Give Sam a proper burial

5Yesterday ,Sept 8th, 2013 , our beloved Sam Stratton passed away suddenly and very unexpected. He was 28. He left behind two children, Sammy and Zahria along with Mom, 2 sisters, and 2 brothers and many friends and his girlfriend Alixandria . Right now beyond our devestation as you can imagine we are dealing with not a lot of money as this was not expected. Sam just had surgery on his ankle this past tuesday and wasnt working due to. Mom, Sarah, and Catti along with Sarahs family are all in Maine while Sam and everyone else are in Iowa. We need to get them home and this could cost around 2,000. His funeral viewing can cost up to 7,000 at the cheapest church we found. We havent even been able to grasp the concept of our Sam leaving us let alone be able to plan. Our hearts are breaking. So it comes to us, our family, Mom (Shoney) Sarah & Catalina (sisters) Steven and jason (brothers) needing family and friends help in our great time of need! Please no donation is too small. I dont know what else to say. Havent ever done this before. Im sure you know how it feels to lose someone close.
