    I have heard from someone who spoke to her that this money is being directly used for Jake's funeral, which she could not have afforded otherwise. (((( thank you to all ))))

      Made my contribution.......God bless everyone. Eventhough most of us have never met we all have been fighting the beast together. I have always said that I have learned more from all of you my peers and mentors then I ever learned in any hospital.

        No, noone is giving anybody a dime. And when I tell it, they say the sosial system is much better.

        I am so happy for the money Betheny is getting. I want Jake to have a nice funeral so Betheny can think back and know she did it the way she wanted with respect and dignity. It is not the money or the extra things that matter when it is about a funeral, it is the feeling that you did it the right way. A friend of me lost her husband and she was playing Blood, Sweat and Tears, "When I Die" inside in the chapel the whole funeral and it was real loud and the most honest funeral I have ever been to.

          If giving money is the only comfort we can offer, I am proud to have been a part of this magnificent gesture.

          I am glad that everyone chipped in to give Betheny the options she needs to feel a little less pressure at this terrible time. Not that anything can ease her.

              Thinking of Betheny tonight and hoping she's coping with people around her.

              Does anyone know when the funeral actually is?

                    I just sent in a little more money. We have done real well getting up to around $3700.00 so far, simply amazing, this community should be real proud of itself, but I want to see this hit $5,000.00 at least within the next few days as I know the funeral will probably cost that much, maybe more. Good job everyone!!!

                    I'm still can't believe all that has happened. Jake was too young. This is one of my favorite pictures of Jake and Betheny.

                      Mine too Curt. Weird I was just looking at that one on my computer.
                      RIP Jake

                        Remember Jake and Beth from the event in DC. So sorry to read this news.

                          As of right now, we have $4,130 in contributions from 60 contributors. After taking out paypal fees, that comes to $3989.57. I am adding in a little more to round it up to an even $4,000. I am going to the post office to overnight ship it right after I type this up so she will have it in her hands tomorrow. Any more money that we raise will go to her later in the week.

                          We are amazing here, we are circling one of our own with love.

                          Edited to add: the post office cannot guarantee it for tomorrow because the area is so rural, it is guaranteed for Wednesday. Just FYI. Also, I took a picture of the check and have the tracking number, all of which I am sending to addiesue for the utmost transparency.

                                The last thing I want is for Betheny to be worrying about money right now. I'm glad to hear it will help. Thank you again, Ami. And thank you to everyone who was able to pitch in, or even give words of comfort. You all are a great bunch
