Funeral Expenses Needed Desperately

Hello. My name is Rick and I have a work teammate of mine named Charlean Knights who's heart is hurting really bad right now. On July 4th, 2017, just 12 days before his 51st birthday, she found out her brother had died unexpectantly. There was no warning, no heads up, just an unwanted phone call. He was in New York. She is devastated but knows that God has called his soul to Him. She has flown him home here to Charleston to be close to family. There was a small insurance policy of 2500.00 she has access to. Funeral expenses were estimated at 8600.00 to bury him or 5600.00 to cremate him. He has a son here who died at two years of age and is buried here. She would like to bury her brother next to his son. The only funds she has is the insurance policy money. She is one of the most devoted Christians I know and is an extremely hard worker. I am asking for my friend's, family, and the publics support to help this stranger in her time of need to raise the funds to bury her brother. No more, no less. Just enough to cover the expenses. I hope you can find yourself to be financially generous to help and if not please pray for Charlean and her family. Thank you!
