Funeral Expenses

David Ransdell Was born on August 28, 1974 to Elaine and Jerry Ransdell in Clearwater, Florida. He was an only child to Elain and Jerry. Dave was a very curious kid who wanted to learn about everything that he could get his hands on. He had the humor of a grown man and had a lot of weird habits. He loved to eat butter and brown sugar everyday after school. Before he started high school they moved to Phoenix, Arizona. Dave went on to Graduate from Ironwood High school in 1992. At this time Dave became quite the daredevil. He had a dangerous love for motorcycles, he had been in several accidents that probably should have taken his life then, but it was not his time. He attended Arizona State University for a short time before he decided that college was not for him. People would call Dave a jack of all trades, he could fix anything. If he ran into a problem he would always figure it out. He was a very driven man and in December of 2009 he met the love of his life Cheryl. They hit it off and were the best of friends for the next 4 years when Dave finally popped the question. He was very traditional about it too, as he even asked her father for permission first. On January 11, 2014 Cheryl and Dave tied the knot in Jerome, Arizona. It was a very beautiful wedding. Just one month after that beautiful day, Dave received a job offer over seas in Myanmar. A global company called Transtel Communications would be the first to offer telephone services to this third world country. Dave and Cheryl thought long and hard about this life changing opportunity and decided to take the offer. Dave flew out to Myanmar and found a cozy little apartment where he would stay for at least the next year. Cheryl had planned several trips to Myanmar to visit her husband. In June 2014 Cheryl and Dave's mother traveled to Myanmar and had an amazing time. Cheryl and Elain came back home in the beginning of July with lots of pictures. Dave had started planing to come home in August for Cheryl's 40th birthday. On July 26th Dave called Cheryl at about 4:30 in the morning. He mentioned that his side was hurting and that he was not feeling too well. He stated that his coworkers were on their way to pick him up to take him to dinner. He told her that he missed her and loved her and that he would talk to her later. Cheryl went about her day like any other, however at 12:57 p.m Cheryl received a call from Dave's boss letting her know that upon arriving to pick Dave up for dinner he found Dave on the floor of his apartment already gone. He stated that he tried to resuscitate him but it was too late.It was at this very moment Cheryl's world just came to halt. Her husband whom she loved so very much was gone, he was never coming home, She would never feel the warmth of his embrace or hear his voice again. Dave died of Ischaemic heart disease/Acute myocardial infraction... In other words Dave died from a heart attack. 
Cheryl and Elaine are now trying to get Dave back home to hold a service and to bury him close to his father. They are in need of $8,000 in order to do so. If you could find it in your heart to donate anything that you can to help with the financial stress this has caused Cheryl and Elaine it would be greatly appreciated. We thank you in advance! May God bless you!
