A fitting farewell for Rory

This is the beautiful Rory Nicolaas Bakker. Rory was born with a very rare neurological condition that impacted severely on his health. His beautiful parents and sivlings6have devoted their lives to keeping Rory as well as possible and helped him live his best life. This as you can imagine has drained them both emotionally, physically and most of all. Financially.  Richard and Kaitlin had to end their careers to give Rory the 24 hour intensive care he needed. Hundreds of hospital visits. Medical equipment and a car modified to transpost Rory. 
Tragically. On October 22nd at 552pm. My little friend Rory left to collect his wings. at just 12 years old.
This has left his family distraught as you can imagine.  They are swamped with outstanding bills. And now need to find the money to give their son the funeral he deserves. It's consuming them trying to think of how to find the funds. Can you help them please?
