The family and friends of Pacita and Raymond Jackson are uniting to raise money to help cover the cost of Pacita's funeral expenses.

In November of 2010, mom was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and had to have a pacemaker put in. Shortly after, she had to stop working due to her medical condition. She was stable for a while, but then in May 2012 took a turn for the worse and had to be put on a ventilator. At that time, we were told that we were lucky if we had 6 more months with her. We hoped and prayed that she would make into spring of 2013 so that she could meet her new grandchild (eldest daugher's first child), but unfortunately, she passed away on Wednesday, the day after her eldest daughter's birthday. The family is rallying to make arrangements for a proper funeral service and burial, but since dad is on limited income as a retired Navy Veteran, it has been challenging. He has done his best to maximize his military benefits, but has had to get a loan to cover remaining expenses. We are hoping to raise money to offset these costs and shorten the life of the loan in order to reduce his stress as he also has medical conditions that could be life-threatening (hypertension, diabetes, etc.) Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
