Gruenloh Funeral Fund

Tom was the kind of person everyone wanted to be around. He was a free spirit, happy, funny and once he made up his mind there was no changing it. He loved his wife of almost 9 years (anniversary just around the corner) and adored his 11 year old son and 7 year old daughter.  Tom loved the outdoors and couldn't think of a better vacation then going hunting, fishing and camping. His legacy was to make sure his children were capable of protecting themselves in the future and he made sure that job was completed. Those children can shot guns better than most adults I know. He did a great job as their father up until now and I couldn't be any prouder, and his children will attest to that. Unfortunately his wife and children still need him and at the young age of 30 you just don't think something will happen to you. 30 year olds are just not financially prepared for an untimely death and a mother of 2 young children can be extremely burdened with the cost of a funeral and then go from a two person income to a one person income will be devastated to this family.  The wife is solely in charge of the final expenses and would like to give her husband his final wishes of a burial near his mother at Sacred Heart Cemetory. Their immediate family can only do so much, they really could use some outside help as soon as the end of the week, if anyone could please see inside their hearts to help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your time.
