Joseph Benacquisto Burial expenses

My father Joseph Martin Benacquisto was truly the defination of a Hero. He was a loving husband, father,and papa. Joe served as a police officer for 32 years in West Hartford CT.  During Joes service he recieved many awards one of which was Police Officer Of The Year. He also assisted in the hiring and mentoring of many new officers while building life long relationships with the West Hartford Community.  Joseph was often sought out by many other law inforcement agencies outside of the West Hartford community due to his expertise.
      My father touched so many lives in his work and at home as a father.  He meant so much to so many.   There are no words to describe the pain this loss has caused his family, friends and the West Hartford community.
         In honor of my fathers life I want to respect his wishes to be burried and at this time our family has come up short in his final burrial expenses.  We were able to come up with enough for the wake, and funeral services.  Unfortunately the cemetary cost are
$4, 375.00 and is needed by Jan. 6, 2018.
With out these funds my fathers last wishes will not be fulfilled.  This our last chance in coming up with this money and we are hopeful that this may touch someones heart and we will be able to move forward with my fathers burrial wishes.  
Anything that could be kindly donated will be greatly appreciated by our family.
Thank you so much and we could never begin to thank you enough for what this would do for our family.
