Father's Final Resting Place

Hello everyone, we would like to ask for your assistance to help us pay for my father's funeral and medical expenses.  He was a great father and always made sure we had what we needed and would take any odd jobs to make sure of that.  Now, we would like to do the same to him and make sure his final resting place is a nice one.  He is survived by a wife, two daughters and a grand daughter.  This is hard for us to even ask; but we have no choice because we weren't prepared for this and would like to ask for assistance.  My father got a stroke on July 19th, then it continued to get three more strokes.  Due to the many strokes, he was sent to a nursing home to recover.   He had lost his speech, ability to swallow, comprehend  and his  motor functions of his right side.  While at this place, which  wasn't the greatest; but, we had no choice, he was being neglected in the night time.  My mother would stay there from 8 am to 6 pm and I would stop by after work from 7:30 pm to 11 pm to make sure he was being attended; but, overnights, it was a different story.  He was supposed to be re-positioned every two hours and seems like the night crew didn't bother to do that nor change his wet diaper.  Long story short, he obtained pneumonia which caused his passing on 10-04-18 at 0520.  If I could reach six  thousand people to donate $1 that would help significantly and would be greatly appreciated.  Don't want to take too much of your time and thank you in advance for helping us out.  We would like to raise as much as we can so we can pay for medical  and  funeral expenses. 

Thank you,

Maria. Theresa Castellon
