GoFundMe For My Mom

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. This photo was from my mothers time at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

  20. Your mom was so beautiful, Allie! I can see a lot of you in these pics of her. I had no idea she was part of the Met Opera. Very impressive! I’m sure you heard many great stories from her time there. Sending you hugs and prayers!


    1. Thank you! She was indeed. And yes her years at the MET are some of my fondest memories of childhood. My sister and I use to go to work with her sometimes and hangout backstage. Thank you for your kind words.

  21. Minha linda me desculpe pela demora em falar com você aqui. Eu não imagino a dor de perder uma pessoa assim. Sei que nada que eu diga vai acalentar seu coração mas, estou aqui para o que precisar, se quiser conversar só me chamar.
    Eu amei a foto da época de sua mãe.

    Olha mais uma vez sinta-se abraçada e confie que Deus te dará a força necessária para suportar essa dor.


  22. Oh, dear Allie, I’m so sorry and you are doing right to asking for help <3

    1. Thank you for your kind words, support and understanding.

  23. You have my deepest heartfelt sympathy and condolences on the loss of your mum.
    She looked gorgeous in the photo above, and I can only imagine how beautiful her voice must have been.
    I doubt you will ever get over her loss, but hopefully, with time, getting through it will be less painful. 28 years later I still miss my mum. Fortunately I was able to afford to see a therapist up until Covid-19 caused her to discontinue her in-person sessions.
    I hope you will continue getting donations through GoFundMe to help defray some of the costs.
    I will Tweet the link again tonight.
    Love and hugs xx <3

    1. Thank you so much your words and donation it means so much. Yes therapy I am sorry she had to stop b/c of COVID. I hope she can resume soon or do it over Zoom and thank so much for your generous donation.

  24. Allie, I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful mother. Sending prayers, hugs and comfort to you my friend.

    1. Thank you for your prayers, thoughts and kindness. And yes she was beautiful : )

  25. I’m so deeply sorry for your loss. I can imagine how it feels, although every pain is different ❤
    I took part in the gofund, I hope you and your family will be better and safe. She now stopped suffering, but she’ll be always by your side, believe me, I know what I’m talking about ❤
