Dad’s incurred Medical Expenses

My dad( Eddie ) has had a really tough life with family members passing away. The first significant loss was when I was 16 and my mom passed away with lung cancer. I can remember that as if it was yesterday. Before my mom passed she requested to stay home instead of the hospital. At that time she had about two weeks to live. Every night before she feel asleep she wanted my dad to read her the Bible and say a prayer for her. Through that process my dad came to know the Lord. I’ve always believed that everything happens for a reason and sometimes we don’t know what those reasons are until a couple of days, weeks and sometimes years pass before we realize that “why”. Two weeks after my mom passed away, my grandma passed away of a broken heart for her daughter who just passed. That made my dad question God-why would He take away amazing people in our lives. Unfortunately, these are questions that we may never get answered until the day we are face to face with the Lord. After a couple months past my dad decided to move to Indiana with his good friend Dawn who years later became his wife. They did everything together and they loved each other very much. He was married to Dawn for 12 years. In 2008 my dad had a stroke that paralyzed his left side and made him not be able to work again. My dad was one of the hardest working people I know. It was very tough on he and Dawn financially and physically as my dad wasn’t able to do much with one arm. Fast forward to today, October 9th, Dawn passed away in her sleep from a massive heart attack. It was very unexpected for everyone. My dad is unable to work, and could use some help paying the bills. If you can donate to help my dad, I know he would appreciate it and I will be extremely grateful as well. Thank you for reading this and considering donating.
