Grumpy Elder Memorial

$1,550 of $1,400 goal

Raised by 20 people in 45 months
My name is Chrystal Perez, and I am Grumpy's daughter.  As most of you have heard, he passed away yesterday. My sisters and I need some assistance raising funds for his funeral/burial in Maryland, where he was from, and to be buried in with our family. We are asking for $500 to assist with paying these expenses. We are already incurring costs, and it is getting difficult to pay them.  Several people from his website have asked how they can help us, and in leiu of flowers or donations, we would appreciate this assistance. Grumpy spoke of you all kindly, and he loved you all. Some of the best conversations I had with him were about his friends from the website. Thank you for making my father and family feel so loved.

There has been some unforeseen circumstances, and Grumpy ' s memorial will need to be pushed back until December 28 at 12 pm. It will be at Ft. Lincoln cemetary 3401 Bladensburg Rd. Brentwood, MD 20722. Anyone who wants to attend is more than welcome to come. I am working on videotaping the service so it can be posted for you all to remember Grumpy. I thank all of you for your support, and continued well wishes.

November is a time to reflect on how thankful we are. Words can't express how thankful I am for all of you who donated. I am so grateful that I will be able to bury Grumpy with his mother and brother. I know this is what he would have wanted. I will be leaving this open until Monday to post the information about the memorial. I thank you all again. I'm still amazed to see how much my dad meant to so many people, and it is a testament to the kind of man he was.

Thank you all so much for the support and generosity. I am overwhelmed by the kindness being shown towards my family. I just received the final quote and it is more than anticipated to bury him with his family. Please continue to share with the bloggers. Thank you again.

Chrystal, Please accept this donation from Anne & Gretchen. We were so fond of your father and his willingness to help us with our website was a blessing. He only pretended to be grumpy; he was delightful to know and we miss him something fierce.
