I am a Roman Catholic, and the beliefs of my church prohibit the scattering of my remains after my cremation. Not only can my ashes not be scattered, they must be put in a final resting place. In addition to the expense of my cremation, I also need to pay for a burial plot. I have found a Catholic cemetery in which my urn will be entombed in a mausoleum, which is the least expensive alternative. I have found that these costs are far more than I anticipated and since I live on my disability pension, I do not have enough money to pay for it all. I fear that I will not be able to cover these expenses prior to my passing and I am now turning to my friends, family and even strangers for their help. I have never been one to reach out and ask for help, but in this time, my final hours, I have realized that God is far more important than my pride.
So to all who read these words, I thank you in advance for any help you can give me. For no matter your religious/non-religious beliefs, I am eternally grateful for you helping me stay true to mine, whether you agree with them or not.
God bless you.
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
