Jenkins Family Funeral Expenses

On March 1, 2020, Ken Jenkins, unexpectedly passed away after two emergency surgeries in the hospital.
He leaves behind his wife of 30 years, Heather, his heartbroken daughters Charlena (41) and Madi (age 23), his granddaughter Abigail (12) and his grandson Jack (age 5).

Given the suddenness of this whole situation his family is completely unprepared to handle a funeral and all the costs that go along with one as his family isn't in the best financial situation.

Ken had just made mention that he was looking for a small boat so that he could take Jack out and teach him to fish but unfortunately his life ended too soon.

Jack does not know how to say goodbye. He has not left his “papa’s” dog, baby girl, alone, saying “baby girl is mine now cuz papa cannot take care of her anymore.” He was rocking her, telling her that everything will be ok. Jack will miss so much not having his papa in his life.

We are not asking for much. Really anything you can give will be appreciated. We desperately need help with the funeral expenses as this was completely unexpected. If anything is left over it will go to helping his family with Ken's remaining bills and helping his wife, daughter, and grandson get through this difficult time.
