Two weeks ago, in aid of my heartbroken mother, I made the heart wrenching decision to have him moved to hospice, his suffering had become too great. Aug 19, 2018 he took his final breath.
Serving his country as an Air Force Veteran, he had believed his final expenses would be covered fully by the VA. Unfortunately that is not the case, and my mother, who is living dependently on their social security has no funds to pay for his cremation upfront, while scrambling to now figure out how to cover her rent and bills for the upcoming months ahead, as well. While Medicaid will provide a $500 benefit, the funeral home will not proceed with his cremation until we can pay the remainder in full.
We aren’t asking for much, just enough to give him the proper farewell he deserves, and to possibly give a little bit of comfort to a widowed wife who is beside herself with loss and grief.
