Micheal's Funeral Expenses

I'm Kari Hollis, the fiance of Micheal Harris. I am currently trying to raise money for Micheal's funeral expenses after he took his life unexpectedly Sunday night. I want to share a little bit about Micheal with you all... Micheal and I have been together nine great years and we have two beautiful children who meant the world to him. He was always such a great father to Bradley, who is 5, and Hailey, who is 10 months old. Micheal had a great heart and was a giver, not a taker. He had been employed as a lineman for 5 years, he took his job serious and was such a hard worker as he was the sole provider for our family. He was a jokester, always trying to cut up with someone and trying to make them laugh. He was just always so full of life and everyone who knew Micheal just loved to be around him. Our life took a turn for the worst last week when Micheal lost his job, everything went down hill from there for our family. Micheal had been a previous drug addict and had been sober for several years... last week Micheal turned to drugs again as an escape from feeling as if he had let his family down. I noticed Micheal was no longer his self and on Sunday it was like the drugs had taken over. It was clear he was no longer in his right mind and i could tell it was no longer him that I was talking to. Micheal had begun talking about taking his life and I tried everything I could possibly do to change his mind. He disapeared and I called the police, he was later found deceased. Micheal had life insurance but since it was a suicide they will not help with the expenses. I'm asking for any and all help as this was an unexpected trajedy that has left my family devastated.  Thank you all for taking the time to read my story. Please keep my family and I in your thoughts.
