Help with Shawns funeral expense.

Shawn was a warrior and battled hard with his disease. Shawn learned in March 2014 that he had terminal 4th degree heart failure. He struggled to stay alive and lived on a dubutomine pump until December 2014. Shawn was then approved for an ALVA pump to be placed on his weakened sick heart. Shawn had a few good years from the assisted device. In April 2017 Shawn had two massive brain bleeds (a side effect of blood thinners combined with the pump). Shawn was taken off all blood thinners and sent home on hospice. Shawn was given two weeks but lasted 5 months. On September 3rd 2017 his pump alarmed and was back in the hospital because his ALVAD had clotted off and was turned off September 5th. Shawn struggled again to stay alive for another 5 weeks until October 12th his weakened heart went into a fast rythm (150 beats per minute) and the doctors tried everything to get it corrected.Shawn passed away peacefully October 12th .His final wish was to be buried not cremationPlease help us make his wish come true.
