Help Kendra Pierce father's death

An update was requested from Go Fund Me to include how the money will be spent and distributed to Kendra.

The funds are to be used to pay for burial/funeral expenses for Jack, as well as, support for Kendra while in between jobs.  I fronted her money in person while waiting for the withdrawals to kick in from Go Fund Me.  Now I am sending the funds through Paypal, with the next deposit today.  

I want to thank all of you for such a generous outpouring of love and support for my dear niece.  I can honestly say that she has expressed how deeply touched she is.  She is shocked at how quickly this has come together and reached our original goal.  

I hope to meet some of you at the different services held this weekend.

Thank you again,

Some of you know that my sister Laura passed away several years ago leaving her only child Kendra.  Last week Kendra lost her father suddenly and unexpectedly.  Unfortunately she was laid off from Amazon recently and is struggling while looking for a replacement.  Currently there is no sign of an insurance policy or a will.  At 29 she is burying another parent and the arrangements and costs are insurmountable at her young age and situation.  Please consider donating what you can to help Kendra in this very difficult time.

Thank you your thoughts, prayers, and consideration of support.
