Gary Cates - Funeral Expenses

Hi, everyone my name is Malik Windley. December 20th 2020 I lost my Stepfather 5 days before Christmas. I was sleep in my bedroom when I heard loud screams coming from my mothers room. I got up ran to the front of the house to my mother’s bedroom and I saw my stepfather(Gary Cates) laying right next to my mother,with no pulse . The ambulance was called prior to me walking into the bedroom. When the ambulance arrived, they told us we weren’t allowed inside of the bedroom during the incident , my mother and I sat in the living room, hoping that they would revive him ,and he would start breathing. A few moments later an officer walked in and told us the news that Gary passed,Gary fell asleep and never woke up . Now my mother and all of our family are stuck with figuring out the expenses of Gary’s funeral. Gary didn’t have life insurance so none of the expenses of the funeral will be covered . So if you can help contribute towards the cost, anything will help.
