Mom's final expenses

As many of you know, we were handed a devastating blow September 2nd, when we were told our mother was found dead in her home in Whale Pass, Alaska.  After speaking with the Alaska State Troopers and the sweet cousin who found her, we have no reason to believe there was any foul play, and that mom simply died of her broken heart. As I was told, it looked like she read her book and went to sleep and just didn't wake up.  She is with dad now and we take great comfort in knowing that there is a very joyous reunion on the other side.  

Mom was just finally starting to get back on her feet after struggling since dad passed in late 2014. Due to the circumstances, there is no money to take care of her final expenses.

Since many have expressed a desire to help out, I have decided to set-up this gofundme to hopefully cover the expense of cremation and to fulfill her final wishes to have her remains spread with dad's at one of their favorite hunting spots back home in Wrangell.  

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

 With much love and gratitude -Deann and Jaclyn
