My Dad's Funeral Services

My father has just died of Covid-19 at the age of 82. He was an inventor, and a fighter, and a storyteller. He was a husband, a father, and an excellent friend to get in trouble with. He was the son of a sharecropper, the grandson of a slave and the world is lesser without him.

But now we have to deal with the painful and expensive details that come at the end of a life as long, rich, and wonderful as the one my father led. And the unfortunate reality is that my family cannot do it alone. 

In this time of grief and need we are humbly reaching out to our community. The costs of the simplest services will exceed our normal monthly income. 

We hope that in this year where so many have lost so much that we can also find space in your hearts.

EDITED 11/29/2020

I thank everyone who has helped us so far. You have taken so much fear and stress out of a heartwrenching thirty something hours. I can't believe it's been less than two days. We have raised enough for funeral expenses but there are so many bills and fees that I wasn't in a position to find and add together yesterday morning after getting the news. 

Our most important goal has been reached, but my father was elderly and disabled and his death leaves my disabled mother in the position of a lot of Americans, swamped by debts and accounts that she pays regularly on but can't keep up with that all need to be brought current to closeout or transfer into her name. I am adjusting the amount to what is the best guess I can make on a Sunday night of what is owed. 

We thank you all so much for all the help so far and all your kind wishes. It has meant the world to our family.
