College Fund For Joe's Daughter

I am posting this GoFundme to try and raise money so that my girls will be able to bury their father. Joe was found dead this morning in the home of his parents. Joe was living there since his mother passed away and his father is in the VA Hospital. There doesn't seem to be any sign of foul play, but we hope to know more after the autopsy. The girls and I have had a strained relationship with Joe over the years due to poor choices that he made in his life and it is no secret that those choices made us sad and angry at times but he was the girl's father and they loved him and I loved him because of the gift he gave me of these two beautiful souls Kristina Elena Ross and Danielle Poteat. Joe really did have a good heart and wanted so much to live a clean life but he was unable to beat his demons. Joe was a Christian and loved the Lord and accepted him and tried so hard to be the good man we knew he could be. He is no longer suffering and being plagued by those demons and walks with the Lord. We would like very much to give him a proper funeral and need your help to do that. Our youngest daughter is in college and our oldest has just started her married life. We have no funds to give him a funeral and would like to know if any of his or our friends would like to contribute to this fund so that we can give him a proper funeral. we will see what we can do to set a fund up. Thank you for any help you can give. Please share this even if you are unable to help. All money raised will be used for Joe's funeral expenses and if any left over will go to college.
