Lay Robert to Rest with his Momma

(Note from Angelica: I am helping out my cousin Fidel who is Robert's older brother, he has written up a letter for all about his beloved brother Robert and he is seeking out assistance. Here is Fidel's letter):
Dear friends and family, my little brother Robert was a very special young boy in a mans body as he had a delay in his mental maturity.  Ever since Rob was little he was terrified of doctors and as a result, even lost a finger from a spider bite that he had hidden from everyone that later developed gangrene. His phobias and extreme fears of needles and doctors played a major part of him dying so young... Robbie had been suffering from depression and his weight had skyrocketed out of control from 200 lbs to 445 lbs in just  a little over 2 years.  Robert had developed blood clots in his lungs and waited too long before finally being so sick and could barely breathe that in desperation to save his own life finally agreed to the pleadings of his family to go seek medical attention. Unfortunately, the blood clots had been developing for a period of time and had become very large and there were so many that the medications that they used to treat him were of no use to attempt to reverse his condition.  Robert's lungs and other internal organs were damaged beyond repair and at the end he was on full life support, with the respirator doing all of the breathing for his dead lungs.  Robert was 38 years young at the time of his death.  It was a complete shock to all who knew him best.  He was preceded in death by his mother who also died from developing blood clots 11 years ago.  Friends and family please help me lay Robert to rest with his mother her baby boy.   His spirit is in heaven and he is free to run and suffer no more.  But his body needs closure and his family is asking for your help with his final expenses on the Earth.  Thank you for your love and prayers, any amount you can contribute is so much needed and appreciated.... Thank you, the Gonzalez family.
