Fund For Mom's Burial
Organized by: Zette Sunny
My name is Sandra and I want to share my story with you. Yesterday was the worst day of my life and would be my saddest day. I left for the United States 3 years ago for study. God was helping us through but things became very tough for my parents and so they couldn’t keep up with the fees. I came in to this world through the best mother anyone can ever wish for. I would speak of her in the present because I do not believe she is gone. My mom is the most peaceful, hardworking, charming, caring, God fearing, amiable and virtuous person you can ever meet. I was very excited to be done school to make her happy and to start working so that I can also take care of her. Yesterday morning, I received a call informing me that my mom is dead. It was like a dream and I was hoping no one would wake me up from the dream. I didn’t know what do because it didn’t make sense to me. How could my strong mother die? What happened to her? I started asking questions and immediately picked up the phone to call my siblings to confirm the news. My world came crashing. Different thoughts came to my mind, should I kill myself and go meet my mom in peace? Who would help me? Who can I run to? What will happen to my dad who is there alone and has no source of income? What should I do? I couldn’t stop asking questions as to why God takes away those who serve him the most and why he takes the very kind people. Oh friends please help me. I am torn and broken and do not know what to do. How can we plan this funeral? My siblings and I need to go back home and would need money for flight tickets. We also need money to fund the funeral. I do not want to keep my mom in the mortuary for so long. This was not the life I planned. This was not what I thought life would be. How will my life turn out? What do I do? Please help me if you are reading this. I really need your help. My heart is empty and I don’t know where else to turn to. Why me? Why must it be my mom? Why this time? What do I do now? Please help me. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Please help me share my story. Now my mom is gone, who would help me pay my school fees of $23,500? Please my dear friends help me bury my mom and pay my school fees. How can I deal with this?
