James Payne funeral

James our loving husband, father, and grandfather is in hospice surrounded by family. His life consisted of hard work and family. With his wife Lanice, they raised 4 children and 9 grandchildren. When he wasn't working, he loved to be home.

This year he began feeling bad, but continued working to take care of his family until he couldn't handle the pain. His trip to the hospital lead to 9 days of testing with no answers. They sent him home only to become worse. In an emergency, we took him to another hospital finding out that he had stage 4 cerrossis of the liver, and pneumonia among other complications. With some treatment he was able to return home, but we knew he would be on a restricted diet, and be in pain, but would be home with family.

Now here we sit at hospice wondering how we can live without him, and how will we cover the expenses for his funeral. As proud as he was, he wouldn't want this burden for his family.  He spent years working, but there is no insurance or support for funeral expenses. The family is asking for help to cover the funeral expense. Please share with anyone who would be willing to help in this time of need Any amount will be appreciated.
