In these past 3 years our family has suffered tremendous loss. First, in 2015 there was the sudden death of our grandmother, our grandpa died the next year 2016, and now we have lost our father in this tragedy. For my mom she has lost her mother, father, and husband. Now we are all she has left. My mom and dad always had each other throughout every struggle. Since we were all older now they had more time to spend together and had even talked about going on a vacation together someday.
What is heartbreaking is how my father never got the chance to be a grandpa and spoil his grandkids, or walk his daughters down the isle on their wedding day, or grow gray and old with my mom.
Now our family is left with another challenge, we have been going through financial struggles and my father did not have life insurance.
Since this was such an unexpected turn of events we are left attempting to pay for all of his funeral costs. This includes: grave plot, headstone, church/funeral services, and his transportation from the church to the cemetary.
Also, because we are uncertain about the exact cause of death or drowning, he will be undergoing an autopsy, which could take 2 weeks and will cost anywhere between 3000-5000 alone.
We greatly appreciate any and all help.
