At age 45, Brenda McPherson Rawlings lost the love of her life, Tom McPherson, when he died very suddenly and unexpectedly.  With three daughters to raise, the youngest just two-years-old, Brenda's world was suddenly turned upside down.  But she was a strong woman and an amazing mother.  As time went on, however, serious health problems set in and not only was Brenda's world turned upside down again...she found herself as one of the youngest residents in a nursing home...a cruel fate for someone so young. 

"There but by the grace of God go I." 

Any one of us could be dealt a hand like Brenda's.  We are so busy with life that we take it for granted...but in the blink of an eye...our health, our spouse, our independence, our life's savings... could all be gone.  Brenda's girls kept her going.  The last thing she would want is to leave them with a financial burden.  We told them, "Let us help you through this."  We reassured them they are a part of an amazing community.  So we are asking for your support.  Instead of a floral arrangement, instead of a $5 Hallmark card....if everyone would just chip in a few bucks...this modest amount would be covered.  We pledge that 100% of your donation will go towards Brenda's final expenses.

Won't you consider making a donation?  On behalf of the McPherson family, God Bless You!  To read her full obituary, click here:  http://www.fisherfuneralchapel.com/obits/obituaries.php/obitID/376363  We're pleased to announce that the total goal has been met with additional donations given at the funeral chapel this evening.  Thank you for helping with this Christmas miracle - you've eased the burden of Brenda's family and shined the light of hope during this sad time in their lives.

Alyssa, I love you! This picture is beautiful! I'm praying for you and your sisters! And I challenge all our LHS Classmates who are lucky enough to have their parents living to help you lay your mama to rest. We are really lucky and yet we take it for granted! Something like this really makes you stop and think.
