Help give Troy Ford a proper burial

Troy was called home September 6th. My brother had many struggles in life and now he will no longer suffer. God has called him home. Due to my mothers fixed income she is unable to provide a proper burial. When my parents finances were in better shape they did so much for so many over the years and today I hope that someone can do something for my mother now. I can't imagine the anguish and sorrow that she feels as a mother burying her child. I do however know the worry she has about providing a proper burial for him. Being my mothers first born and only child for 8 years they shared a special bond. She has been there for him his whole life, through thick and thin. She was his biggest supporter and advocate. She is very proud and therefore I haven't made her aware of this GoFundMe as of yet. I'd love to be able to surprise her with the money so she can bury her son. So please if you can donate anything any little bit would help no amount too small. Thank you
