away from the mourning of our mother and adding a tremendous amount of stress to our family. Anything raised will be more then a blessing and there is no saying how much this will be appreciated in this terrible chapter of our life. Thanks for reading our story and say a prayer for our Mother she will be missed terribly everyday.
