Memorial Expenses for Brian

Brian died of complications from  cancer 12 days ago. He was at home, which is where he wanted to be.   He was ill for only 12 weeks, which was a shock.  Brian was the light of my life for this past 9 years.  He was brilliant, fun, savvy, had a great sense of humor, and loved life.  To lose him at such a young age of 61 is very rough going.  I am using GoFundMe   to assist in offsetting the costs of an obituary in the local paper and some expenses for a
 salute to  him in a tribute in music (such as renting a space).  So many people have expressed an interest in doing something for him......this is a good way to do just that.  Modest donations would be more than enough when all is said and done.   As his husband, I will be taking care of expenses.    I am also keeping up some CaringBridge blogging (as he requested me to do) for a short time more.   Brian is missed and mourned by many, many people.  Thank you very much.  David
