Funeral Service for Justin Roman

Donation protected
To date, November 8, 2017, this appeal is nine days old.  It has been nine days of sorrow, chaos, stress and all those other factors that accompany the death of a loved one.  It has also been nine days of an amazing display of compassion, sympathy and genuine love for LuLu and Damon.  I have never organized a fundraising outreach and was unsure of what to expect.  Although I don't anticipate launching any future campaigns, I am honored to have been active in helping to generate the funds that were so desperately needed and to have witnessed such goodwill and authentic charity.  Thank you all for allowing God to use you to bless the Roman family.  This GoFundMe page will be closing in a few days.  May you all be richly blessed for your show of support.


On Sunday night, October 29th, LuLu Roman, Country and Gospel singer and star of television's Hee Haw received the devastating news that her son, Justin, was being rushed to Summit Medical after suffering a massive heart attack.  LuLu and her assistant Kim were enroute back home from an engagement in Branson, Missouri.  She arrived at the hospital where she was told by staff that all had been done to revive her son but that he had died.

LuLu now finds herself facing the costs of a funeral which can be both exorbitant and overwhelming.  Because the loss of her son was so very unexpected and came during a time of particular financial difficulty,  stress has been added to grief.  This GoFundMe page has been created so that anyone who is able to assist her in defraying these costs can do so.   It is a labor of love; something that is apparent with every donation and expression of sympathy and comfort.

LuLu has been made aware of the generosity and kindness of those who have given to enable her to provide a funeral for Justin and is deeply touched by your outpouring of love.

The funeral was held on Friday, November 3rd at Abundant Life Church in Mt. Juliet, TN, with visitation from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M., service at 1:00 P.M. and interment at Hermitage Memorial Gardens at 3:00 P.M.  LuLu's older son, Damon, arrived from Washington to be with her and gave a beautiful and moving eulogy for his brother.

Due to the unforeseen necessity of purchasing a plot, having a better understanding of expenses after meeting with the funeral home staff, and simply not anticipating what funerals realistically cost, our original goal has been increased to $14,000.  Although the funeral date arrived before we were able to reach this goal, we will leave this page open for a short time afterward, since there are still accounts to soon settle.

Please give what you can to help them during this very trying time.  God will richly bless your efforts.

Thank you,
Rhonda Hanson
