End of Life costs for Sherman Tucker

On June 22, 2019 at roughly 10:30am , loving spouse and father Sherman Tucker passed away due to a fatal vehicular accident while on his way to see family. It was reported that his vehicle was speeding to 85MPH and he collided with a post which flipped the vehicle where he passed away shortly after the accident.

This event is such a devastating loss to his family, as he did all he could to enjoy life to the fullest, despite being a paraplegic. He had a wonderful wife, Hilda, taking care of him, and raised a loving son, Peter. He will be greatly missed by them and all of his family,

This is Peter, the son organizing this campaign and I unfortunately am in a position where I must ask for any help. With this sudden event, we are now in a perplexing situation where we have to cover costs to pay for the following:

-Funeral Home
-Funeral service at a church
-Cemetery costs
-Reception costs
-Hire an estate attorney 

These are the main costs this campaign is going towards, but if we are to collect more, they will be placed toward general utilities to keep his house running until it is eventually sold. We are in the unfortunate situation to ask for money because there are large amounts of debts leftover that need to be addressed, so this restricts our ability to cover these expenses. 

With this money, we will be able to properly lay my father, Sherman Tucker, to rest with his parents in Queen of Heaven cemetery in Lafayette, CA , and we will be able to afford a funeral and reception service for all family members and friends who wish to attend. It was my fathers wish that people remember him the way he was, and have a good time, so I hope to honor his last wish with this.

We also need to hire an estate attorney because there is no will, so we are in a desperate situation to manage all expense and legal matters. Please, if you have just a little to afford, we would appreciate any donations towards this cause to help my family go through this unexpected situation. Thank you
