Help us pay for funeral expenses

As many of you know our Dad was found on Tuesday Dec. 19th unconscious in his driveway. Apparently he fell and hit his head and had a lot of trauma to his brain. He was in a coma for a week. We feel like he fought hard and we had hope several times that he was going to make it. But we had to make a decision to take him off of the ventilator and he passed away yesterday Dec. 26th. This was very sudden andunexpected and he didn’t have any life insurance. Dealing with all of this at Christmas was very hard. We all have children and grandkids so we were already financially drained. We tried to make Christmas as normal as possible for all of them that is what Dad would have wanted. Today we met with the cemetery and funeral homes and we have some money but we are coming up about 2000 short of what we need. Our dad was the best dad and Pawpaw in the world. He loved his family so much and would do anything to take care of us. Everyone who knew him loved him. A lot of people have asked us to help and wanted to donate something. So we decided to do this go fund me. Never, ever something that I thought I would do but every dollar helps. So if you would want to help us please donate anything. We are a huge family and if everyone would give $5 or $10 that would add up to a lot really fast! If you can donate thank you so much and if you don’t have money right now please just say a prayer for our family. Dad has 4 daughters, 15 grandkids and 11 great grandkids! All of us love him and miss him a lot and would appreciate all of your prayers. Thanks in advance :)
