Final Costs for my Mom

Final Costs for my Mom

From Petra Elizabeth

I am raising money to help cover final travel, bill, and misc. costs that are going to be popping up for my mother's sudden death at the end of November. I need to travel to bring her ashes home.

More Info

My brother and I lost our mom very suddenly at the end of November. Both of us really don't make a ton and he has a big family to provide for. She never really made a lot during her life either so it left us in a tight spot covering some of the debt she accrued. This was made to help us offset everything.

I figured I could breakdown the costs of what I know needs to be covered for now. I will try my best to keep this updated with anything we find out. My brother and I are working as hard as we can to get stuff sorted with our limited resources.

$500ish- plane and travel costs to bring my mom home (need by Jan)

$350- covers storage units she still has so my brother and I have time to sort them and bring stuff cross country. ($40-$45 per month)

$1600- Pay off her cremation

The rest is to cover any outstanding bills we might be nailed with and can't pay off. My extended family are still trying to decide as a family what sort of funeral we want to have since it's not a great time of year to travel. We may wait until spring. I would love to save up enough extra to cover a headstone too since my family has a plot in our old hometown already. Thank you for taking time to read this! I appreciate every share and dono we may get to this.
