Grave Marker Fund for Joshua and Jonah

Joshua Nielsen passed away in May 2014 and just the other day (June 2014) his brother Jonah Nielsen Lesiuk has joined him. Both boys were in their mid-twenties. Unfortunately neither had life insurance. Joshua was in between jobs and Jonah was on disability assistance. The funeral funding for them is very minimal. I am hoping that our friends and extended family will consider donating doesn't need to be much because every little bit will help.... combined I'm sure we can cover this cost.

The inital goal amount assisted us in purchasing a grave marker for each of the boys. Without it there is nothing to show where they are laid to rest. I am so thankful for the support that we received from everyone!

I would love to be able to "purchase" the tree that is right beside both of the boys gravesites. I am told that we would be able to plant flowers at the base of the tree
