My name is Brittany Heikamp, granddaughter of Merle.
The family of the late Merle Lamb are asking for help to cover funeral arrangements due to no health insurance.
When Merle received the news of his illness they looked into their Health Insurance and that's when it was discovered it had expired, and with this diagnosis with pre existing conditions, he was no longer eligible for health insurance.
If anyone knew my Papa they would know that he was a strong, proud and hardworking man that would never want his family to struggle, especially on his behalf. He continued to his last breath to make sure everyone else was okay, putting his own needs always on the back burner. We just hope with support from the community that we can give him the best goodbye we possibly can because he truly deserves it. Anything will help!
