funeral costs & family needs for Tommy Miguel

My baby brother died on December 23rd. He was 19. My mom's whole life pretty much was dedicated to caring for him because he was autistic like us and needed certain accommodations. The whole house is organized around my brother.

He had been having issues standing up because of light headedness. Our mom took him to the ER, and by that evening (12/19) he was admitted to hospital and by 12/22 he was intubated and sedated. Emergency surgery showed his small intestine had died and there was no way to fix that. He died at 5am on 12/23.

Any funds raised will be put toward his funeral costs (small family service only) and care for our family (food, etc)
If anyone wants to just bring my mothers or me some meals that would also be appreciated.

thank you so much to everyone also for all the kind words this is an extremely difficult time for our family and we are all just absolutely devastated. we are very grateful to all those who have reached out.
