My Mother

Unread post by patrick »

For those of you who've known me a very long time, you all know my mom was my world. you know she came and watched trains, boats, planes and many other things with me all the time. She was part of the group of people who cooked at the first group of Durand gatherings way back when and was overall a great Lady. This morning she passed on from an unexpected illness. she'd spent many days at the UofM hospital in Ann Arbor and 6 surgeries were not enough to save her. Being it was just her and I, I'm extremely lost right now. I thought those that knew her, would like to know. I have begun a go fund me page to help me pay for funeral and burial expenses, and I hope the Admin doesn't mind me sharing that link here. I miss her already, like its been forever.

She didn't have life insurance and I have no idea how in the world to set all this up, let alone pay for it.

God Bless.

Patrick,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. I don't think I've ever met you or her. None the less I would like to offer my sincere condolences.
