Viewing And Cremation Service For Donte Marshall

It is with a heavy heart for what I’m about to say. My dad (Donte Marshall) passed away unexpectedly on November 17th 2019 with all of his family right by his side as he took his last breath. My dad had a stroke on 11/07 and was admitted into the hospital on 11/08, he had some bleeding in his brain, but was expected to make a recovery. My dad was then moved out of ICU, but later on that night my dad started throwing up and became delirious and confused. The hospital staff immediately moved him back to the ICU where they had to perform an emergency operation to pin-point the cause of him vomiting so much. We were asked by the doctor if they could induce him into a coma to stop the shock and get his high blood pressure down and if they could put a tube for his breathing (life-support). Next thing you know they come back after an hour saying my dad had died for 6 minutes, but they were able to resuscitate him, but he sustained bleeding on both sides of his brain and he was “very sick”. My dad would remain in a coma for 9 days on life support. After several family meetings with the physicians and taking in other health issues that were arising, we made a tough decision to set him free and let my dad rest on November 17th at 5:03 PM Loosing my dad has been a devastating blow to all of us in the family as he was the sole provider for my mom their two dog-kids and also a person that everyone has relied on at some point. We are now trying to come up with the money to pay for his final expenses and his cremation service which cost $4000. We are asking for any help form our family and friends, anything will help. I thank you for taking the time to read this and on behalf of me and my family we thank you for your continued support and love that all have shown.
