Hello my lovely readers. I want to thank you all for your kind words on my last post. As one can imagine losing one’s mother is not the easiest. And things could not be more challenging in these times of a pandemic. Though we did not lose our mom due to COVID but from complications of cancer. Sadly my mom did not have life insurance. I wanted to have a much simpler funeral but my sister wanted a full burial. Unfortunately she does not have the funds to pay for the funeral so for the time being it is on me to pay for it. Funerals are quite expensive and the bill was over 10k. I started a GoFundMe to raise 3k to help off set the costs. Any contribution is appreciated I know we are living in trying times and funds are tight. Thank you all again for being such loyal readers and again for all your kind words.
