Funeral for Richard Bohlert

Our Dad passed away unexpectedly on Jan 2nd at 64 years old. He had a life insurance policy, but it was a few months away from maturing. We learned that we are receiving no help from that policy which were expecting to contribute to his final expenses. He lost his job of over 40 years when Pathmark closed and struggled to get by, unable to work after that due to physical issues. The sudden nature and circumstances has been a burden on my sister and her new baby who lived with him. Anything will help. The total cost of his expenses is around 9k, and we have about 5k to contribute between myself and my aunt's. His wishes were to be buried with my mom, not cremated, and we are just trying our best to fulfill his final wishes. Thank you!
