Our family is putting this in Gods hand to provide the needs to grant our Mother the burial the she deserves.

On 1/31/2012 our mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The doctors say that that removal of the tumor is not an option. This leaves us with the need to start trying to plan a burial service for her. She has six wonderful children that she chose to raise on her own after her husband left the marriage. Although that was many years ago she tried her best to provide her children with at least a hot meal and clothing as she worked and received no support from our father. She raised us to trust in the Lord and to focus our eyes on his face in our times of need. As we grew and started our own families we became simple but humble individuals achieving jobs as Plumbers, Roofers, Nanny's...The need of further education beyond High School was not an option for us. We had to grow up fast and go straight to work to help mom keep up with the families needs. Along the way we lost a sister to Leukemia, our Grandmother to brain cancer and our Grandfather to lung cancer. It is evident that this disease has over taken our family and will continue to do so for years to come. All the time and effort in my Mothers life went to her children and Grandchildren never concerned for her own needs. After a conversation with her last night I was shocked to find that she had never invested into a life insurance plan. When she made me aware of this my heart sank as I knew how devastated my brothers and sisters would be if we were unable to bury he next to our sister. One good thing she did was to buy 3 burial plots next to our sister when she passed. This will at least help a little with her final expenses. I have been doing some research the past couple of day and I am shocked at the cost of funeral service. The ability to lay out 7-10,000 dollars for a service is not an option for us as we simply just do not have the money to do so. Mom always tough us to trust in God and he will provide. But this one does scare me as it is the biggest blessing we have ever needed. So I humbly ask for God to pull through for us once again and assist us in this time of need. He has always manager to bless us with food to eat and clothes on our back and I know he is a powerful and awesome God that will provide if this is his will and if not I know there are many blessing to come our way we just have to keep faith in him as Mom would say "Keep You Eyes Focused on the Lords Face".
