Funeral expenses for grand nephew

My nephew Thomas Jett 11, on the right lost his life Monday, May 18, 2020 due to a drowning accident in the Ohio River.  He was one of eight children born to my nephew, Joseph Jett and wife Janelle.

TJ, as we affectionally called him, was the name sake of my dad and looked just like him only with a lighter complexion.  TJ was very loving, smart and always willing to help in any capacity when he was able.   He adored his dad and cherished his mother.  Although he was my grand nephew, he was like a son to me.  My husband and I got to spend time with him and the rest of his siblings just two weekends ago.  My heart aches like it never has before and I hope to never ever experience anything like this again.

Since the family does not have any life insurance, funds raised will be used for funeral expenses and a headstone, which I will be in charge of the final expenses.

TJ was the third born son and leaves to cherish his memories, parents, Joseph and Janelle Jett, older brothers, Joseph Jr, James, sisters, Joelle, Jazelle, twin sisters, Areona and Ariel and youngest brother Terrelle Lee.

Any amount donated to the family will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
