Ryu's Funeral Expenses

Just this past week, I had asked the kiddos (my nieces and nephew) to write a Christmas list for me. Their mom sent me a pic of it just a short time later. And at the very top of Ryu's list, he had written "You forgot my birthday present" and I literally laughed out loud because I did totally forget his present this year. The very next day, I bought headphones for him and a gift for Kaylee whose bday was last Saturday. The intention was to get the kiddos at some point this weekend to give it to them.

I will never get the chance to give him his bday present. Ryu left our world and Heaven gained a sweet angel on Saturday afternoon. He was was incredibly too young to be gone. Only 13 years old. He was his mom's first born, my brother's second child. He was a big brother to 4 siblings, a nephew, a cousin, a grandson. My heart is so heavy and this pain is indescribable. Please tell the ones you love how you feel. Hold them close. Don't take them for granted. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers as this will be a very tough road to navigate.

Rest In Peace, Vannara Ryu Man 9/1/2004 - 12/2/2017

We are asking for donations at this time to cover the cost of his funeral. No parent should ever have to bury their child or carry this burden. Anything and everything will be very much appreciated. God bless!
