Hi, my name is Bonnie Starling.I am the daughter of the deseased my mother was a beautiful,almost 49 year old female who was a single mother of six children.She worked most of her life as a class B dairy truck driver.She also worked in the dietary feild of the Northeast Florida State Hospital.She had her grouchy times like anyone else and worked very hard, until she started getting very ill. She has traits of the lung disease called COPD, and Asthma,and emphyseima in her family history,she also has relatives who have the same disease and are getting very ill.My mother went home to Jesus July 30,2012 and was born on August 15,1963,she was very well still a young woman. Her passing occured unexpectedly,at Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville,FLorida.She was diagnosed with a small trace of phenimonia in her left lung.When she arrived at the hospital a week and a half prior they did not expect her to make it through the process of putting her on life support(a machine induced breathing machine that breathes for you).She struggled on life support for 1 week before her lungs were able to start breathing on their own,then she was put on a Bypap machine which forces air into her lungs to release high levels of CO2.It also allows a shallow breather like her to breath deeper.She fought so hard all of her life and I watched how hard she fought to try and get better,but one night when no one was there a Hospice person went in to ,my mothers room and convienced her to sign a DNR form (Do Not Resucitate) meaning if she fails to thrive they will Not help her)All she wanted was to be free from pain and agony.Nonetheless,my mother did not have life insurance,and the insurance agency we did apply to would not except her with her medical condition or history. I beleive my mother deserves a proper burial for the contributing life she lived,she gave all she had to anyone who needed it,and i would give ANYTHING to GIVE her a proper burial.The Funeral Home Forbes Funeral Home is willing to contribute to her being buried and reducing all his rates and provide everything she needs for $3,500.00 which is an unbelievable price but i have no way of getting the funds. We have no other family besides my mother, we have no stocks bonds or caladeral.We have no bank accounts or the credit to take out a loan,we have nothing,what we can do to contribute under our circumstances is pawn our car titles and anything of value,to try and get the money,the only problem is I dont have long to get the money or she will be cremated,my mother was scared of being cremated and was scared of diying,Yes she did have Jesus in her life she was just scared of the diying process and so am I!But I am Positive she went to HEAVEN.And im also positive she is looking down and seeing how determined I am to Bury her and and all the people who never knew her but are so willing to help with the funds to give her what she deserves..And I also know how THANKFUL she is to all of you have have the kindness and giving hearts that all the people who are sending money to cotribute.I want to say Thank You so much for all of your help...The Lord will pay you back and God Bless you all!
