Funeral Expenses for Robert Hansen

Robert, who goes by Bob, is a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War. He proudly served his country as a sergeant in the 1st battalion, 38th field artillery. Bob met his wife while stationed in South Korea, and had two sons, Robert Jr and Steven.  Bob was diagnosed recently with terminal liver cancer which has aggressively spread. He is undergoing his final stages of life in hospice care at home. We are planning his services and plan on placing his ashes at the national cemetery in Birdeye, AR. However, due to Covid-19, much of the financial burden of the burial and memorial services has been placed in our hands, due to the cemetery not allowing graveside services. This means we will have to pay the funeral director to arrange services in a chapel. Bob's last wishes includes being buried with military honors, and we are trying our hardest to fulfil that wish. Any contribution made will allow us to worry less about the costs and more about making his passing more comfortable on him, as well as assuring him that his wishes will be fulfilled.
