Dad's Funeral Expenses

Hello all,

Today, I am asking for donations to help with funeral costs for my beautiful father, Joseph Wenger. On top of all the heartache that 2020 has to offer, this is by far the hardest thing our family has endured. My father has been suffering with congestive heart failure, diabetes, COPD, and now liver and kidney failure, which is going to take him from us. Currently, my father is on hospice care, to make himself more comfortable for the last days of his life. Due to Medicare, all of the hospital trips/stays, medical supplies, and in-patient care, the cost that is needed to help him have become overwhelming. We are currently planning the funeral, but it has been a devastating process, especally due to the cost to hold a funeral.

Our plan is to hold a ceremony at Hopewell cemetery, and give him a plot where he can be close to other family relatives that are also buried there. Being able to hold a funeral is expensive on its own, and also we have the bills that the hospital requires prior to his passing. The cost as a whole is around $15,000, a cost that has put a strain on our financial and emotional circumstances. If you could please, donate anything to help us get through this tough time, that would help us out greatly. As a family, we need to find any way possible to make this most difficult time a smoother process and painless as possible. We love our father dearly, and we want to give him the best ceremony possible. The closest we get to the 15,000 the better. So please, we beg that you can help us out, and make sure he gets the ceremony he deserves. Thank you, and I hope you all can join us at the ceremony.
