After Losing My Son, I Need Help Taking Care of a Water Bill Please!

My Story:

I'm a retired woman, but I recently set out to begin my own business sewing at home in order to sustain some form of income due to Covid-19. I have over 50 years of experience sewing, and I was slowly building my business up until tragedy struck my family. My youngest son recently passed away, so I've had to handle the arrangements for his funeral. Losing a child is impossibly difficult to deal with, and it's been incredibly hard to cope with his loss.

I'm normally a strong woman, but I have a serious trial in front of me now. In the face of that trial, I want to press on to continue my life and to develop my sewing business because that's how my son would want me to honor his memory. I'm in good health, by God's grace, and I want to remain financially independent while doing something that I love. However, not being able to work while making arrangements for my son's funeral and paying for those arrangements has been difficult for me financially. So, I'm asking for help with my water bill in order to alleviate a little bit of that financial stress.

I've been through a lot over the past few months, and just to know that there are people out there who care about my situation and care about what I've been through would be extremely touching. This help would allow me to breath a little easier, and it would free up some money to go towards other bills while I begin to grow my business. I want to say thank you to everyone who decides to lend me a hand during this difficult time, and I promise to pay this generosity forward as best I can.
