Please help my family bury Jesse

A tragedy struck our family this week, on March 28, 2016, Jesse Willard "Willie" Bowling was found dead along with his friend and roommate, Michele Brewer. They both had been shot multiple times by an unknown assailant in Lexington, Indiana. Jesse was a person who would help anyone and never hurt a soul. He loved his little dogs to no end and would make sure they ate before he did. He was painfully shy and socially awkward but when he became your friend you were friends for life. We, his family, are asking for any donation that will be used for his funeral expenses. His funeral is planned for Monday, April 4. Our family was not prepared to face this loss, as no one can plan for such violence. We would greatly appreciate any donation that will help with his funeral.
