Funeral Costs for Henry David Hopps

On Feb 8, 2018 identical brothers,  Henry David Hopps and William (Liam) John Hopps were born to Spencer  and Aleanna Hopps at 25 weeks. Way too early.

February 10th sweet Henry David went home to be with Jesus. We are all grateful for the time we had with him. Such a beautiful baby boy.

The cost of honoring Henry with a funeral is daunting. The kids plan to bury him next to Spencer's grandfather in Bakersfield, but in California the casket has to be earthquake safe etc.... the price is crazy expensive  for a baby of only 12 inches. Then add in transportation costs for taking little Henry's body to Bakersfield/ crossing county lines etc... it's enough to make a person weep. 

In the meantime Spencer has a new job, they are living with Spencer's parents, they are trying to sell their house so that they can be closer to Liam who is in NICU at UCLA. Spencer can't take time off, and traveling back and forth is terribly expensive, and taxing on Aleanna. (at least a hour and a half drive each way on good days) Liam will most likely be in the hospital for at least 2 months. He's tiny, but such a fighter.

We think it's time to let our friends and family know the burden that the kids are carrying,  and let you guys know that  Aleanna and Spencer need your help. The first priority is to help the kids with burial costs. Any extra will go towards traveling money, and if the Ronald Macdonald House becomes available there are parking costs etc that will need to be paid.

There is no pressure to give. Do what is comfortable to you. Anything is appreciated.
