Help with Cremation/Services Costs

Early in the morning on Wednesday, June 15 we got a phone call that no child wants to get - my wife Shaina's father Michael had passed suddenly. 

Just 3.5 short months ago, Michael's father (Shaina's paternal grandfather) had passed after a long battle with Alzheimer's. Much of the family's money had gone towards the care and treatment for PopPop, and then towards his funeral services.

In addition, Michael's mother, Nana Carolyn, is currently helping to support 3 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild who all live with her, all on just half the income from PopPop's passing. 

With funds being so tight, money is needed to go towards the cremation of my father-in-law, as well as the memorial service. This will alleviate some of the financial burden, and allow his family members to keep memorabilia to remember Michael by rather than selling his items to cover costs.

Every dollar you can spare will help tremendously. We're asking for contributions to this fund in lieu of flowers.
