Believe it or not there are those of us who wish to bury our loved ones with dignity but cannot afford to and have no one to turn to. When my daughter died unexpectedly at the age of 22 years young if it hadn't been for the kindness of friends coming through for us I don't know how we could have buried her. At that time I vowed I would put away money to bury my other family members, (who also had no resources for their burial). We all work hard, (I work in social services). But with life being as it is, we barely make enough to cover our immediate needs, nothing left over for a savings. Recently my mother died. I had no money to bury her. During our grief we met with funeral homes who told us they could bury her for only $5000.00. At this time of our lives $5,000.00 sounds like $5 million. Thank goodness someone came through with a loan. I have no idea how I will pay him back, but I will, because I have faith. I don't want to see others going through the trauma of having to beg, borrow and plead to bury their loved ones as we did. It is so embarrassing to not be able to bury a loved one. Therefore, I would like to set up a fund for those who are in our situation. Hard working, kind people who just don't make enough to bury their loved ones. Different states will assist with cremation. However, there are those who due to their spiritual beliefs do not believe in cremation. I would love to be able to help others in a similar situation as ours with money to bury their loved ones while respecting their dignity. I thank you from my heart for your assistance.
