Funeral costs for Tom

To ones that have seen this, I've had to raise the goal of the fundraiser because I made it before the funeral arrangements were made and it ran quite a bit more than we thought. My Nephew Tom Burch was killed in a hit and run accident on Gay Street Bridge in early morning hours of 9-17-17 which also seriously injured his lifelong friend. His Mom and Dad could really use help with his funeral. Tom was 29 years old and had a lot of life that he loved left to live. He had the sweetest heart and always wanted to give. For his birthday this year he asked for donations to St. Judes instead of anything for him. He was able to raise his goal and was so happy. You should never have to worry about costs for burying your child because you're not suppose to bury your child. Any donation would be greatly appreciated to help his Mom and Dad. Thank you very much in advance. We Love and Miss You With All Our Hearts Tom !! Stay strong Jen and get better you can do this.
