Our father, Harold (Harry) Rusho passed away yesterday Sunday 6/12. In February he was diagnosed with a case of sever pneumonia. He fought very hard, and I don't believe he expected anything to happen to him. After a surgery to put in a larger tube to help drain the fluid off of his lung he never fully recovered.
My Dad spoke of finding The Lord. Myself and my 2-sisters were able to come visit with him this past week. He was at peace, as he transitioned from this life to a better one.
My Dad wants to be cremated so we are trying to honor his wishes, however, my dad had been on dialysis for many years and has incurred quite a bit of medical debt not including the recent stay.
The quote I have been given for a proper cremation will be between $4,500 - $6,500. Yes, I know this number is insane. I am working to find a better price anyway possible. So this is the worse case, but we must plan for the worse.
If he is cremated through the city he will be cremated with others (yes that is sick) and we will not be given the ashes. We can not let this happen.
If you can help in anyway, we will appreciate it very much. If you can not, we understand, but would ask you to think about him and wish him love in his new wonderful home.
If there is any money left over it will go to finalize any other dept Dad has incurred. His wonderful neighbor has taken on much of his debt.
