"The Death of a mother is the first sorrow wept without her" It's often said that today's a gift, that's why we call it the present. We also promise each other we're going to be around for a long while, to wipe one more tear, give that comforting kiss when it's our first day at a new school, when that nightmare was just a little too scary, we tell each other we will always be there.

So how do you tell seven children, mommy can't do that anymore. That mommy has to do it from heaven because she's an angel now. Sometimes we can prepare ourselves, sometimes we can help them understand a sickness. It's a tough one to explain when all mommy did was take a nap and never wake up. Something she does every day, but this time, it was different.

With seven children, and a wife who is not only an incredible teacher and step parent, were asking for a village to help them, help them rebuild when they feel like their foundation crumbled, when finances are hard, help them remember that they aren't alone, an most importantly that mommy was loved and never forgotten.

Randi would give you the shirt off her back, the last crumb of food on the table, a place to stay when you needed her.

This family was never ready to say goodbye, please help these kids get their last five more minutes with the mom who was a best friend, and a super hero to them. Anything will help for the funeral costs and raising these seven young children. Thank you.

As Randi's sister in law and Veronica's sister. I am personally going to be withdrawing the funds and going to be giving them money directly to her wife (Veronica) in person to pay for the funeral service, and any extra will go to the girls.

I sat with you today you know,
I sat right in your chair,
I know I could not see you,
But I knew that you where there…
I couldn’t hear your voice at all,
But I heard every word that was spoken,
I sat with you today you know,
Calm, but yet so heart broken…
I know you follow me around,
I have known it from the start,
But sometimes l am afraid to look,
So heavy is my heart…
I often feel you touch my face,
Or think l feel you near,
But when l try to see you,
Its like you just simply disappear…
I love you more and more each day,
And beg for you to know,
I find it harder every day,
Just to let you go…
I sat with you today you know,
I’m sure that was your scent,
I cannot understand it though,
How you just suddenly went…
I’ll sit with you tomorrow,
If that’s ok with you,
Sometimes it feels the only thing
I still know what to do…
I love you ………..

Thank you so much to everyone who donated, shared, and kept the family in your thoughts. We were able to raise half the money for the funeral, and the family is incredibly appreciative. The service was beautiful and the family was able to spend one last time with one of the most important people in their lives. Thank you so much for making this happen ❤

Thank you SO much to everyone who had donated, shared, or even sent a good thought. As funeral arrangements go underway, the cost we expected was greatly underestimated, although anything donated is extremely helpful, we raised the goal to try and continue to help fund the funeral. Thank you so much to EVERYONE. Thank you for keeping her memory alive, thank you for reminding these kids that they may have physically lost mommy here, but gained a million angels who would never let them down. Thank you ❤
