Sorry I've Been MIA Yet Again...

Hello everyone. I haven't been around much the last few days because we just had another death in my family. My husband's grandma just passed away--less than six months after her son (hubby's uncle).
This year has been especially hard on the both of us and each our families. There has been death after death on both sides...lots of hardships and loss in 2014.  It feels like any time we recover from a loss just a little bit, there is another one that hits us hard.  It has been emotionally draining and exhausting.

My Grandma-in-Law didn't have insurance. And she was very against cremation for religious reasons.  The grandkids (my husband included) must pay for the funeral and burial totaled at $15,000.  That is ONLY for funeral home and actual burial costs plus the plot of land.
I am trying to raise money in any way I can. I set up a GoFundMe account in case anyone would like to read our story and may feel inclined to help us. Prayers for strength and healing are always welcome as well.  I truly do believe in the power of prayer.
I'm sure many of you had (or are lucky enough to still have) beloved grandparents...please help bury ours if you are able. Thank you.
