Funeral Fund For Gerard Gornes

On August 19, 2014 received the tragic and unexpected news that my younger brother, Gerard, passed away at the age of 25.

He was a beautiful person, with an infectious smile, the biggest heart, and a hug that would last with you all week as my sister so beautifully put it.

He was seriously one of the most selfless people I've ever known.

He lived in Georgia and will be being transported back to Ohio where he was born and raised. 

As my parents try and cope with the loss of their youngest child, they now also are faced with funeral costs, burial plot costs, and the fees to cross him over state lines when they transport him back.  The fees alone are around $300 per state and they will pass 3 borders.

All funds raised will go directly to the cost of his funeral.  Anything more will then go to cover any other expense such as travel, as I live in TN and my sister in CO and any debt or bills that must be paid.

Anything will help, and prayers are coveted at this time. 

Many friends have said if there is anything they can do or anything we need to let them know.   This is that anything. Please also pass this along by sharing on your fb, twitter, or other social media pages. 

Thank you.
