Funeral Support For the Gunera Family

As fate would have it, our beloved father Napoleon Gunera passed away exactly four years after we lost my grandmother (his mother). Now we're trying to deal with this great loss, but at the same time we have to face the reality that burial costs are very high. My father was a caring and compassionate person. We recall the time he helped a boy who was suffocating and he just got up and performed the Heimlich  maneuver and saved him from choking. He suffered through a very long and challenging illness, dealing with multiple chronic conditions including hemodialysis for five years. We are grateful that we got over seven years with him after he suffered a debilitating stroke that prevented him from working and forced him to retire prematurely. My father was the sole provider for our family and we want to lay him to rest at a peaceful location. However, we are hoping that we can get some help from those who knew him and perhaps other kind people. As a full time undergrad mechanical engineering student, and my brother and mother as his caregivers, none of us were prepared for the exorbitant funeral costs, and we are struggling to come up with sufficient funds for a proper burial. Your support will help our family navigate this challenge and facilitate the transition without his financial support. We're hopeful that one day we will be able to help others in need when we are able to do so. We will be very grateful for any financial support provided to us at this difficult time.

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this. Happy Holidays!
