This fund raiser is to help bury my wife, Bernice

NOTE: As of April 26, 2012. The funeral home has adjusted our bill from $7000 to $2229 as a result of funds previously raised by the family. This brings us much closer to our goal. Thank you so much for your support.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

On November 22, 2010 my wife, Johnnie Mae Bernice Withers was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer which had by then spread to her liver & lungs. We fought the cancer with chemotherapy treaments until nothing else could be done. The cancer took her life on April 6, 2012. I was by her side as she took her last breath. I am a disabled person drawing a monthly disability check. We have an insurance policy with Forester's, however, my wife passed 6 months before the two year grace period matured. So now the policy is in the investigative/contested stage which will take up to 90 days or more before a decision of payment or nonpayment is decided. Watkins Funeral Home in Jonesboro, Ga has informed me that his experience with policies that can be contested will not be paid. Mr. Watkins was kind enough to let us have a memorial service on Saturday, April 14, 2012. At this point I am panicking and asking you compassionate ones to assist me in alleviating these final expenses. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Her Husband,
Ed Withers
