Help toward Paul Jones' funeral costs during COVID

As you may well know, my father, Paul Jones, passed away on the 22nd of May. After his diagnosis for Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer, he fought for his life every day against this relentless disease. We had gone through almost every alternative therapy, spent thousands on possible treatments and battled through several rounds of exhausting chemotherapy. The support that everyone had given him was much appreciated, but unfortunately the cancer had the final say. It had taken his mobility, muscles, brain and wellbeing but it never changed his optimism and positivity. 

He was an incredibly kind, respected and intelligent person. His generosity was unbound  amongst his family and friends and I have never known such a strong individual and is a man I truly aspire to become. The way he has cared for his wife Tamara plus his sons Kristian and I, we owe him everything and more. 

A special thing he was proud of was his accolade as 'moderator' on the site 'PlanetSwans' for the Swansea City Football team. He would create posts under the pseudonym 'Lord_Bony' and enjoyed chatting to people like him from all across the world. I know how much he appreciated everyone in that community and was constantly showing me his popular posts on the forums.

We have been informed of his name being memorialised in the board on which he would spend hours moderating and commenting. I had tried to tell him in his last days but he was unresponsive. But I can tell you he would have been incredibly moved by that honour. He really did care for them all so much.

We are creating this fund because we have had the most heartbreaking few weeks. The Covid lockdown has taken a large financial toll on our family, as has it everyones. But if anyone is able to donate any amount, no matter how small, we would be insurmountably appreciative. We want to give him the funeral he truly deserves.

If you don't feel comfortable with this, feel free to donate to a charity for Cancer Prevention on his behalf:

Thank you all for your everlasting support, during and after his battle.
