Marilyn's Memorial Fund

Marilyn Unger was a friend to all. She made mistakes as we all do. Her essence has touched many lives as well as mine. 
Do to unfortunate events, My son and I came to Daytona Beach, FL to assist my mom in great time of need and found her in serious crisis in health that led me to care for her 24-7 from August to December including all her financial and home needs. Having only the idea she presented me with to help her with cooking, cleaning and taking her to doctors..etc. , my funds went into a grave situation and my son and I have been working 24-7 to find work, pack, polish this home to pay off debts and possibly have something to move out, and relocate to a place to live and work. Thus far, we've sold a few things in her home for about $500.
She had little in value and clearing, cleaning and re fixing floors etc. has taken every bit of time with packing our things to move. There's been barely time to greive my loss and contact those my mom cherished. 
We're looking to move in 3 months to restart our life. My son, Justice is doing a super mature act to support us at 14 years old and found work as a busboy at restaurant near by 3 days a week. I've been applying for sub jobs in school districts. Given this, our earnings dondo come close to expenses for owed maintenance fees unpaid since December, $3000 for home taxes, $400 for home insurance, moving truck, storage for our things, rent for an apartment, and time to establish school and work in a place that's
inexpensive..such as mobile park home. 
I believe my mother would have wanted us to 
to live in a good place so
I'm moving forward in however its meant to be with trust and faith..and all sweat necessary to provide a home base for Justice and continue to develop into the beautiful young man he has become.
Sometimes you just need a little help from friends.

If there's  any possibility of resources or funds( no matter how small) to support us now or near future we would greatly appreciate this with full gratitude. 
Please feel free to contact us at [phone redacted]
Heaven and Earth
Best to you,
Shari Elissa
