John Snively's Funeral Arrangements

"With a heavy heart I say good bye to yet another friend to substance abuse. Before you all respond with I'm so sorry posts, let me say a few words. John Snively and I are old friends with a good history of knowing each other. Before he past away, I was on vacation with family in Florida when he called me early in the morning and we had a nearly hour chat about life and the hardships of it. It was a great chat. John and I have had many of these chats over the years, as I have with many friends, I would call him randomly as he would call me to check in. But then months went by, no word from John until I was on vacation... I answered, we talked, I was heart broken to hear of his struggles but none the less there for him.. Today I found out he's gone, like many others I've had the pleasure of knowing. So today I ask with a heavy heart to friends and family to look into your own lives. Do you know someone who is struggling with addiction? Do you know someone who needs to talk? Do you know someone who just needs you to answer that one phone call? Do you know someone who needs you to be strong and say what needs to be said regardless of feelings? Because as it turns out, one talk, one phone call, one answer can mean the world to someone. Today is a very sad day for me yet I'm blessed to have so many amazing people in my life. Today I call on all of you to go the extra mile and listen, listen to friends, listen to family, and most of all listen to your gut when it tells you something is wrong.... RIP my friend, and may all of you take this message seriously and make a difference if you can...... much love❤"

Please help the family of Jonathon "Jon" Snively finance the funeral and help with the expenses of Jon's transfer from California to Michigan. As many people who have had the heart break of putting a loved one down to rest, those who have, know how stressful, devastating and financially strapping it can be. If 10,000 people could donate one dollar we could get our goal pretty easily without ease. Please donate with love and intent and rest assured how forever grateful Jon, and the family will be. Use the fate of his life to motivate us all to help our loved ones and our neighbors in times of need, and to prevent and free them from the devastating chains of substance abuse.

Funeral arrangements will be made after the family comes up with the appropriate funds to transfer Jon and finance the funeral and burial.
