Help with Death of father

New years eve was a tragic one for my family and especially my brother and I once we got the phone call my father was going to unexpectadley pass away and we needed to get to Green Bay a.s.a.p., It was shortly after arriving I had to make the gut wrenching decision to begin the process of letting him go.

My father was a jovial and kind spirit who despite our struggles for which there were many would give the shirt off his back even though he could not afford one to replace it.  He did right by my brother and I and once he lost his place I did right by him by letting him and my brother move in with me. 

His liver failure started to take him in June and one thing I will hold and aspire to emulate in my decline was though it visually withered him he never complained and fought as hard as he could before there was no fight left.

This leaves us to why I am reaching out though it is difficult for me to ask for help. I was awaiting approval to be my father's care giver to help us with the mounting expenses because I had to be home to help him and could not work. Thus the week from hell has put us in jeopardy on many fronts during theweek of New Years eve I brought my dad to the hopital expecting it to be the same as every other time, our pipes froze and broke, our father then passed unexpectedly and to add insult to injury our oven also followed suit and broke. Needless to say our end of 2017 was no celebration.

My father was by my side most of my nearly 40 years on this earth, I loved him dearly and would like to do right by him in death, I cannot do so at the moment and am looking for employment to try to dig out of this hole my brother and I now find ourselves in, I am here to ask for partial help with the funeral expenses I will try to figure out the rest.

Thank you for reading,
