Gloria's guardian angels fund was created to help Gloria rest in peace!

Gloria was an incredible person devoting all her time and love to her family and her church. She was born in Gallop, New Mexico and was named Gloria by Nuns. Gloria worked in the church taking care of priests. For as far back as I can remember, we went from church to church. Hospice care was her life and she loved doing it. Gloria succumbed to C. O. P. D./heart failure, and emphysema. Because of the cause of death, her local cemetery wouldn't let us bury her in the cemetery her family was in because it was considered suicide {smoking related illness}. After {as Gloria would say} raising hell, we were able to get her placed in the same cemetery as her family but we were not able to cover the funeral cost.
With the help of Father Neal and Deacon Dave, Saint Catherine of Siena Parish in Martinez, California, was kind enough to credit the cost of the funeral, because of her devotion to the priests. However, the cemetery will not allow a headstone be placed until the funeral is paid for.
Gloria was a mother of six, a grandmother of MANY, and also a great grandmother. It is devastating knowing this woman does not have a name above her resting place. It is difficult enough trying to find her at the cemetery to give our respects.
I am a struggling father trying to provide for my family and cannot pay for the funeral non-the-less a head stone. We have made several make shift head stones but the cemetery removes them. The only way we can determine which grave is hers, is by placing several bouquets of flowers, decorations and by trimming the grass ourselves. Unfortunately, that is not enough; the cemetery takes away all our decorations monthly.
My Momma deserves a head stone and we can't provide one :( .. I am asking for help. It has been 2 years and we have yet to put a dent in the funeral costs. All help would be greatly appreciated!! thank you for taking your time to reading this.. GOD BLESS ALL!!!
