Honoring The Life Of My Dad

My father James passed into eternity on Tuesday.

For the past year dad fought extremely hard through multiple emergency surgeries, a stroke, physical, occupational, and speech therapy to climb the hill and return home to his family, but God had other plans.

My family and I know that he is truly at peace, now. One of the hardest things to do is laying a loved one to rest. While it is extremely difficult to process this loss, we now are burdened with figuring out how to afford to honor the memory of dad.

Since mom lost her job at the postal service, she was not able to keep up payments for life insurance and has dedicated nearly every waking hour to being by Dad's side as he fought to recover from a stroke, it has been a struggle.

I'm sure you probably see these campaigns posted very often. I just ask that you donate if you can and share if you can't, to help my family be able to focus on grieving the "loss of daddy" but also celebrating his life.

Thank you all.
