Funeral and Trust fund

It is so hard to think about what we are going to cook for dinner tonight, or who is in control of the remote. But do you know what is the hardest thing of all? How do we greive for the loss of our husband, father, or brother. Then you go to the funeral home to make the decisions and see that final cost on a piece of paper. We look at each other and then...Now what.
We never think of that.
That is where my sister in-law and nephews are at. My brother in-law lost his life on the night of Aug. 27th. They are going through so many thoughts and questions that I hated to see the looks one everyones face as the lady at the funeral home tells us all that they have to have the services paid for before the day of the visitation. WOW... 
Lonnie was just a great man along with every other nice and sweet thing a person can say about another. He was also a decorated soldier in the US Army and served in Desert Storm. 
I have heard some honoring stories from people he had served with that I would let him have my back anytime and this time I am trying to have his.
I hope we can all pull together and help Tina, Jake, Jesse, Austin and Brodee with the expenses. Anything extra with be put in a trust for the boys for later as they need. Thank you so very much. I know I am forgetting things to say so I will say I'm sorry now.
