August Cruz Cremation and Buriel

$3,583 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 48 people in 10 months

With so many details left unanswered my boy decided to close the door on his lifestory. We all know it was too short for the light that burned so bright in him. His brother, sister and I have planned to have him cremated in Florida where he lived and brought back to Buffalo where his Mother is buried. Prayers and voices of friends and family are truly carrying us through these initial days of torment. I lopk forward to sharing stories of how he touched so many people in these coming days of rememberance.If you can help us make these services possible within the next couple of days it would help to  bring his passing  dignity and beauty. 

Thank you most graciously

I cannot say for certain,
Who I really am.
I don't have a dream,
or any real master plan.
I'm just an ordinary man,
or so I'd like to believe.
It's my own remaking that I cannot conceive.
I'd like to give credit to a creator,
But no hand from God, have I received.
I listen to the voice of the Devil,
But I am not deceived.
It's in the comfort in sin,
That I am relieved.
This world is lost,
And not one has found it.
We're are just Nature's mask,
and by her warmth and core,
we are bound to fit.
We are so much like her,
primal and unforgiving.
It's through the pain,
against all grains,
the fruit that life wields can be obtained.
I just pray to the God I've created,
That my own can be claimed.
That has to be reason enough to continue living.
