But before we get too emotional, I want to tell a quick story.
About a year ago Juan and I were sitting on my front porch talking about a funeral I had gone to the night before. I told him how I had never been to a funeral that was so positive, so fun -- a genuine party. He laughed and then told me that if I died first, he'd make sure my funeral was a party, and in return, I made him the same promise.
So here we are, planning Indie's funeral; Reminiscing all the amazing, unique ways that he impacted our lives.
Now, why we're here. The financials...
As most of us can relate, Indie didn't have any life insurance and so the financial burden is falling onto his mother -- the last thing a mother should be thinking about in this unimaginable moment.
I know a lot of us close to Indie live modest, blue collar lives with not much of a disposable income. And I know this is a cliché line, but every dollar that you can give will greatly help his close friends and family close this chapter.
100% of the money will be given to Indie's mother and anything that is not used for the burial expenses will be put toward the wake (after-party, woo!), details of which are still being worked out -- be on the lookout for that FB event invite.
