my dear brother

My brother whom I love and adore needs  me. I am in Australia and he is in Switzerland. He is a 53 year old who last year while working and living in zurich met the first true love of his life. They married in Zurich 3 weeks ago.
After a one week honeymoon they returned to their home in Zurich on Saturday September 30th. On Sunday morning my beautiful new sister in law was unconscious. Her heart had stopped. Life support was terminated yesterday and today October 9th 2017 she passed away. 
All his family is in Australia and we are doing as much as we can to support him but something we're struggling with and that he is facing, is paying for wedding expences and funeral costs etc...
Just like many of us they based the spenditure on 2 wages. No one would expect such tragedy to befall them at such a wonderful,happy time. She was a loving, generous and happy woman. This is truly the most horrible shock for all of us.
The bills are coming in now and the funeral costs will be another financial burden that my loving, heartbroken brother is having to think about while being overcome with grief.
All money donated will be sent to him by the end of October. I'm hoping we can ease his pain just a little by removing some financial stress and reminding him that love is all around him.
Any donation you can afford would be appreciated beyond measure. I love my brother and my sorrow is overwhelming....

Thank you in anticipation
