Hello my fellow post memebers. Alot of you may know me some of you may not. My name is Karrie A.K.A. Sassy. Monday morning I lost my 33 year old sister Wendy. This is the 2nd sister that I have lost. The 1st sister that I lost 12 years ago was 16. With stacy my parents did not have life insurance on her and by the grace of GOD since she passed away at Childrens Hospital here in Columbus, there memorial Funds Foundation paid for everything to get her buried. Wendy did not have life insurance and she has 3 children. I am the only one to take care of her children and I promised her that I would. Since Wendy was not a minor there is no memorial state funded funds available to help with her burial. Now that I have 3 new children to support and as well as my own they funeral home is wanting paid if course and is giving me some time to try to raise the money or see what foundations may help me. If any one knows of anything or any type of foundations PLEASE  can you let me know!!! I was able to get it down to a balance so far of 5,400 that is still owed. I am 31 years old and never been put in this situation before and am clueless on what is out there for help. As well if you know of anyone who would like to donate any thing to her memorial funds my best friend set a account up at 5th 3rd bank  and can be sent to any location She is also setting some thing up with PayPal per some donors request. Then the bank will be forwarding it to the Funeral home. The memorial fund is listed under  Wendy Henderson/Pennington. If you know of any orginizations or just a personal donation to her fund please pass along the info or feel free to contact me.  Thanks so much 

Hopin To Be The Lucky Ones!!

              Sassy sorry to hear of this terrible chain of events every state has what is called an emergency indigent fund available to it for burial, catastrophic health cost etc. THIS a one time use only channeled to you thru your state health welfare agencies, this will not work if among all members in the household you have more three thousand dollars available in assetsIE 1500 checking, 1795 savings conyact local Saint Vincent Depaul foundation and Salvation Army, this will not also work if parents have ridiculous balances on credit cards not related to illness cost

                  I spoke to SSI today and he girls are eligablefor ssi survival benefits but it will take 60 to 90 days to get it started.  The state will only help in the burial if we cremated her and THAT was NOT going to be a option. So there for they gave no funds. that is why were trying to raise the money to pay for this. I just have to figure out how to get through the next 90 days with the girls and hope that we get enough donations and raise enough to pay for the funeral and to get the girls what they need Thanks for all your support

                        I'm sorry to hear your steadfast descion against cremation I myself am a disabled police officer leaving with no living relatives on a fixed SSDI budget we all have to make scacrifices

                        I opted for cremation with a burial plot and prepaid head stone total costs 1500 dollars i can't see the need for a 5000 dollar funeral.that money you want raise for the children could be otherwise best spent on there WELFARE not whats going in the ground I think you about to learn some fast growing up and not the easy way.

                        Wait to next year when the children go for a review of benifits you better have not collected a large some of money that exceed 3000 dollars or otherwise SSI will be cut off and they the children will have to pay back the differential better you learn the ropes of SSI SSDI

                        These government out pays have VERY STRICT guidlines especially for orphined children and there NOT kind to raised donations applied to out pays NOT related to the children expense

                              There are not  heartless opinion's You don't want them posted because they are facts! I took a bullet in the back on the new york subway to save a women and her child when a man went on rampage shooting in 1986 I guess that's my decision but that young boy went on today to Rutgers and is becoming a Doctor and he actually came to Florida at age 18 to thank me in person.  Sacrifices against ones personal belief's some how go against the flow of your Karma but sometimes they have remarkable results on the future not the present when you look at these children they are blessed they have you NOW what's to say thier future won't require more than a funeral today ? Something here doesn't sound right, any new parent would  save for the children and fore go there personal preferences  of any parent would put that money away for an emergency, I noticed you didn't provide at the Bank a saving account for their future, Why is that?, and why a lottery web site why not donation located a the funeral Home: indicated by by State Law:

                              IT IS 50 STATE LAW HRS34.990 all burial paid services have to be interned directly to funeral home as monies for burial provided No individuals or surviving families members shall maintain a account at a local bankor finnacial institution for such an action.  Individuals attempting SSI benefits must  assign all monies to the funeral home With errivocalble rights to those monies but derect ownership of right to survival with seperate or instituitional interferance; that be a bank, church, or NFP 503.00 orginization

                              SPECIFICALLY an account in the named individual

                               

                               What you are doing with this bank will extend the award for SSI an additional 120 days

                              1-883 772 -3272 SSA

                              I'll post as much of my( state and federal) opinions as i wish to, Don't tell me Ms. SASSY what i can and not say on this web page, I quoted infomation and you think someone would say that's not my beliefs in a passionate plea, that would make sense  BUTyour disregard for someones Else's belief has discredited your plea for help its contain censorship and anger and of all places a lotto blog what stupidity!

                              If I had to raise these children any and all facts from all sources wether or not they go against my beliefs would be welcomed because the SSI for the children comes with automatic Medicare A&B plus D in 18 months and worth far more in the future than 5400 dollars in the present.

                              Your actions might infact jeopordize the SSI award!
