John Blevins Memorial Service

My name is Katherine McAnelly, I have had the privilege to be John Blevins niece. As most of you by now know,  we lost this incredible man on September 24, 2017. Our family is currently dealing with getting his finances and life insurance in order. We hope to have his remains and belongings sent home within the next week or so. We would like to hold the memorial for him here in Aurora, IL. We know he has many friends and family all over the world. Please know we plan on making sure everyone has something to remeber him by. But for now we are trying to gather funds to get his memorial taken care of and done where is family is locted. we have a rough estimate of what everything will add up to. (Goal listed above). Any and everything that can be contributed  is greatly appreciated. We want to give him the memorial he truly deserves.  This man has truly saved my life and anything contributed I will be forever grateful for and will never be forgotten. 

I would like to have it on October 16, 2017. This is  very special day, As it is the day my mother (his sister passed) 

Again, Thank you for all your love and support through this difficult time.
