My mother, Alice Klavun, has recently died in a fire. She was a wonderful and caring woman who talked to people everywhere she went, going out of her way to make others feel good. She had over 5,000 followers on twitter with whom she interacted with daily, often brightening their lives with words of kindness or crocheting toys for their pets. My mother also had an incredible bond with her parrot, Penne, who's whereabouts are currently unknown.
Unfortunately, when death is sudden, there is often no provisions. Due to her illness, she suffered from chronic pain and incurred many expenses and was unable to keep up with the many bills.
The money raised will go toward the burial of my mother, any expenses relating to settling her estate and toward the care of her parrot if found.
