Funeral fund for Captain Eric Lindquist

Captain Eric Lindquist was a  man who worked hard as a commercial fisherman his entire life to provide for his family. He did not have a pension, life insurance or an estate to speak of. He lived simply, loved deeply and gave of himself fully to his family, friends, and fishing community. Knowing he would not want for his children to struggle to give him the simple memorial services he deserves, we are setting up this fund for the sole purpose of paying for his funeral arrangements. Any donation, even the smallest, will help to offset the very large amount of money it takes to provide the simplest arrangements. This funds goal is the actual amount of JUST the funeral costs. If you prefer, you can donate directly to Karen.
