David Franklin Memorial Fund

$25,403 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 256 people in 30 months
It's with very heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to one of our beloved family memebers, Dave Franklin, who unbelievably passed away January 5, 2017, at age 47. It seems unreal to think that someone so close to us has been taken away. He loved laughter like no one else and he burned incredibly bright during his short life. We'll always have his glow in our lives because every memory is a fond one. May you rest in peace, Dave. We'll miss you so much.

We are raising money for his memorial service.  Please help lessen the stress by removing the financial burden from his family, so they can focus on grieving after such a tragic loss.

Hello, My name is Mary Ann Franklin-Nelson. I am Dave's Aunt. I will be withdrawing $2,800 for a deposit to St. Bernard's Cemetary to prepare the grave site and $200 to St. Bernard's Parish for the Priest who will preside over the Friday services. I will be dispersing these funds via two personal checks from my checking account.

We will keep you updated on other expenses as they come in.

Thank you for your support!

The Franklin Family
