Funeral Costs for Grandpa

As some of you may know on 01/06/20 Duff Mapes made his journey to a better place. He fought a long journey and battle after his accident 4 years ago. His journey was sudden for us and we appreciate all of the Kind words from Family and Friends.
Some of you may know he was attacked 4 years ago for his pain medication, he was left to die but by the grace of god, he was found and saved. Now paralyzed and needing around the clock care. His insurance policies and retirement were taken with no justice ever found. 

Duff came into my Mothers life 27 years ago and although he was dating her he got 4 unruly misfit daughters along with her. He took us all on with force from kindergarten drop offs, to surgeries and father daughter dances. He taught us how to ride horses and motorcycles. to our early mornings of chocolate cake for Breakfast ( dont tell your mother). Through these experiences Duff became a father and soon a Grandpa, He took on the role of grandpa like no other from sitting in on ABA sessions to taking my son his grandson to speech Therapy and Preschool.  He although wasnt able to do all these things for his youngest grandchild they had an amazing bond of dragons and silly faces.
He put so much into his Daughters and Grandchildren he is our super Hero.

Duff will live on in hearts and the things we do but as a family we would love to give him the type of send off a Hero would deserve. It took a strong man to love 4 girls although not biologically his he never made us feel this way.
please help us honor our super hero. Anything Helps
