In lieu of flowers...

I am currently experiencing some of the worst pain in my life....the nightmare of every parent come true. The loss of a child.
My son Keith died unexpectedly Sunday, September 10, 2017. Keith had a great heart. He cared greatly for his sister and his friends. He was loyal.
As a struggling single mom with a 17 year old daughter, I am faced not only with the grief caused by the death of my son, but also the unexpected expenses. I work three part-time jobs with no benefits. Since Keith's death I have been off work and now I am faced with not only a loss in wages but with cremation & funeral expenses.
I find myself in a terrible situation in addition to the pain of losing Keith. I need to ask you, my friends, my family and my community for support. Please help fund my living and final arrangement expenses for my son Keith who deserves recognition for his life and respect in laying him to rest.
Every little bit counts. It all adds up so please give what you are comfortable giving. I appreciate everything I receive.
Thanks in advance, Lorraine.
