Funeral Expenses for Thomas Wilson

It is with a heavy heart, that we announce the passing of my father, Thomas Wray Wilson today. 

He bravely and valiantly fought these last six months through an aggressive cancer diagnosis on Father's Day, with the misfortune of suffering from congestive heart failure for some time, rendering the chemo inaffective and detrimental. 

My father, not always thinking ahead, as was his trademark way of doing things, did not prepare for his future, and left no life insurance for my mother to handle these affairs.

I am just reaching out to try to easy the burden for her, and my family. We were not prepared for this day, emotionally, or otherwise.

His granddaughter was the light of his life and is taking comfort in knowing she was his reason for fighting as long and as hard as he did.

My Daddy was a good man. A flawed man, but a good man who will be missed every day.

As this campaign is to assist with services, I will update when I know more. 

Thank you to everyone for their thoughts, prayers and messages as we navigate through this.
