My fathers funeral

As many of you know my father passed away 9/4/17. My dad died due to high blood pressure which caused some of the vessels within his brain to burst. My father bled out in his brain so severally that there was nothing the doctors could do. He had one of the worst trauma of the brain they have ever seen. He was declared medically brain dead and taken off life support within 3 days of entering the hospital.
This has left me personally devastated and very heavy hearted. I have never lost anyone so knitted to my heart. My dad was such a kind, gentle and caring man. He could always light up my eyes when I would visit him. My mom would always call me his twin. Unfortunately my dad didn't expect this or have time to plan for his after life care which is why I am creating a donation page. I leave Oregon on Sept 12th to head back to Hawaii (where my husband and I are full time serving in the ministry) and am trying to take care of my fathers funeral before I head home so I can celebrate his life with my family. I want this horrible situation to bring light to my family. We are in desperate need of help and funds to pay for the expenses. If there is anyway you can help with any kind of donation I would personally be grateful. Please also share this so others can help as well.

You can donate through here or personally send me funds through Venmo. I know many of you didn't personlly know my father but if you could find it in your heart to help I would be so thankful.

Thank you family and friends. Your outpouring of love and prayers have been the encouragement I have needed. When Im feeling down I receive a text or comment and it reminds me to stay focused. I may not be saying much back but know from the deepest parts of my heart IM SO GRATEFUL! We need each other during these times the most and I have felt the love.

I thank you in advance for helping us out and I pray I can be there for you in your time of need as well.
