John’s Funeral expenses

I’m raising this for my aunt Nancy and her son. Her son unexpectedly passed away in their home on 12/31. He didn’t have life insurance and they aren’t in a spot to afford the funeral all on their own. Her son was only 35 years old and he was found by his 18 year old niece. I couldn’t imagine the pain in their hearts when they woke up that morning. John was a loving and caring soul that would do anything for his family. We aren’t sure what could have happened to him as that’s to be determined, but in the mean time financial stress is the last thing I would want my aunt and other cousins (his siblings) going through. They were all very close and always lived together, never lived a day apart. This will be a hard thing for them to get used to. My heart is very heavy right now making this. Any help will be appreciated. You can donate through here or directly to my family. His brothers were Anthony Reis, & Ronald Griffith. Sister in law Amy Griffith. Mom is Nancy (jimmy) Reis, or my mother, his cousin, Tressa Schlesselman as this is hitting her hard as well and she wants to do everything she can to help our aunt.
