Funeral and final expenses

$600 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 7 months
Patty post lived in Wellsville her whole life.  She passed away on the afternoon of November 8, 2018 unexpectedly.  She had worked at Texas Hot Restaurant since 1981 and that was like my second home growing up.   Unfortunately she did not have plans made or a burial plot purchased so I am trying to raise money to pay for her funeral and other expenses.  Anything that can be offered is greatly appreciated. 

Thank You.
Angela

Patricia Post – Eulogy – November 8th, 2018
Memorial Service – November 12th, 2018

On this somber occasion, we gather. Not just to grieve, but also celebrate the life of Patricia Post, affectionately known for so long to all of us as –– “Patty”.
Dearest Family and Friends – To Everyone who was endearing to her, and all who Patty felt endeared to, throughout her years. Yes, it is true; Patty left so unexpectedly and too soon. Each of us has experienced such profound loss and grief at one time or another. Heartfelt in these moments, we embark upon reminisce and reflection, as testament to the people we have embraced, loved & knew, in everlasting light of all with cherished memories and solemn grace.

Essential ingredients in life, is akin to a recipe for how we wish to live it. Years passing are the milestones and chapters of our personal stories & experiences. We sometimes wonder about them, but perhaps not often enough. Beyond the past, present or even the future, it is what lay within our hearts that define us. There’s an hourglass comprised of each & every day, which presents challenge and opportunity to make the most of what life may offer, or may take from us.

As our thoughts endeavor to seek answers, encouragement or reassurance, we do so with determination to endure; because it comprises our human nature. The caring, compassion and understanding express themselves as currency of the heart, to nurture the idea and promise of hope, even when we may need to brace ourselves in the face of sadness or in bereavement. I’ve heard it said we each grieve in our own ways. It is intimately personal, felt deeply, to be sure.

Yet, life is surely a blessing, from our own birth to our very last moments. Our ability to recognize and value the beauty we see in others & the world around us. Our hopes & dreams are as horizon is to sky, & the meaning you give them. To be a blessing to those you hold dear, brightens their day and enriches their life. You can tell, by noticing how people react. Do your best by doing what you can. Heartfelt gratitude is its own reward, as is the inspiration of a good deed.

I was privileged beyond knowing Patty for over a decade; being regarded as immediate family. There are experiences and moments beyond words that defy poetic descriptions told or eulogized. In Patty’s private time, she offered inspirational support to her daughter Angela and myself, most prominently when Angela graduated nursing school and in my campaign for public office.

Thoughts of being inconsolable; Time surpasses the tears. Caring is the universal sign language of healing. We are measured by days & how we live. Each one preciously irreplaceable, like a person’s spirit when truly missed. Patty – Thank you for sharing your life experience with us in the blessings & grace of your humanity and understanding. May you ascend to your dreams…
