There are 2 sections to this description. Section 1 describes why we are asking for help and section 2 describes what happened to my father, Billy Hall. SECTION 1: This is a picture of my dad, Billy Hall (to the right). My 3 brothers and I have set this page up to try and see if anyone can help us to afford funeral arrangements for him. I know my dad wouldn't want me to do this in his name. However, due to the financial situation my mom is faced with without my father and the fact that my dad never asked for anything from anyone and the fact that he always did without in order to benefit everyone but himself, we can't help but try to raise some money to fulfill his last wish to be buried beside his Mommy and Daddy in Kentucky. My father had no savings, no retirement and no insurance. As of now, my brother's and I can only afford to cremate our father. We will be going to the funeral home tomorrow to view him one last time and to give the official go ahead to cremate him unless we can come up with the potentially needed funds to give him the service that he would have wanted. If we can't get the funds together he won't even get his one resting wish. My father NEVER asked for anything and wouldn't take anything from anyone and would probably be very upset if he saw me do this for him. However, the family just can't afford to do what my dad wanted. My mom is left behind and is not even able to greive appropriately, because she is so scared she is going to lose her home. They were in debt and the sad truth is that my mother may lose her hair salon, home and belongings very soon if my family and I can't figure something out. I know many people are faced with struggles and financial hardships, but please if you can offer a single dollar it would be a tremendous help and glimpse of hope for us to work through things. SECTION 2: October 6th, 2017 at some point in the evening my father was attempting how to trim a tree in the backyard. He had fallen out of the tree and fell on his left side. His phone was within 50 feet from him. However, he could not make it to it, because he was hurt so badly. He laid there for a very long time and no one was around. He finally grasped the attention of his neighbors while laying on the ground by shouting and holding up his right arm. The neighbors had come and called an ambulance for him. He was still alive when the ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital. However, it is my understanding that he died on the way to the hospital. Per the inquiry of the corner that examined my father, he passed away due to blunt force trauma. The coroner's examination revealed that upon my father falling, he broke his collarbone, shoulder, neck, ribs, hip, and leg. In addition to all of the broken bones he suffered, due to the amount of time that had passed where our father was left uncared for, his central nervous system began failing to send signals to his brain to tell his body what it needed to do and as a result caused him to pass away enroute to the hospital in the ambulance. The coroner said that he may have lived had he been noticed and received medical attention sooner. The last time that my father spoke to anyone in our family was when our mom went to work that morning. We just want to do what is right for my father. If you can do anything please help.
