My wife Joanne Cappy, AKA writer/journalist Chris Holly, after years and years of painful suffering passed away at home while on partial life support. She was loved with myself as her primary and sole care giver 24 hours a day. Through all of her pain and suffering she was a Brave, Gracious woman always appreciative of all the care that she was given.

I wanted to give  her the type of funeral service that she deserved as she was the kindest, sweetest woman that I have ever known. This type of fund raising is something that I never ever thought that I would have the need to do, nor would ever want to do. However after years of paying for my wife's medical care and having had to close my business in order to attend to her medical care full-time I find myself with my life saving gone, and needing to pay for all of the medical bills and other final expenses.

I am solely responsible and in charge of her final expenses. And so I am swallowing my pride and asking for any kind of help that people would be kind enough to offer. The funeral service that I planned  at Nolans Funeral Home in Northport New York  was a beautiful service and took place on 1/04/2020. I am however still struggling to pay off her funeral expenses to this date 2/29/2020. as well as all the other medical bills. I know that it is sometimes difficult for people to make donations. I would however be most appreciative of however little or much that people are able to donate to my campaign.

I am eternally grateful for any help that I am given.

Michael Cappy, Husband of Joanne (Chris Holly)
