Ben's Funeral Expenses

$1,150 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 20 people in 9 months
On Tuesday January 2, 2018, I found my son, Benjamin dead on the floor. After autopsy, we discovered he died due to an undiscovered incurable heart defect that took him away from us suddenly and without any warning. He was such a dear boy and at age 25 and had his whole life in front of him. He helped care for his mom, who had suffered a stroke and subsequent amputations of her legs and finally died in April 2017. His death is such a shock to our family especially after losing his mom. He will be laid to rest along side her.

In leu of flowers we are asking people to donate to this fund to help us pay for some of those expenses.  The expense of two funerals within a year has been hard to handle.  Any amount would go a long way to help us ease that burden.

We had a very nice service for my son today. I want to personally thank each and every one of my friends and family for their support and love through this time. To all the people who supported us here and offline for your gifts. they will help us pay for expenses even outside just the cost of the burial. Thank you all so much

I wanted to clarify as to the purpose of starting this fund. Some of you may know Ben's grandfather, Gordon Ferguson. He has paid out of his pocket for a majority of the burial expenses. In trying to lessen that burden on him I started this fund to help pay for some of the expenses. I realize that people want to help in any way they can and this gives them an opportunity to help. As a family we appreciate all the help from everyone that has supported us through this. It is wonderful to know that we are loved by so many people.
