I never ever thought I’d be in a position to have to ask for help to bury a loved one. Unfortunately I learned my Dad passed away last week after apparently being dead and alone for almost a fortnight. We wasn’t a close family and I alone was his only point of contact. I have 2 half brothers who in the same circumstances as me, cannot offer enough monetary value to help give the man that created me/us the end off he deserves. My dad was a proud man, much like myself and he’d never ever dare to ask for help for anything and this is why we’ve ended up where we are. He never reached out for help. He never made any arrangements for his death despite being friends with a man that ran a funeral directors for almost 50 years. This was his silly pride that got in the way. I am now at a huge loss. I’ve lost my father, and I simply don’t have any funds bar a few quid to give him even the simplest of dignified send offs. Despite my “family” pride, I am hoping that a few of you beautiful lovely people will help give Terry a funeral he deserves.
I say this with a heavy heart and I don’t want to feel like I’m begging even though I am.
