Funeral Expenses for Grinch

Jay "Grinch" Miller is a Veteran of the US Navy and is a hardworking, fun loving man who has had many hobbies over the years. He loves to: hunt, fish, and spend time with his family. He is an avid Harley enthusiast. He also works at Amtrak as a train Mechanic and is the main financial provider of the household. Unfortunately on 6/11/2020 Grinch was taken to the hospital for a heart attack. He had 3 occluded arteries, so the doctors rushed him to surgery and put in a stent. After a few days he was released and sent back home. Then on 6/22/2020 he was rushed back to the hospital. He had had another heart attack except this one was so severe that it caused a large tear in his heart. The doctors said that the tissue is too damaged and thin at this time to be able to repair it. Therefore, Grinch is currently in a medically induced coma with a balloon pumping his heart for him and a ventilator is pumping his lungs until scar tissue begins to form so that they can sew the tear back together. 

As of right now his wife, Saradawn, is left with sole responsibility for their financial burdens such as monthly household bills, medications, and medical bills/expenses, etc. Even once he does get well enough to come home he will have a long road of recovery before he can return to work. 

With all of that being said every penny raised will go directly to Grinch and his wife to help them recover from not only such a traumatic experience but from their financial burdens as well.
