This person has left the following thank you note:
I am truly grateful for your generosity. The pain of losing children is traumatic. The compounded pressure of not having enough money to provide shelter for your family is an unbearable burden. Thank you, to all of you that funded my application. I wrote a song 'This Storm Too Shall Pass'. My gratitude to you for helping me get through this storm in my life.
I Lost My Daughter Two Weeks Ago & The Expense of Her Funeral is Going to Leave me Homeless.
I'm a single mother of five, two daughters and three sons. The past five years have been filled with trials and suffering, and I've lost two children in that span of time. My oldest son was killed in October of 2016, and I mourn him and miss him every single day. This year, on December 20th my 20-year-old daughter suffered a massive stroke, was pronounced brain dead on December 30th, and on January 11th of this year -her 21st birthday- we buried her.
The pain of losing two children has been immense, but in addition to that suffering, the expenses from my daughter's funeral have also put me in a bad place financially. I'm behind on my rent and need help with that expense if I'm going to avoid being homeless. In addition to my children who still live with me, my son's child and grandchild are also in my care. I have a lot of mouths to feed, but I also lost my job to the pandemic in June so doing that has been hard.
I've lost two children in four years, I'm out of work because of Covid-19, and I desperately need some sort of relief from the never-ending series of crisis that seem to be following my family everywhere. Getting this help would keep us in our home, but it would also just restore a little bit of hope for me and my children. We're doing our best to make it through this pandemic and through the loss of my daughter as well, but we need some support. I can't express to you all how much this would mean to me. Just to know there are people out there who are willing to help me through this painful loss would be truly inspirational. Thank you.
