Funeral expenses for our mother

As most everyone is aware, our family suffered a huge loss last Friday, (6/26/20) when our mother, Cindy Prescott (Seigars), passed away very unexpectedly. She went into the hospital with abdominal pain on Thursday night, and in less than 24 hours, she very rapidly declined. She had some kind of infection tearing through her, but didn’t have enough time to figure out what it was. The hospital tried multiple times to label her as a covid death, despite three negative tests. Our family is completely crushed, and unsure how to move forward without her. She was such a lovely person, and the world just makes less sense without her in it.
We have had to deal with the heartbreaking task of arranging everything for her, and of course it all comes with a price tag. Nothing feels worse than trying to grieve, while simultaneously worrying about coming up with the money to pay for it all. Times are hard for everyone, but they just got quite a bit harder for us.
My siblings and I don’t like to ask for handouts, but due to the level of expense, we decided that we would try our hand at a fundraiser of sorts, to help pay for the arrangements and to provide her with the service that she absolutely deserves. 

We don’t want anyone to feel obligated to donate, and we sincerely thank anyone who decides they would like to help us through this incredibly difficult time! ❤️

Sincerely,
Derrick, Bethanie, Kristin and Meagan
