The family of Helen Petty are one with a purpose to help with support of funeral costs and memorial services.

Helen Petty suddenly passed away leaving very little financial resources to cover full cost of funeral expenses. While at the mortuary-I soon learned mother's life insurance policy was delinquent in covering total funeral costs.

Helen had borrowed several times from her policy to upgrade her home with handicap accessories to help her remain safe in her house. She suffered from osteoporosis and other health aliments.

Helen's first request was to be buried in her homeland England. Sadly, I can't make this wish come true for my mother, but I endeavor to give her a proper burial here in the States. She is now a citizen of the U.S.

My children and I are bit distraught. My mother has $3571.00 in her life insurance policy in which was to be awarded to the beneficiary. The total cost for funeral expenses come to ($4741.99). This covers Helen's basic funeral services. This coverage is exclusive to viewing the deceased-dressing the deceased-and embalming.

There is just that amount ($3571.00), in the life insurance policy to pay all but $1700 of the funeral costs.

As my mother's daughter and appointed beneficiary, I am to ensure she has a proper burial. As of now, my mother's body is still in refrigeration down at the mortuary.

The amount of charity ($1700) needed will cover for the full cost of Helen's funeral services and Give Forward fees for use of services.

I regret I do not have a picture of Helen (mother) uploaded, but will have one soon. This is the first time I ever had to consider this method of service. However; I am greatly indebted to anyone who would give.

You cannot image the relief of stress and peace of mind when donating to this cause. If you might have some suggestions-I will welcome those too.

Saundra Anderson.
