For Daddy...

Dad was a proud military man who raised 5 kids while serving our country for over 23 years. This past weekend, he passed away leaving some extraordinary costs left to the family to try handle during this most difficult time. He will be buried at the National Cemetary surrounded by loved ones. Mom has been left with many bills but his retirement and social security is gone. She was a homemaker who always supported us physically, emotionally and mentally. Now the financial burden has come to try to keep her in her home. That is her wish as she wants to be home with her dogs. Her social security won’t cover the mortgage, let alone her utilities and food. The family will be trying to subsidize her income to keep her at home as long as possible.
