For Charlette to Lay Navaras to Rest

My brother Navaras Thompson died unexpectedly on Friday June 20th, 2020. My family is overwhelmed by his untimely passing. Our grief has now compounded everything we had already been experiencing since the beginning of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.

Navaras has left behind his son and daughter, whom he loved, dearly. My niece and nephew really looked up to their Dad and they admired his entrepreneurial spirit and how hard he worked to provide for them. More than anything, my heart is broken for them. He loved life and would give his last to anyone. He loved to read and was passionate about educating all the young men in our family. He devoted his life to his children. He put so much energy into running his home improvement company and caring for his children. Navaras made us all so very proud. 

He was only 42 years old and he had no known underlying health issues. However, he passed peacefully in his sleep. This is an overwhelming time for everyone, both emotionally and financially. Due to the pandemic, Navaras was trying to keep his small business afloat and he was left without reserve funds. I would like to provide a peaceful ceremony for my family to celebrate Navaras. 

My hope is to bury Navaras with our older brother who passed away in 2002. Losing my second brother is a traumatic experience for me and for my entire family. As we grieve, we need help urgently. Any help you could give my family, at this most difficult time, will be greatly appreciated and never forgotten.
