My wife and I had been married for seven years, and long before I met her several personal tragedies had affected her mental health. She was a victim of a domestically violent relationship with her ex, and was the victim of abuse as a child (in all ways possible). When we met she had two children who biologically were related to the perpetrator of the domestic violence from her ex-husband. We spent many years of happy times together, however these issues from the past were evidently affecting her, and following the birth of the second of our biological children together, she was unable to cope with the demands of our youngest being autistic. A combination of these resulted in the reason she wanted to be at peace, and unfortunately decided she could cope no more. We are a family who consist of a single parent father and four boys aged 14, 12, 6 and 4, and beyond the obvious loss of a wonderful mother, wife and friend to so many, this has hit our family in the worst economical way possible. As a father who is legally our autistic sons carer, I am unable to work due to his needs being met, and sadly have been limited to state benefits as a result of this tragedy. It goes without saying that the days ahead are daunting for all of us, and the additional stress that the funeral and its associated costs are adding to what is already a very difficult position. Eventually it is my wife's desire to return to her homeland for longer term committal to be with her father, however in the shorter-term we all still need to be as close as we can to her. After researching the various options, the figure I am seeking help with is the cheapest that will satisfy the wishes of my wife and yet provide some small comfort to myself and our four children in the meantime.
I am unable to work due to our autistic four year old, who has severe physical and mental needs.
PLEASE HELP US TO GIVE HER THE SEND OFF SHE DESERVES SO SHE CAN BE AT PEACE.
MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE TO YOU ALL
