Life is too short

Hi. My name is Zyler Werre, I am the son of Tanya Werre. I am 14 years old and currently have a dying family member- my grandpa. It has been over 2 months of struggling and uncertainty especially thinking each day could be my last with my grandpa. As if watching my mother working harder than ever wasn't enough. Knowing my grandpa could pass any hour is extremely hard on my grandmother, my mom, and me as a teenager recently starting high school. My mom has the responsibility of taking care of all of us and my dog Charlie.  It has been an emotionally painful sight for my eyes taking this all in and it makes me want to help my family even more.

I've created this GoFundMe page to help my mom pay for everything that's coming her way...like funeral arrangements, inherited debt from my grandfather, and the financial burdens that will be added to her current situation when my grandfather passes away. But this GoFundMe isn't only about helping my mother, its about my grandfather. Its just really sad knowing that every minute that passes is closer to him leaving us.

My grandpa is a very cheerful person.  He is always laughing at everyone's jokes and telling small stories that make himself laugh.  Every morning on school break, Id always find my grandpa drinking coffee from a particular mug that he has had since he was a teenager like me.  Pretty soon...that mug will belong to me, and I am going to use it as an adult! I will do everything in my power to keep it safe and use it as a reminder of the person he is and how he use to drink coffee.

I can only hope my grandfather lives past our expectations and we can enjoy our time with him even longer. My grandfather has a special place in my heart.  Since I didn't have a father growing up, he has been that for me.

I hope you will take the time to support us.
Thank you for your time...God Bless.
