I am writing to you to ask a favor. I hate asking people for help but I’m in kind of a desperate situation right now and I wasn’t sure what else to do. I could use all the help I could get. This will ruin my anonymity but the problem is bigger than that at this point.
About 3 months ago my grandmother passed away from cancer. We had the funeral service for her and it was beautiful. This was in the winter time (almost spring but temperatures have been unusually low here this year) so we had to wait to hear from the cemetery to be able to bury her. Fast forward to now and my grandmother still has not been buried. This is not because of the weather but because of an inability of the family to pay off the remaining balance to the funeral home. The youngest daughter of my grandmother has basically denied all responsibility for helping with paying, for contacting Cancer Society of America, or for doing remotely anything to help.
We have been trying to raise funds so my grandmother can be buried and it’s not going well at all so I set up a Go Fund Me page. I have attached the obituary for my grandmother to the campaign so hopefully everyone feels a little better about donating. I’m open to any questions anyone might have about it as well. I’m on here to ask everyone to visit the campaign and, even if you can’t donate, share it wherever you can. On facebook, wordpress, tumblr. Anywhere you can would be amazing. At this point the more people I can reach the better. Thank you so, so much for your help and feel free to comment me at any time.
