Help Fund Kelly's Celebration of Life

Organized by: Nairi Melkonian

THE STORY:

There wasn't much time to think of my mom's death as a reality. We focused on the hope and strength to get her through her suffering. Despite her deteriorating health, my mom kept a positive outlook and spread kindness and laughs to all who crossed her path. It was inspiring to see how much of a blessing that she was to others, even in her toughest moments. Throughout my life, when the subject arose, my mom was very clear about her wishes regarding death. She wasn't pleased with the formal ceremonies that center around the sadness of loss. Instead, she wanted a celebration of life with food, music, and merriment. She wanted her loved ones to come together in support of each other, honor her life, cherish the times we had, and help her memories live on. Kelly didn't have any money or assets to aid in the costs of her cremation or memorial. My brother passed away 5 years before her, so I am essentially an only child. I am just barely "getting by" with my own life costs to care for myself and my son. Any financial assistance from benevolent contributors, to help make Kelly's wishes into a reality, would be greatly appreciated

Dear Jody and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I know that she fought the good fight and from what I hear was brave throughout this. May you feel God's love and comfort at this time. I pray that the celebration of her life will be a great tribute to her and to all of you who helped her in her journey. 3 years ago
