￼￼Hello My Name is Felicia. I’m the mom in the picture of 4. My husband and two beautiful girls make up the rest of what what our happy Christmas last year. The other picture of the beautiful older woman is my mother. Her name is Ruth.
My mama passed away 03/30/2019. She was tired and had been fighting a loosing battle for about 5 yrs. Kidney failure and congestive heart failure took my mama way too early. She would have been 69 this month on June 19th.
She was an amazing woman and she only ever cared for other. I can’t tell you how many times she gave homes and meals and clothes to my friends who has nowhere else to go or even to strangers who even looked like they needed help. She was basically a saint. Even after she had passed her body went to help others and she donated everything she could down to her last breath and beyond.
The day she passed I couldn’t save her. I tried so hard until the paramedics had to pull me off of her. They tried but that day the world lost one of the greatest treasures it ever had
I’m almost 30. Everything was going good. I was taking care of my mama getting her better. My kids had their Nana with them. I own my home and my car and I have a decent job.
Since my mama passed I had to take care of everything. Which I wouldn’t of had any other way. It kept me somewhat sane to be busy. I maxed out my credit cards and used my savings to make sure she had the ” Party” She deserved. My mama didn’t want people crying at a funeral, mama wanted a party and wanted all of us to be happy and loved. She had a life insurance policy for 20,000 so I didn’t mind spending 10,000 for everything including the party. Well apparently she’s only had that policy for less than a year so it didn’t pay out.
Now my family is drowning. I’m $10, 000.00 in debt and the monthly paying of everything is getting more and more. My husband and I work as much as we can and even overtime but it’s like we can’t get ahead. I don’t know what else to do. I can’t get a loan cuz my credit it terrible from all my maxed cards and I have no rich family to fall back on nor anything of worth to sell.
Thank you for reading our story. Even if you can’t or don’t help. At least you got to meet my mama in some sort of way. She IS truly amazing no matter where she is.
